Master of Science in Electrical Engineering

  • Professors: Rison, Thomas
  • Associate Professors: R. Bond, Teare (Chair of the Department), Wedeward
  • Assistant Professors: El-Osery, Erives
  • Adjunct Faculty: Calloni, Krehbiel, Mansfield, Meason, Parameswariah, Reicher, Restaino, Wick, Xiao

The Electrical Engineering graduate program provides students with unique research opportunities, thanks to its close association with many research facilities. These facilities include Energetic Materials Research and Testing Center, Langmuir Laboratory, Magdalena Ridge Observatory, National Radio Astronomy Observatory, Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology, and Institute for Complex Additive Systems Analysis; all easily accessible from campus. These facilities can provide opportunities for students to participate in research related to leading scientific and engineering projects and allow them to achieve highly desirable educational and research experiences.

The student’s course of study must be approved by the student’s advisory committee, must fulfill the general requirements for the master’s degree (see the student catalog), and must include any two of the following courses:

  • EE 521, Measurement and Instrumentation
  • EE 531, Advanced Digital Design
  • EE 544, Modern Control Systems
  • EE 554, Embedded Control Systems
  • EE 570, Advanced Topics in Electrical Engineering

At least 12 semester hours must be approved Electrical Engineering courses. No more than six (6) semester hours of advanced undergraduate course work may be used to satisfy the degree requirements. Students are required to take at least six (6) credit hours from outside the Electrical Engineering department. Students may choose between an M.S. with thesis (24 credit hours of courses plus six (6) thesis hours) or an M.S. with independent study (27 credit hours of courses plus three (3) independent study hours). Students may be required to take an appropriate software course if they don’t have an appropriate programming background.

A five-year B.S./M.S. Electrical Engineering degree can be achieved by fulfilling the separate requirements of both an undergraduate degree and a graduate degree in Electrical Engineering in a five-year period. A combined minimum of 158 credit hours with at least 19 credit hours of 500-level courses and Independent Study (EE 590) is required. Students in the Electrical Engineering five-year program must normally apply for graduate standing at the end of their seventh semester. Graduate admission will be contingent upon adherence to the approved program of studies. Graduate status will be granted on fulfillment of the requirements for the B.S. degree.
