Graduate Recruitment Fair - May 15th

UW Electrical Engineering Professional Masters Program Information Session April 23d

The UW Department of Electrical Engineering's Professional Master's Program (PMP) cordially invites you to attend our April 23rd PMP Information Session for prospective MSEE students.  

May 1st is our deadline to apply (for international students) and June 1st (for domestic students) for Autumn 2014.
Date:  Wednesday April 23rd, 2014

Time:  7 pm - 8:30 pm (7:00-8:00 pm panel; 8:00-8:30 pm, mingling/chatting in EE corridor)

Location:  UW Campus, EE Department, EE 125, in the EE building basement 

University of Washington
Department of Electrical Engineering
185 Stevens Way 
Paul Allen Center

If you are interested in obtaining your MSEE while working in industry, we hope you RSVP and attend to learn more about our MSEE program.

The majority of our EE PMP students work as electrical engineers full time and attend our program at night, once a week (6:00 pm to 9:50 pm).  Many of our PMP students work at companies that provide full or partial financial support for their employees to earn their MSEE degrees (seeing it as an employee investment for the future).  

In industry, MSEE degrees provide powerful leadership opportunities not always afforded to the BSEE.

Thank you for your interest in the Department of Electrical Engineering's Professional Master's Program at University of Washington.  We hope to see you on Wednesday, April 23rd at 7 pm.

Please contact Amy Feldman-Bawarshi with questions at
