The Master of Science program in Electrical Engineering is designed to provide theoretical knowledge as well as practical applications in the areas of communication systems, digital systems and computer engineering. Through these programs, working engineers are given an opportunity to continue their education on a part-time basis.
Students seeking admission should have completed an undergraduate program in electrical engineering, computer science, or a closely related field. To be considered for admission, students must submit an application, $50 application fee, a statement of intent, and transcripts. Letters of recommendation and the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) are optional. However, the GRE Subject Test in Computer Science is strongly recommended for all applicants to the Master of Science in Computer Science who do not hold an undergraduate degree in Computer Science. Additional coursework may be recommended or required as a condition of admission.
Students may transfer up to six (6) semester hours for courses completed at another regionally accredited college or university. Credits to be transferred must be taken prior to admission. Course grade must be at least a "B," and course must not have been used to satisfy degree requirements at another college or university.
During the first semester of attendance, the student should prepare a program of study with a faculty advisor. A degree candidate is required to complete, with an average grade of at least 3.0 ("B"), a program of study that must include thirty or more semester hours of graduate-level coursework and which may include additional prerequisite (undergraduate) courses, as deemed appropriate by the advisor in consultation with the department. Of the graduate-level coursework, at least fifteen semester hours are to be in 600-level courses. Students must achieve a grade of B (3.0) or better in all 500-level courses. Applicable courses generally include both CMSI and ELEC courses offered by this department, as well as appropriate courses from mathematics or other disciplines.
A Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.) degree is offered in Electrical Engineering. Programs of study are composed of courses in the areas of VLSI design and communications. The program must include at least fifteen hours at the 600 level, including ELEC 601 , plus the following courses:
One or more of these required courses may be waived if the student demonstrates satisfactory completion of a similar course, or competence in the subject matter. Waived courses will be replaced by electives at the 500 or 600 level.
