M.S.E.E Degree Requirements

M.S.E.E Degree Requirements 

The Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering (MSEE) degree is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skill, and professional practices needed to develop and design electrical and computer engineering related systems. The program also prepares students who desire to pursue further graduate work leading to a Ph.D. degree.

Each degree candidate is required to complete at least 30 graduate credit hours, depending on the "option" chosen below (thesis, or coursework only), with a cumulative Grade Point Average of 3.0 for the courses included in the student’s Plan of Study.  At least one-half of the minimum required hours for the degree must be earned in classes numbered 600 or above.

Each degree-seeking student must file an approved "Plan of Study," developed with a faculty advisor, before the student registers for the 12th credit hour. The Academic Regulations portion of the Graduate Catalog may be consulted for additional information.  The Plan of Study should define a Focus Area for the individual student that is related to the student’s technical and professional development interests.  Examples of focus areas include power, signal processing, control and embedded systems, communications, and integrated systems, computer architecture, computer vision and machine intelligence, and network and security. At least three of the Elective Courses (9 CR) must be within the student’s Focus Area at the 600-level.

 

Students may choose to complete either the "thesis option," or the "coursework only option" after consultation with their academic advisor.
