The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers programs leading to the Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.) and Master of Engineering (M.E.) degrees in electrical engineering. The Master of Science in Engineering program is research oriented and requires a formal research thesis. The Master of Engineering program is course work oriented. The programs provide advanced preparation in specialized areas of electrical engineering for recent graduates and working engineers who wish to improve their technical capabilities.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering also jointly offers two Master and a Ph.D. program in Computer Engineering with the Tandy School of Computer Science. The joint Ph.D. program in computer engineering provides opportunities for advanced specialization and scholarly research in computer engineering and related fields.
The mission of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to provide a modern, high quality educational experience for all our students. We provide the knowledge and principles on which electrical engineering is founded in order to graduate engineers who are technically competent, creative, articulate, and socially aware.
Master of Engineering. The M.E. degree program prepares the students:
- With advanced knowledge and principles to solve electrical engineering problems.
- To obtain new skills needed for professional development.
Master of Science in Engineering. The M.S.E. degree program learning objectives are the two above, and to provide the student with technical skills and knowledge for conducting research.
