Program Objective

The objective of the Electrical Engineering (EE) program is to explore technologies and related industry opportunities in modern electric machinery, modeling and control of power electronics. A strong emphasis is placed on Energy Conversion and related technologies. Students are encouraged to consider MBA electives and Business of Energy courses to integrate business skills and compliment technical expertise.

Program Length:

  • One and one-half – Two years (full time)
  • Two and one half – Three years (Part time)

Degree Requirements

  • 30 credits of course work
  • MS Graduate Project EE 699

The MSEE requires a total of ten courses. Each student’s program should include at least seven electrical engineering courses and up to three electives. The remaining courses are selected from engineering (mechanical or electrical), computer science, MBA program, or from the Business of Energy Program. Not all courses from these areas are satisfactory selections; therefore all course selections must be approved by the graduate advisor before course registration. Each student must submit a program plan of study (to be approved by the advisor) before completion of the first course taken for graduate credit.

Students complete the degree by taking ten courses and the MS Graduate Project in Electrical Engineering. An option of replacing one or two courses with independent research conducted in the form of a Master’s Project (one or two course) or a thesis (two courses) requires departmental (Associate Dean) approval prior to beginning the program (these opportunities are limited). Students not completing a Master’s Project, thesis, or independent study are required to complete an MS Graduate Project in Electrical Engineering. This is a non-credit, no-fee project that serves as the culminating experience of the MS in Electrical Engineering degree.
