Our students have a variety of technical backgrounds from their prior degrees or professional experience. While most students have a science or engineering undergraduate degree, we also consider social scientists with an interest in technology issues and a strong quantitative background. EPP students go on to careers in government, business, consulting, academia, and non-profits around the world.
The MS program is a flexible professional program consisting of coursework with optional research or project work, including:
