Electrical Engineering

For some professions, a basic undergraduate program may suffice for an individual to obtain a rewarding, satisfying career. However, an increasing number of fields require workers to have additional education in order for them to build the skills and experience necessary to be successful. This is particularly true in Master of Science programs. Those who are interested in electrical engineering can find a competitive market much easier to navigate upon completion of a Master of Science degree program.

What is an MSc in Electrical Engineering? These programs provide students who already have a solid foundation in the field with more in-depth knowledge and skills related to the profession. Students study areas such as systems and control, signal processing and communication, electromagnetics and photonics, bioelectrical studies, circuits, materials and devices. Independent research and thesis work are often required, and programs can be completed in two to five years.

These electrical engineering programs allow students to build on their core knowledge in related areas and work toward specializing in a field that holds great interest for them. Students learn how to think critically, and students learn how to better approach problem-solving and research.

The cost of an electrical engineering Master of Science degree varies depending on the institution that is offering the program. Additionally, programs based at universities around the world may have significantly different tuition rates and administrative fees.

Careers in electrical engineering are plentiful, and prospects increase when candidates obtain a Master of Science degree. Graduates can build valuable careers in a wide variety of industries, including the aerospace, automotive, chemical, construction, and electronics industries. Other possibilities include the marine industry, oil and gas industry, and the pharmaceutical industry.

 

Students who wish to earn an advanced degree in electrical engineering but are unable to do so due to time constraints or distance from a university still have options available to them. Online courses and programs are available from many reputable institutions.

Imagine being part of building a satellite that you will see actually go into space. Freshman student Karina Quintana attended Professor Wilmer Arellano’s Engineering Orientation Class in fall 2012. The experiment was an extracurricular activity for EGN-1002 class and Karina took the challenge.

The idea would allow the satellite to passively align and allow picture taking. It can be seen from the video that not only would the onboard magnet align the axis of the satellite – according to the magnetic north – but it would also rotate the satellite over the axis. This satellite will go into space this year.
