The incessant expansion of the Internet, Wireless Communications, Information Technology and Alternative Energy Technologies continues to fuel demand for electrical engineers and computer scientists.
Majoring in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science thus offers excellent professional prospects and challenging career opportunities.
Programs of Study
Concentration areas: Bioinformatics, Distributed and Real-time systems, High Speed Communications and Networking, Intelligent Information Systems, MicroOptics and BioImaging, and Signal and Image Processing.
Two options are available in the M.E.E. Program. The non-thesis option requires a minimum of 30 semester credit hours (SCH) of approved course work. The thesis option requires a minimum of 24 SCH of approved course work plus a thesis comprising six SCH of research guidance. The approved course work must include at least 18 SCH of approved electrical engineering courses. The remaining courses must be in engineering and science disciplines and approved by the graduate coordinator of the Department.
The M.S.C.S. program has two options, the thesis option and the non-thesis option. For both options, each student must submit a program of study to the Department for approval upon entering the program. The program of study must contain a minimum of 30 SCH of approved graduate-level courses comprised of at least 18 SCH of Core Courses and 12 SCH of Elective Courses. The Core Courses must be selected from courses of four areas of concentration: Computer Science Foundations, Computer Systems, Software Systems, and Computing Methodologies such that at least three SCH is chosen from each of the areas of concentration.
