The M.S. in Engineering with concentration in Electrical Engineering at Louisiana Tech offers students the opportunity to specialize in certain areas of Electrical Engineering (Communications, Controls, Microelectronics, and Power Systems) beyond their B.Sc. EE degree. The M.S. students can conduct research leading to a thesis or a practicum, or choose a course work option.
The PhD. in Engineering is an interdisciplinary degree with a strong research emphasis and tied to one of the research centers at Louisiana Tech. The concentrations in Cyberspace Engineering, Micro/Nanoscale Systems, and Engineering Physics are closely related to the electrical engineering field.
The Electrical Engineering program at Louisiana Tech University takes a project-driven, student-centric approach to teaching. During the educational process, students perform hands-on activities in circuits, electronics, microcontroller, optoelectronics, communications, controls, and power laboratories.
The students at Louisiana Tech can choose concentrations in one or more of the following areas: the design and development of control systems; the design and development of electronic and solid state devices; the control, conversion, and distribution of energy; and communications including data transmission and retrieval.
Over the years, the Electrical Engineering Program at Louisiana Tech has provided a top-quality education founded on a tradition of excellence. The nationally accredited program [by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org] is designed to prepare graduates for rewarding careers and professional opportunities.
