The Master’s of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering degree (MSEE) is developed by the Weisberg Division of Engineering at the College of Information Technology and Engineering (CITE) to graduate electrical and computer engineers for serving highly employable electrical and computer engineering disciplines and provide skills based on industry needs. The master program is designed to prepare candidates for careers in industry or government or for pursuing a career in academia; both thesis and non-thesis options are available. Furthermore, graduates with this degree will contribute to West Virginia’s economic development, advance its competitive edge globally and contribute to improvement in the quality of life.
The Master degree (thesis or non-thesis option) requires 30 credit hours to satisfy the degree requirements. Requirements for the thesis option are 24 hours of coursework and 6 hours of thesis research. The non-thesis option requires 30 hours of coursework.
The program integrates in-depth knowledge of core areas in electrical and computer engineering, which include (1) Antennas and Wireless Communications, (2) Energy and Power Systems, (3) Control Systems, (4) Electronics and Embedded Systems. Both simulation and experimental-based learning tools are developed and applied in order to provide a comprehensive understanding of fundamental phenomena, processes, and system characteristics in these areas.
Applicants who are interested in joining the program are encouraged to apply online. Applications to a thesis-based degree might be considered for funding by the faculty based on the students’ academic standing after the first semester. However, there is no guarantee that student will receive a financial support.
