Program Description

Master in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

BRAC University

M. SC./M. ENGG. IN ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING

Modern electronics, communication and power systems, such as mobile telephones, digital TV, Internet, wireless networking, and nanotechnology are bringing a revolution in business and in the lives of individuals. The global economy relies increasingly on high-speed data and other digital data networks interconnecting computers and other digital devices across the world. All aspects of business, from research and development to production, marketing and sales, benefit from the rapid advances in such technology. Continuous advancements in technology enhance our social lives, entertainment, and education by providing media compression and seamless connectivity between equipment.

The objective of the degree is to provide the students with well-informed and well-balanced electronic/telecommunication/power system engineering tools to solve real-world problems. Students would be trained in research methodology so that they can contribute to the creation of new ideas. The requirements of IEEE and curricula of North American and European universities and institutes have been taken into consideration while designing the course.

Structure of the Master's Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Courses required for the Master's Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering with major in Telecommunication/Electronics/Power System consist mainly of electronics/telecommunication/power system core courses, elective courses, and a project/thesis. Each student is required to successfully complete a minimum of 36 credit hours with a minimum CGPA of 2.65 out of 4 to graduate. A student may also complete an optional non-credit Internship course. The duration of the internship will be a maximum of 8 weeks. A student may also be required to take remedial and supplementary non-credit courses to improve study skills, presentation and communication skills.

The minimum duration of the M. Sc../M.Engg. program shall normally be three semesters. Maximum duration to complete the program is five years from the date of the first admission in the program. Full-time students must register for a minimum of 9 credit hours and a maximum of 15 credit hours per semester. A part-time student may register for a maximum of 6 credit hours of course in any semester.

Credit distributions for M.Sc./M.Engg. Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering are as follows:

M.Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

  • Courses = 18 credits
  • Thesis = 18 credits

M.Engg. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

  • Courses = 30 credits
  • Project = 6 credits

Students of M.Sc./M.Engg. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering with major in Telecommunication or Electronics or Power System have to take minimum three core courses from major area and three elective courses from course areas, outside the area of major.

Students intending to do major in Telecommunication will take at least three core courses from the following list of courses and will take at least three elective courses from multiple course areas outside the area of Telecommunication:

  1. EEE 510: Signals, Systems and Stochastic Process (3 credits)
  2. EEE 511: Cellular Mobile Communication (3 credits)
  3. EEE 512: Telecommunication Transmission Technologies (3 credits)
  4. EEE 513: Communication Services Networks (3 credits)
  5. EEE 514: Optical Communication System (3 credits)
  6. EEE 520: Advanced Digital Communications (3 credits)

Students intending to do major in Electronics will take at least three core courses from the following list of courses and will take at least three elective courses from multiple course areas outside the area of Electronics:

  1. EEE 510: Signals, Systems and Stochastic Process (3 credits)
  2. EEE 540: Advanced Semiconductor Devices (3 credits)
  3. EEE 541: Advanced VLSI Design (3 credits)
  4. EEE 542: Advanced Digital Signal Processing (3 credits)
  5. EEE 543: Power Semiconductor Circuits and Drives (3 credits)
  6. EEE 550: Advanced CMOS Technology (3 credits)

Students intending to do major in Power System will take at least three core courses from the following list of courses and will take at least three elective courses from multiple course areas outside the area of Power System:

  1. EEE 560: Optimization of Power System Operation (3 credits)
  2. EEE 561: Advanced Protective Relays (3 credits)
  3. EEE 562: Power System Stability (3 credits)
  4. EEE 563: Power System Planning (3 credits)
  5. EEE 564: Advanced Machine Design (3 credits)
  6. EEE 574: Modern Control Theory (3 credits)

Students intending to do M.Engg. degree with major in Telecommunication/Electronics/Power System will take four additional courses with their three core and three elective courses.

Thesis/Project

In addition to successful completion, of course, works every student shall submit a thesis/project on his/her research work, fulfilling the requirements as detailed below.

Every candidate submitting a thesis/project in partial fulfilling of the requirements of a degree, shall be required to appear at an oral examination, on a date or dates fixed by the chair of the department and must satisfy the examiners that he/she is capable of intelligently applying the results of this research to the solution of problems, of undertaking independent work, and also show evidence of satisfactory knowledge related to the theory and technique used in his/her research work.

Admission Criteria

A student must have B.Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering/ Electrical Engineering/Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering/ Electronic and Communication Engineering or equivalent degree in related areas. Students having B.Sc. degree in Computer Science /Computer Science and Engineering need to take a number of undergraduate prerequisite courses listed below. A number of courses may be waived if the candidate has already completed equivalent courses. The student must have a minimum CGPA of 2.50 out of 4 or at least a second class in B.Sc.
