Master of Science in Electrical Engineering

THE PROGRAM

Program Overview

The  MS in Electrical Engineering (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.

Admission Requirements

University requirements:  

  • A baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution, or its equivalent from a foreign institution, with a GPA of 3.0 or higher in all work attempted in the last 60 credit hours of undergraduate study.
  • Official transcripts, and foreign evaluations if applicable, from all post-secondary institutions attended.

    Program requirements:

    • Three letters of recommendation
      • At least one letter must come from a professor at the applicant's undergraduate institution
    • GRE test scores
      • Taken within the last 5 years
      • 150 Verbal and 160 Quantitative
      • The GRE may be waived for current UNF Electrical Engineering undergraduate students if the following criteria are met:
        • Submission of an approved thesis faculty advisor (applicants are responsible for obtaining a UNF faculty member's agreement to serve in this role)
        • 3.0 GPA in the last 60 hours of undergraduate study 
    • 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 program webpage for contact information.

    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.
