    Statement of Research

            The MSEE program is a thesis-only program which requires all students to secure a thesis advisor prior to admission into the program.  An approved thesis advisor must be a current UNF electrical engineering faculty member.  Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to contact electrical engineering faculty members to secure an advisor prior to applying to the program.   Applicants should visit the Department webpage for contact information. 

      Students should be aware that admission into any graduate program is granted on a competitive basis. Students meeting minimum requirements may be denied admission based on such factors as program capacity or academic discretion. Likewise, students may be considered for admission as an exception if stated admissions criteria are not met.

      Program Overview

      The MSEE program provides the opportunity for advanced study and research in the electrical engineering field to enhance professional opportunities in industry or provide the basis for further academic endeavors.  The program is a thesis-only program in which all students are required to complete an academic thesis with a faculty advisor.


      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.
