The master of science degree in electrical engineering allows students to customize their course work while working closely with electrical engineering faculty in a contemporary, applied research area. Students may choose among the following six options to customize their graduate program of study: -Communication -Control -Digital systems -Integrated electronics -MEMs -Signal and image processing
Plan of study
The MS degree is awarded upon the successful completion of a minimum of 30 semester credit hours, which includes a 6 credit hour thesis. Students have the option of doing a 3 credit hour graduate paper in place of the thesis. In this case an additional course is required. Students may also choose a course-only option with comprehensive exam (0 credits). All students are expected to attend the Electrical Engineering Graduate Seminar (EEEE-795) for every semester they are on campus.
-Submit official transcripts (in English) from all previously completed undergraduate and graduate course work. -Have a GPA of 3.0 or higher. -Submit scores from the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). -Submit two letters of reference from individuals well qualified to judge the candidate's ability for graduate study, and complete a graduate application. -International applicants whose native language is not English must submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). -Candidates with a bachelor of science degree in fields outside of electrical engineering may be considered for admission, however, they may be required to complete bridge courses to ensure they are adequately prepared for graduate studies in electrical engineering.
Graduation requirements: Students must maintain a minimum grade-point average of 3.0 or higher. Under certain circumstances, a student chooses or may be required to complete more than the minimum number of credits.
