MS Electrical Engineering

This program has a strong research component and is suitable for all students supported by research assistantships. The Master of Science programs require 24 hours of graduate course work, and 6 hours of thesis research. The Masters thesis program also serves as a foundation for the PhD program for suitably qualified students.

All requirements for a MS or ME degree should be completed within a period of six-years. Major areas of electrical engineering graduate studies and research are listed below:

MS students may take 2 Core Courses and the rest from the listed electives.
