Master of Science in Electrical Engineering

Effective July 2, 2019, this program is no longer available for future enrollments at the Colorado Springs campus.

The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering program is a 48-credit-hour program offered at the Colorado Springs campus. The program is designed to enable students to build on their engineering knowledge and develop an in-depth understanding of modern systems design for emerging and evolving electrical engineering technologies.

The program is designed to cover research, design, development, and testing of electronic and computer hardware and software. Students have an opportunity to be involved in advanced design projects including digital, spread-spectrum and space communications, CMOS circuitry, and computer architectures. They are encouraged to apply their knowledge and skills to course projects based on industry trends. Students have the opportunity to develop project management and leadership skills to help them prepare for senior-level engineering responsibilities.


This program does not lead to additional licensure or certification.  As such, CTU has made no determination regarding prerequisites for licensure or certification in any state or jurisdiction.
