The headphones around your neck, the turn signal in your car, the web cam above your screen — each of these was made possible by an electrical engineer. In fact, all electronics devices receive the patient attention, the thoughtful design, and the creative input of electrical engineers.
As a student in the MS in Electrical Engineering program, you’ll use what you’ve already learned about physics, chemistry, and mathematics to help redesign or introduce the products of tomorrow. Doing so puts our i2e philosophy — invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship — into action. We support this kind of initiative by providing top-flight laboratories — home to developments in microwaves, VLSI design, and robotics — as well as a faculty dedicated to advanced research.
The program will prepare you for a professional career as an entrepreneur, a practicing engineer in industry, business or government at an advanced level, or to pursue a PhD degree in electrical engineering. Three core courses, two 1-year sequences, and electives provide breadth and depth across a number of electrical engineering sub-disciplines. We also give our students the freedom to structure their curriculum. You can choose a concentration from a number of stimulating fields, including the following:
- computer engineering
- telecommunications and networking
- signal processing
- image and video processing
- systems and control
- electronics and VLSI
- fields and waves
- plasma and atmospheric physics
- power systems and energy conversion
