Electrical Engineering (MS)


Program Description
Degree Awarded: MS  Electrical Engineering

This program does not accept applications to the MS directly. Students should apply to the MSE program and, once admitted, consult with the MSE program advisors if interested in the MS program.

The electrical engineering faculty in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering offer a research program leading to the Master of Science in electrical engineering.

Graduate courses and programs are offered in the following six areas of specialization:

  • control systems
  • electromagnetics, antennas and microwave circuits
  • electronic and mixed-signal circuit design
  • electric power and energy systems
  • signal processing and communications systems
  • solid-state electronics

Degree Requirements

30 credit hours and a thesis

The credits earned toward this research degree must include a minimum of eight courses (24 credit hours minimum) and six hours of EEE 599 (thesis). As part of the eight courses, at least two should be outside the area of specialization.

Requirements include:

at least four EEE courses
at least two courses outside the area of specialization
at most two 400-level courses
at least three EEE 500-level courses
at most one EEE 590 Reading and Conference or FSE course

*A final oral examination in defense of the thesis completes the master's requirements.

Admission Requirements

Applicants must submit an online Graduate Education application.

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

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

Students desiring the Master of Science in electrical engineering must initially apply to the MSE program. Students who later obtain a research advisor may transfer to the MS program.
