Courses for Electrical and Computer Engineering Emphasis

Students selecting the Electrical and Computer Engineering emphasis are expected to have an undergraduate degree in Electrical or Computer engineering or a closely related field. A minimum of 33 credit must be taken for the M.S.E Electrical and Computer Engineering program.

The course requirements for the Electrical and Computer Engineering emphasis are shown in the following table.

Elective Graduate Courses

The elective graduate courses may be chosen from any of the available graduate engineering courses, including the emphasis-specific courses, or other graduate courses from different disciplines. The graduate electives from disciplines other than Engineering must be pre-approved by the graduate program director of the School of Engineering.


Capstone Experience (3 - 6 credits)

The culminating experience route for each student must be approved by the Graduate Program Director. From among the three culminating experience routes, students normally select either the Capstone M.S.E. project route for six credits or the culminating M.S.E. thesis route for six credits. The project and thesis routes are equivalent: the master’s project is reserved for proprietary work, whereas the master’s thesis is reserved for nonproprietary work. The culminating experience requires the following courses:

EGR 690 - Capstone Design Project Credits: 3 OR  EGR 693 - Master’s Project  Credits: 1 to 6 (maximum of 6).

Students may register for EGR 693 more than once, for a combined total of six credits. Students who need to complete their culminating project after finishing the six credits of EGR 693 must continuously register for EGR 694 - Continuation of Master’s Project Credits: 1. The credit for this course does not count towards the minimum of 33 credits of the M.S.E. program.

OR 

EGR 695 - Master’s Thesis Credits: 1 to 6; maximum of 6. Students may register for EGR 695 more than once, for a combined total of six credits.                        
Students who need to complete their culminating thesis after finishing the six credits of EGR 695 must continuously register for EGR 696 - Continuation of Master’s Project or Thesis Research Credits: 1
