Option B: Non-Thesis option with 33 semester hours of course work and 3 semester hours of EENG 5890- Directed Study, excluding undergraduate prerequisites, leveling courses, and EENG 5932- Internship.

Course Selection

1.  All students are required to take the following four core courses with a grade of B or better:

  • EENG 5520- Design and Testing of Digital Systems
  • EENG 5530- Analog Integrated Circuit Design
  • EENG 5610- Digital Signal Processing
  • EENG 5810 Digital Communications

2.  The students are required to take at least 18 (thesis option) or 24 (non-thesis option) semester hours of organized graduate courses in Electrical Engineering excluding:

  • EENG 5890- Directed Study

3.  Up to 6 semester hours of EENG 5890 Directed Study and EENG 5900- Special Problems are counted towards MSEE program. 

Leveling Courses

A student whose undergraduate major is not Electrical Engineering must take additional leveling courses that will be decided by the Electrical Engineering graduate advisor on an individual basis.

Degree Plan

The Student should select a major advisor from the EE Department and together develop the Degree Plan before the second semester. The Graduate Program Director will provide general guidance for the course selection and other academic questions in the student's first semester. Failure to submit the degree plan will result in a block on course registration.
