Master of Science in Electrical Engineering

The purpose of this degree is to prepare students for advanced study and industry in the field of electrical engineering. The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (M.S.E.E.) is a degree program combining breadth across several areas of study within electrical engineering and specialization within one area, which includes an option to pursue thesis research under the guidance of a faculty adviser. Areas of study include communication and signal processing, computers and microelectronics, and power and control systems. The program is normally completed in three semesters of full-time study.

The admission requirements for this degree follow the existing admission requirements for master’s degrees in the ECE department. Students whose accredited B.S. degree is not in electrical engineering may pursue the M.S.E.E., 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 Circuit Analysis I 3
ECE 213 Circuit Analysis II 4
