Master of Science in Electrical Engineering
The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) curriculum is designed to provide students with advanced studies in the state-of-the-art technology to become innovators, researchers and technical leaders in their profession. The MSEE is a coursework-based or thesis-based degree offering students the opportunity to acquire advanced skills and conceptual understanding of topics in more depth than offered by a traditional Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering degree. Graduates will be able to apply these concepts directly to applications in many diverse fields, but also with special emphasis towards focused areas in biomedical devices and sensors, renewable energy, and embedded system design and characterization.
Students will have their choice of courses taught by the faculty in areas such as mechanical systems (MEMS), flexible electronics and photovoltaics, biomedical devices, power systems, Micro-electro- (bioMEMS, photonics, and ultrasound), and microprocessor systems. In addition to technical mastery, the curriculum prepares students to be aware of ethical norms and societal and global needs when solving engineering problems. The curriculum also prepares students to be productive in a diverse global environment with effective communications skills and the ability to function in teams.
The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering has the following objectives:
To prepare students to be technically competent professionals who can assume advanced responsibilities such as leadership roles in research and development (R&D) positions as well as other managerial roles in their professions.
To prepare students to be innovators and researchers working at the forefront of their fields to advance knowledge.
To prepare students who are aware of ethical standards and understand the importance of considering societal and global needs in devising engineering solutions.
To prepare students who are productive in a diverse global environment with effective communication skills and the ability to work in teams.
