Master of Electricity Markets

Restructuring of electricity delivery brings major changes to the electric power industry. Electricity is traded as a commodity in financial markets which affect the way electric power grids are controlled and operated. Today’s electrical engineers are compelled to understand both the technical and business sides of such changes in order to address the needs of the electric power industry.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Stuart School of Business have teamed up to offer a master’s degree in electricity markets. Combining courses from graduate programs in electrical engineering and in finance, the Master of Electricity Markets degree program provides graduate-level education in electricity suitable for electric power engineers. A background in finance is not required.

The admission requirements for this degree follow the existing admission requirements for other professional master’s degrees in the ECE department. Students whose accredited B.S. degree is not in electrical engineering may pursue this degree, provided that they have an adequate background and can demonstrate proficiency in the material contained in undergraduate courses equivalent to Illinois Institute of Technology's:

Course List
ECE 211
ECE 213
Circuit Analysis I
and Circuit Analysis II
ECE 311 Engineering Electronics 4
ECE 319 Fundamentals of Power Engineering 4
MATH 251 Multivariate and Vector Calculus 4
MATH 252 Introduction to Differential Equations 4

A student may demonstrate proficiency by successfully completing the courses or by demonstrating satisfactory performance in one or more special examinations administered by the ECE department.
