Electrical Engineering


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.


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