Master of Science in Electrical Engineering

Advanced communications equipment, defense-related electronics and leading edge technologies in integrated circuit (IC) and computer system design have created an environment in which electrical engineers have enviable career prospects. The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) degree program is designed to provide state-of-the-practice knowledge in modern systems design as it is applied to emerging and evolving electrical engineering technologies. In particular, there is an emphasis on in-depth study of digital communications, CMOS technology and computer architecture. At the same time, MSEE students can acquire the valuable skills in project management and leadership necessary for increased responsibility in the engineering field.

Outcomes:

  • Design advanced digital, spread-spectrum and space communications systems
  • Design advanced CMOS circuitry
  • Design advanced computer architectures
  • Effectively use project management techniques

Preparatory Requirements

The CTU Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree program is designed to provide technical depth in engineering topics that require a solid foundation in advanced mathematics (including calculus, differential equations and linear algebra), engineering and physics. Students who possess this background but need to refresh their technical or mathematical skills are highly encouraged to take MATH500. Students who have the technical or mathematical background but possess an undergraduate engineering degree other than electrical or computer engineering are highly encouraged to take EE500. Students from a non-engineering undergraduate background should consult with an Engineering Chair or Dean to design an undergraduate foundation engineering program in preparation for this degree.
