What other degrees will an electrical or computer engineering degree prepare me for?

Whether you are interested in pursuing a professional degree in law, medicine, dentistry or business, an electrical or computer engineering degree will help you. No matter the profession, there's always a need for people who know how to solve problems, think logically, and clearly and positively express ideas. Though many professional schools have requirements for admission that go beyond the traditional boundaries of an engineering education, we can help you tailor a program to meet those requirements with minimum or no overload. In fact, the College of Engineering has a course of study that leads to a business administration minor, which expedites entry into Marquette's MBA program.

Over the years, several of our graduates have earned professional degrees in law, medicine, dentistry and business, in addition to graduate degrees in electrical, computer and other engineering fields.
