PLEASE NOTE: The MSIT program has been moved to the new School of Professional Studies. While the EECS department continues to offer and teach the MSIT courses and advise its students, all students admitted to the program after May 2021 will be students of the new school and will receive their Master's degree from the new school.  Students admitted to the program prior to the above date will receive their Master's degree from the School of Engineering. There will not be any changes in the course offerings, advising etc and the transition will be 100% transparent.

The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science offers a graduate degree in Information Technology at its KU Edwards Campus location. The two programs are designed to address the Kansas City metropolitan IT workforce needs and provide state-of-the art introductory and advanced educational opportunities in IT disciplines such as information security, computer networking, IT project management, systems administration, Web technologies, system architecture, and database systems, and provide pathways to highly in demand and highly paid IT careers.

The EECS department now offers two new graduate certificate degree programs, one in cyber security and one in software engineering.
