Master of Science in Electrical Engineering The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) is a coursework-based or thesis-based degree offering students the opportunity to acquire advanced skills and conceptual understanding of topics beyond the scope of a traditional BSEE degree. Graduates will be able to apply these concepts directly to applications in many diverse fields, but also with special emphasis towards focused areas in biomedical devices and sensors, renewable energy, and embedded system design and characterization.
The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) curriculum is designed to provide students with advanced studies in the state-of-the-art technology to become innovators, researchers and technical leaders in their profession. The MSEE is a coursework-based or thesis-based degree offering students the opportunity to acquire advanced skills and conceptual understanding of topics in more depth than offered by a traditional Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering degree. Graduates will be able to apply these concepts directly to applications in many diverse fields, but also with special emphasis towards focused areas in biomedical devices and sensors, renewable energy, and embedded system design and characterization.
The Master of Science in Electrical Engineer program allows you to earn your master’s degree in a convenient program that can be taken part-time or full-time, with evening and daytime options available. The MSEE program will advance your experience in the electrical engineering field as you gain applied skills in designing, analyzing and optimizing electronic and electrical systems.
Students will have their choice of courses taught by the faculty in areas such as mechanical systems (MEMS), flexible electronics and photovoltaics, biomedical devices, power systems, Micro-electro- (bioMEMS, photonics, and ultrasound), and microprocessor systems. In addition to technical mastery, the curriculum prepares students to be aware of ethical norms and societal and global needs when solving engineering problems. The curriculum also prepares students to be productive in a diverse global environment with effective communications skills and the ability to function in teams.
The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering has the following objectives: - To prepare students to be technically competent professionals who can assume advanced responsibilities such as leadership roles in research and development (R&D) positions as well as other managerial roles in their professions. - To prepare students to be innovators and researchers working at the forefront of their fields to advance knowledge. - To prepare students who are aware of ethical standards and understand the importance of considering societal and global needs in devising engineering solutions. - To prepare students who are productive in a diverse global environment with effective communication skills and the ability to work in teams.
Curriculum The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering curriculum provides students with advanced, in-depth knowledge across broad categories of electrical engineering activity. The degree also offers an opportunity to concentrate a student’s educational effort in several areas of electrical engineering: - Signal Processing - Embedded Systems - Biomedical Systems and Devices - Power Systems - Device Electronics - MEMS
The MSEE is unique in its project-based focus in areas such as biomedical devices and sensors, renewable energy and microprocessor system design and characterization. In each of these specific areas of concentrated study we offer course sequences in which the last course of a given sequence has significant project work so as to provide students with in-depth knowledge in that area and serve as a culminating experience for that sequence. Students are required to take two of these project courses, and thus complete at least two of these sequences as part of the program requirements.
The program is designed to equip students to be competitive in their career field- the average annual salary of someone with a master’s in electrical engineering is about $11,000 more than someone with a bachelor’s degree—about half a million more over the course of a career.
A Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from an accredited institution. Students may also enter into the program with an appropriate Bachelor’s Degree other than in EE from an accredited institution. With regard to an appropriate Bachelor’s Degree, would consider, for example Physics, or Mechanical or Biomedical Engineering with some appropriate EE experience or course work.
