- IEEE Computer Society (IEEE-CS) and the University of Massachusetts Amherst Global (UMass Amherst Global) are teaming to develop and support the growth of scientific expertise and talent of Chinese students in the electrical and computer engineering industry. In particular, they will co-promote their respective academic offerings in support of electrical and computer engineering fields.
Both organizations will define future educational needs and create related material for their shared membership and students. IEEE-CS and UMass Amherst Global will also benefit from each other’s strong brand recognition and joint marketing campaigns.
Andy Chen, IEEE-CS Vice President of Professional and Educational Activities Board, recognized the Asia Pacific region as one of the key areas for IEEE-CS’s worldwide expansion. “IEEE-CS is very pleased to welcome UMass Amherst Global to join our global partnership program,” said Chen. “We appreciate the noticeable increase of student membership in Asia-Pacific (APAC) region in recent years; particularly in China,” said Chen. “Together we seek to develop and support the scientific expertise and talent of our student members in the electrical and computer engineering industry in the APAC region.”
"We are proud to partner with IEEE-CS, an organization that shares our passion for advancing the field of computer engineering across borders and cultures,” said Alex Phillips, Managing Director of UMass Amherst Global. “We are excited to launch our innovative, live-lecture learning model, and to share the inaugural MS in Electrical & Computer Engineering with to the IEEE community."
IEEE Computer Society, the computing industry’s unmatched source for technology information and career development, offers a comprehensive array of industry-recognized products, services, and professional opportunities. Known as the community for technology leaders, IEEE Computer Society’s vast resources include membership, publications, a renowned digital library, training programs, conferences, and top-trending technology events.

Developed by the University of Massachusetts Amherst (USA), the M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering Field degree program is a special opportunity for engineers in China. The accelerated 16 -month MS is designed for newly graduated undergraduate students and working engineers to attend face-to-face, live two-way video lectures at Shanghai, Beijing, or other UMass Amherst Global Classroom locations. Classes will be delivered by UMass Amherst Engineering faculty two days per week (approx. 5-6 hours), and the students can study while they work to get the same master degree as offered at UMass Amherst on campus. The Computer Engineering program at UMass Amherst is globally recognized and fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and ABET for engineering.
