The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) has a unique curriculum that provides students with advanced, in-depth knowledge across a breadth of electrical engineering topics, while encouraging students to develop a concentrated knowledge base within key areas such as:

  • Signal Processing
  • Embedded Systems
  • Biomedical Systems and Devices
  • Power Systems
  • Device Electronics
  • MEMS
  • CMOS

In each of these specific areas, we offer course sequences of concentrated study culminating in significant project work. Students learn in-depth knowledge in their area of interest, and obtain hands-on experience within key areas crucial for advanced professional practice.

Students may choose to fulfill degree requirements with coursework in a variety of current topics or through a research option.  Students who chose the research option will partner closely with EE faculty in their final year of study to conduct research and write a Master’s thesis. Full-time students are able to complete the degree requirements in 5 quarters, while part-time students are able to complete the degree requirements in three years.
