Degrees Granted: Master of Science (M.S.E.E.), Master of Science Online (M.S.E.E. online), Master of Engineering (M.Engr.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)
The Department of Electrical Engineering offers graduate programs leading to Master of Science (M.S.), Master of Engineering (M.Engr.) or Ph.D. degrees. The M.S. degree is offered with both the thesis and non-thesis options. The non-thesis M.S. degree is also offered online, which requires completion of an independent study. The M.Engr. degree is an engineering practice-oriented degree that requires the completion of an engineering design project.
The Department also offers combined programs, including a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE)/Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (M.S.E.E.) and a B.S.E.E./M. Engr. The intent of the combined programs is to allow qualified students to complete requirements for both degrees in one year beyond that required to receive the baccalaureate degree. Students may apply for this program upon completion of 95 credits toward the Bachelor’s degree.
The Department of Electrical Engineering maintains strong research emphases in applied electromagnetics, antenna design, biomedical signal and image processing, biomedical device design, cognitive radio, microwave and radar engineering, mobile health-monitoring, neural and cardiovascular engineering, power electronics, renewable energy systems, sensor networks, signal and image processing, smart grid modeling, unmanned aerial systems, and wireless communications. The research programs, laboratory facilities, close student-faculty interaction, and strong mentoring and academic advising facilitate an environment of scholarly activity and prepare students for corporate and government positions in research and development.
