master of science in electrical engineering

The mission of the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) degree program is to prepare graduates for advanced careers in electrical, electronics, and computer engineering industries and provide them with the foundation to pursue the PhD degree in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or related fields if they choose to do so. The MSEE program supports the university’s mission in fostering access and opportunity and application of knowledge responsive to the needs of a diverse student population and the social and economic needs of the state and region.

About This Program

The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) program emphasizes the theory and application of advanced electrical and computer engineering principles utilizing analytical, computational, and experimental methods and tools. The goal of the program is to produce forward-looking engineering professionals who are capable of making significant contributions to society.


Students in the MSEE degree program may opt for either the thesis or the non-thesis options. In either case, the program requires a minimum of 30 semester hours of graduate-level courses with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0, not including any make-up requirements specified by the EE Master’s Committee.


Career Fields

Graduates with MSEE degree are needed for design, research and development as well as supervisory positions in industry and government.   They are typically recruited by companies within various engineering sectors including aerospace, automotive, communication, control, computer, defense, electronics, energy, information, power generation and distribution including utilities, manufacturing including materials and metals, oil and gas. Graduates of the MSEE program with Thesis Option will also be well prepared to pursue the terminal degree of PhD in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or related fields.
