Master of Science in Electrical Engineering Program

Our MSEE Program provides five concentration areas students can choose from: Circuits, Computing Systems, Devices, Power Electronics and Energy Systems, and Signals and Systems. Students seeking a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering need to select a concentration area and complete 33 semester hours beyond the baccalaureate.

For each concentration area, students must complete three core courses and eight elective courses (of which six must be Electrical Engineering graduate courses, and two can be graduate courses offered by the Erik Jonsson School). It is highly recommended that students consult the EE Concentration Electives Advising list when choosing elective courses in their respective concentration areas.



Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering Program

Our EE PhD Program has nine research areas students can choose from: circuits and systems, communications, control systems, digital systems, photonic devices and systems, power electronics and energy systems, RF and microwave engineering, signal processing, and solid state devices and MF. Students seeking a Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering need to select a research area and complete minimum 75 semester hours beyond the baccalaureate.
