The program in electrical engineering prepares students for careers in research and development, and aims to endow graduates with the ability to identify, analyze and address new technical and scientific challenges. At present, the department offers graduate coursework in six general areas: (1) computer engineering; (2) control, robotics and intelligent systems; (3) electro physics; (4) image and signal processing and interpretation; (5) power engineering and energy; and (6) telecommunications and networking. The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree requires a minimum of 45.0 approved credits chosen in accordance with a plan of study arranged with the permission of a student’s advisor and the departmental graduate advisor. Students who complete a six-month period of internship through Drexel’s Graduate Co-op Program (GCP) must complete 48.0 credits including 6.0 GCP credits. The plan must contain a selection of core courses from the department's offerings and may include appropriate graduate elective courses from other engineering departments or from physics or mathematics. Further information can be obtained from the department website or from the graduate advisor. All students also are encouraged to engage in thesis research. The combined thesis and research cannot exceed 9.0 credits.
