Master of Science in Engineering – MSE (concentration in Electrical Engineering)
Students desiring to pursue a concentration in electrical engineering must have a baccalaureate degree with a major in the same discipline from an Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org accredited program. Students who do not possess this background are not discouraged from applying, but, in general, must expect some non-graduate credit background work in order to pursue their graduate program effectively and successfully. As the master’s degree is generally accepted as a higher level of intellectual accomplishment than the baccalaureate degree, the student must expect his/her program to be structured accordingly. The student will be required to remove any deficiencies in mathematics, science, engineering, and communication. In particular, students with a baccalaureate in mathematics or the physical sciences should expect remedial courses stressing engineering analysis, synthesis, and design.
At the time of graduation, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate written and oral communication of engineering principles.
2. Expand their knowledge in one core technical area in engineering including relevant engineering mathematics.
3. Exposed to various research areas through independent study.
4. Demonstrate competence by being selected for employment by industrial, academic, or government entities or by pursuing further graduate studies.
An official GRE score is required for admission. A minimum score of 1070 total in the Verbal and Quantitatitve (V+Q) sections of the GRE is used as a guideline for all student admissions, and is especially important for international students. U.S. students with a lower GRE score may also be admitted if they have an undergraduate GPA of at least 2.8 from an Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET-accredited engineering program.
