Master of Science - Electrical Engineering

The M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering (Thesis or Non-Thesis Option) requires 30 credit hours. Requirements for the thesis M.S. are 24 hours of coursework and 6 hours of thesis research. The non-thesis option requires 30 hours of coursework. A maximum of 6 Independent Study course units can be used to fulfill degree requirements.

There are three tracks in Electrical Engineering: (1) Antennas and Wireless Communications (AWC), (2) Energy Systems and Power Electronics (EPSE), and (3) Information and Systems Sciences (ISS). Students are encouraged to decide between tracks before pursuing an advanced degree. Students are also encouraged to speak to their Advisor and/or a member of the EE faculty before registering for classes and to select a permanent Advisor as soon as possible.
