The department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers both Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) and Ph.D. in Computer Engineering degree programs.

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE)

The MSEE program provides advanced study in specialized areas such as computer software and networking, control, microelectronics and embedded system, signal and image processing, power systems and telecommunication. The MSEE program prepares students for a professional career in industry or entry into a doctoral program or professional school. The MSEE program builds upon the broad foundation provided by a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering by supplying depth in specific areas of Electrical and Computer Engineering through advanced coursework and a thesis or project experience. The MSEE Program students pursue either a thesis or non-thesis option.

Exciting research areas and course work emphases are available to meet a variety of goals and interests.
