The Master's of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) curriculum provides students with the skills needed to understand, design and develop new technologies and applications in the field. These skills allow graduates to make immediate contributions to their employers, satisfy personal and professional goals, and become leaders in industry.
The program, designed to meet the needs of working engineering professionals and taught from a practitioner’s perspective, builds on students’ prior knowledge
through a combination of program core and focused concentration coursework.
Program educational objectives are the accomplishments graduates are expected to achieve during the first few years of employment. MSEE program educational objectives include:
- Practicing the profession of engineering at a level beyond that of a baccalaureate graduate.
- Developing solutions to engineering problems in the context of technical, global, environmental and economic constraints.
- Providing technical and/or managerial leadership in the electrical engineering field. Program outcomes are the skills and abilities students are expected to demonstrate at graduation. Program outcomes for the MSEE program are:
- Analyzing, designing and implementing solutions to complex engineering problems using applicable tools.
- Applying U.S. and international standards, including those for health and safety, to design solutions to ensure interoperability with other conforming products,
processes and services in U.S. and international settings.
- Applying the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Code of Ethics and other ethics guidelines to work in the engineering profession.
- Effectively communicating and resolving issues with both technical and non-technical colleagues.
- Accessing and using information to enhance expertise
and professional standing.
