Program details

The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering program integrates theory and applications. Courses are typically scheduled in the late afternoon and early evening to serve the needs of both full-time and part-time students. The program is suitable for students planning to continue their studies at the doctoral level, as well as those who do not plan formal studies beyond the master's degree. Each student plans a program of study in consultation with an advisor appointed by the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The program includes required courses and an integrated selection of courses in the student's field of interest. The following areas of specialization are offered for graduate study and research:

    • Communication Systems
    • Computer Systems
    • Control Systems
    • Power Electronics and Power Systems
    • Nanobiotechnology

    Preparatory Program

    Graduate students who do not have an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering must complete the following courses with a grade of B or better. This program is intended to prepare students for graduate courses in electrical engineering. Students who previously earned a grade of B or better in an equivalent course can have the corresponding requirements waived with prior authorization by the program.
