Electrical Engineering at SIUE

For the master of science degree in electrical engineering, courses are offered primarily in the areas of communication systems, computer systems, computer vision and image processing, power and control systems, IC design, and signal processing.

Career Outlook

Top-rated companies such as Boeing, Anheuser-Busch and many more hire SIUE graduates. Stand out by earning a graduate degree in electrical engineering. By building on an undergraduate foundation and conducting research alongside expert faculty at SIUE, students can enhance their skills in systems analysis and design, engineering design and development, applications design and technical sales, production and manufacturing, or field service and user training. SIUE faculty are excellent professional resources – many are well respected consultants outside academia.

Admission Requirements

In addition to meeting the requirements for admission to the Graduate School, applicants must have an undergraduate grade point average of at least 2.75 (A=4.0) in engineering, mathematics, and physical science courses.

Applicants should normally have a baccalaureate degree in electrical engineering from an ABET-accredited program. Applicants whose undergraduate studies were completed at institutions in countries other than the United States must have a baccalaureate degree in electrical engineering comparable to the United States bachelor’s degree. For international students, it is highly recommended that GRE scores are submitted.

Applicants with degrees other than a baccalaureate degree in electrical engineering will be considered on an individual basis. Those with baccalaureate degrees in science and engineering, other than electrical engineering, may be admitted, subject to completion of appropriate undergraduate electrical engineering courses.

In exceptional cases, the graduate admissions committee may consider applicants who meet all Graduate School admission standards but who do not meet certain specified program admission requirements. The committee may consider other evidence that indicates high promise of the applicant’s success in the program. Such supportive evidence may include extensive professional experience, published research, patents, or outstanding graduate-level work at another institution.

After admission and before enrolling in any courses, students are required to meet with the graduate program director who appoints, in consultation with the student, an advisory committee suited to each student’s background and interests. The chair of the advisory committee serves as the student’s academic adviser. Students are urged to file an approved plan of study with their academic adviser by the end of the first term of enrollment in the program.
