Master of Engineering
The mission of the Department of Electrical Engineering Master of Engineering program is to promote critical thinking and creative skills based on the theory, principles, and techniques of electrical engineering. Graduates will be prepared for careers in private industry, government, and/or doctoral studies in electrical engineering or related fields.
Student Learning Goals
Goal 1: Students will develop a comprehensive and in-depth understanding of electrical engineering through graduate-level coursework.
Goal 2: Students will develop critical thinking skills through research activities or focused project activities.
Goal 3: Students will develop skills to communicate the results of their research in an effective and professional manner.
1. Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering or closely related field. Students holding B.S. degrees in other fields, e.g., physics, mathematics, and computer science, may be admitted to Provisional or Qualified status until selected undergraduate requirements in electrical engineering have been satisfied.
2. An overall undergraduate GPA of at least 2.5 or a GPA of at least 2.75 for the last two years.
3. Applicants holding degrees from non-ABET accredited programs/universities must submit scores from the General Test of the Graduate Record Examination.
4. Most international students will be required to achieve a minimum TOEFL score or equivalent. A minimum score of 550 on the paper-based test or 213 on the computer-based test is required. For the Internet-based TOEFL, minimum scores of 23/30 (speaking), 19/30 (listening), 19/30 (reading), and 15/30 (writing) are required. Applicants may also meet language requirements by presenting IETLS scores of 6.5.
5. Students who have received a Bachelor’s degree or higher from the United States or English-speaking Canada are not required to submit the TOEFL.
