Program Description
Degree Awarded: MS  Electrical Engineering (Arts, Media and Engineering)

A concentration in arts, media and engineering has been established as a collaboration between the electrical engineering program at ASU and the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. This concentration is available both for the MS and the PhD students admitted to this program who take two-thirds of their course, research and thesis credits from the electrical engineering program and one-third of the credits from the arts, media and engineering program. All applicants are strongly encouraged to see the FAQ on this concentration available at http://ecee.engineering.asu.edu/academics/doctoral-degrees/electrical-engineering-arts-media-and-engineering-m-s-ph-d/.

Electrical engineering students in the arts, media and engineering concentration undergo training toward integrating principles of digital signal processing, pattern recognition, computer vision and multimedia computing with transdisciplinary objectives, with the goal of enabling new paradigms of human-machine experience that directly address societal needs and facilitate knowledge. Examples include media-based intelligent systems for health care and well-being, as well as promotion of environmentally sustainable practices. For more information see http://research.ame.asu.edu.

Admission Requirements

Students interested in applying to this program must submit the online graduate admission application.

Students from ABET-accredited undergraduate programs who wish to be considered for a master's degree program must have a minimum GPA of 3.00 (on a 4.00 scale) in the last two years of undergraduate course work. Students from undergraduate programs that are not accredited by ABET must have a minimum GPA of 3.50 (on a 4.00 scale) in the last two years of undergraduate course work or have graduated first class with distinction and must score in the 90th percentile or higher on the quantitative section of the GRE general test.

An applicant whose native language is not English (regardless of current residency) must provide proof of English proficiency.

International students seeking teaching assistantships must demonstrate proficiency in spoken English by scoring at least 26 on the speaking portion of the Internet-based Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or 50 on the ASU-administered Speaking Proficiency English Assessment Kit (SPEAK).

Applicants should submit materials that reflect the hybrid nature of the arts and engineering degree, including a statement of purpose and curriculum vitae demonstrating interest and relevant experience in the area. Students will have the opportunity to upload their curriculum vitae and statement of purpose when completing the online application. Additionally, the arts, media and engineering program requires three letters of recommendation from individuals familiar with the applicant's ability to succeed in a transdisciplinary research environment.

Applicants must fulfill the requirements of both the Division of Graduate Education and the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.

What are Accelerated Degrees?
The accelerated bachelor's and master's degrees are designed by the academic programs to provide selected high-achieving undergraduate students with the opportunity to combine advanced undergraduate course work with graduate course work to accelerate graduate degree completion. These programs allow accelerated students to obtain both a bachelor's and master's degree within five years. Accelerated programs are not offered at Lake Havasu.
What are Concurrent Programs?
Students pursuing concurrent degrees earn two distinct degrees and receive two diplomas. ASU offers students two ways to earn concurrent degrees: by choosing a predetermined combination or creating their own combination. Predetermined combinations have a single admissions application and one easy to follow major map. To add a concurrent degree to your existing degree, work with your academic advisor. Either way, concurrent degrees allow students to pursue their own personal or professional interests.
What are Joint Programs?
Joint programs, or jointly conferred degrees, are offered by more than one college and provide opportunities for students to take advantage of the academic strengths of two academic units. Upon graduation, students are awarded one degree and one diploma conferred by two colleges.

What constitutes a New Program?
ASU adds new programs to Degree Search frequently. Come back often and look for the “New Programs” option.
What are Online Programs?
ASU Online offers programs in an entirely online format with multiple enrollment sessions throughout the year. See http://asuonline.asu.edu/ for more information.
What is WICHE (Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education)?
WICHE (Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education) allows master’s, graduate certificate, and doctoral students who are residents of western states to enroll in high-quality programs at participating institutions outside of their home state and pay resident tuition.
