The world of electrical and computer engineering is an ever-changing one. The advances in technologies over a new graduate’s professional career of approximately 40 years will be phenomenal. While the undergraduate coursework puts a solid foundation in mathematics, engineering science, and humanities, as well as the ability to tackle and solve new problems in a forthright manner, graduate school is the next step in a lifetime of learning for both new graduates and experienced working professionals. Gannon’s Electrical and Computer Engineering department offers two graduate programs for those who wish to continue their education in advanced subjects and stay abreast of the rapidly changing technological world: a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) degree and a Master of Science in Embedded Software Engineering (MSES) degree.
The goal of the program is to give an Electrical and Computer Engineering graduate the necessary education to be an effective design or systems engineer. The student shall devise a curriculum with his/her advisor to pursue knowledge in advanced control theory, system modeling, electronics, communication, systems engineering, and embedded software. The student must complete at least 9 credits of Electrical Engineering program courses and satisfy the project/thesis requirement in Electrical Engineering.
