The Master of Science (MS) program in Electrical Engineering is designed to prepare students for technically demanding careers in industry as well as for post-master’s graduate studies in Electrical Engineering or related fields. More specifically: It requires students to build depth in an Electrical Engineering specialization, selected from areas such as signal processing and communication, systems and control, electromagnetics and photonics, and materials, circuits, and devices. It requires students to take at least 4 credits of an ECE course at the 700 level. It affords students the opportunity to flexibly choose graduate electives to explore technical or professional interests within engineering. It has a practicum requirement that is satisfied by doing a 4-credit thesis, a 4-credit project, or taking two project-intensive courses. Curriculum The MS curriculum in electrical engineering requires completion of 32 graduate-level credits, while satisfying a specialization requirement and a practicum requirement. The remaining credits can be selected from a broad range of graduate electives. The credits of a course can only be used to fulfill the MS requirements if the student receives a grade of C or better in the course. Students should also maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 across all graduate-level courses taken while enrolled in the MS program.
