    Program Overview

    This program provides the opportunity for advanced study, field work, and research in the electrical engineering field to enhance professional opportunities in industry or provide the basis for further academic endeavors.

    The mission of the MSEE program is to prepare students to function in a demanding technical environment where their advanced electrical engineering education will allow them to solve uncommon problems in their field of expertise.  Through our commitment to electrical engineering research and requiring students to participate in such activities we will provide opportunities for expanded content knowledge and development of critical thinking skills outside of a classroom setting.  Students graduating with an MS in Electrical Engineering will receive the education that allows them to pursue a doctoral degree.

    Special Notes about the Program Applicants must have earned a baccalaureate degree in Electrical Engineering from an ABET-accredited program or its demonstrable equivalent.

    Community Connections The UNF School of Engineering began its outreach program in 2004. It is our goal to increase the quality, diversity, and number of students prepared to major and work in engineering and technology fields. Experience has shown that the best way to help our young students understand what engineers do is through a combination of field trips, in-class activities, and group discussions with professional and student engineers.
