The Electrical Engineering (EE) master’s program prepares graduates for a wide variety of opportunities, including corporate research, product development, management or entrepreneurial endeavors. The curriculum is flexible and includes selected business courses such as project management.
A baccalaureate degree in electrical engineering or related disciplines with a grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.0 in the last 60 hours of undergraduate engineering coursework is required. However, if that GPA is below 3.0 but more than 2.75, and if other indicators promise success in the program, rules may still allow probationary admission. Pre-program requirements may be specified in case the Bachelor’s degree is in a discipline different to which the candidate is applying. The applicant must also include:
- Application for admission
- Official transcripts of all college coursework
- Graduate engineering supplemental application
- Official results of the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) are required for all applicants. The applicant must score in at least the 75th percentile on the quantitative portion of the GRE. Admission to our degree programs is competitive and a higher score is recommended.
- For international students only, a minimum score of 80 on the TOEFL exam or a minimum score of 5.5 on the IELTS test is needed for acceptance in any graduate engineering program. Only one test score is required.
- Two letters of recommendation from professors at previous institutions or mentors at places of employment are required for students with a GPA less than 3.0 in the last 60 hours of undergraduate work.
