MSc in Electrical Engineering
Advanced education is the best way to keep up with advanced technology. That's why a master's degree is such a valuable advantage to an engineer's career. It's also why RIT offers a full range of graduate programs in engineering. RIT's Department of Electrical Engineering offers experienced faculty and excellent facilities.
The Department of Electrical Engineering encourages practicing engineers in the greater Rochester and Buffalo industrial community to pursue the Master of Science degree. Since many of the courses in the graduate programs in engineering are scheduled in the late afternoons or early evenings, the master's program can be pursued without interruption of the student's existing employment commitments.
Students employed full-time in the industry can register for two courses or eight credits each quarter. A student who wishes to register for more than eight credits while employed full-time in the industry must obtain the permission of his or her advisor and the approval of the department head. It is possible for a student to obtain the MS degree in two academic years (or six academic quarters) by taking courses in late afternoons or early evening only.
Admission into the graduate studies leading to an MS degree in electrical engineering requires a BSEE degree from an accredited program. An applicant with a strong undergraduate record and a Bachelor of Science degree in another branch of engineering (mechanical, computer, industrial, etc) will also be considered for admission. In this case, the student must complete a certain number of undergraduate courses in order to bridge over to electrical engineering. Additional information in this regard is available from the department.
