Master of Science in Electrical Engineering

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.

The Master of Science in Electrical Engineer program allows you to earn your master’s degree in a convenient program that can be taken part-time or full-time, with evening and daytime options available. The MSEE program will advance your experience in the electrical engineering field as you gain applied skills in designing, analyzing and optimizing electronic and electrical systems.

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 prepares 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.
  • Innovators and researchers working at the forefront of their fields to advance knowledge.
  • Aware of ethical standards and understand the importance of considering societal and global needs in devising engineering solutions.
  • Productive in a diverse global environment with effective communication skills and the ability to work in teams.

The MSEE, as well as the Graduate Certificate in Electrical Engineering Foundations, are designed for student professionals, with afternoon and evening class times.
