Master of Science in Electrical Engineering
The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (M.S.E.E.) program offers students practice-oriented graduate-level education in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Concentrations include Computer Architectures and Microelectronics, Digital Signal Processing and Digital Data Communication, and Intelligent Systems and Control. The course sequence in Computer Architectures and Microelectronics provides students with advanced knowledge in current practices of computer design and development; hardware realization and integrated circuit layout; MOS-integrated circuit design for high-speed digital computation and data communication; and software-level testing. The research concentration in Digital Signal Processing and Digital Data Communication includes array signal processing; detection of faults in communication networks; detection of multidimensional signals in the presence of noise; filtering and modulation; intrusion detection, visualization, and security of multicast networks; multisensor data fusion; performance evaluation of local area and wireless networks, broadband networks, and protocols; speaker identification; and voice signal processing. Research in Intelligent Systems and Control includes intelligent tutoring systems, interactive multimedia, neuro-fuzzy control, and robust and optimal control.
Current active research projects in the department include embedded systems and system-on-chip design, intelligent interactive tutoring systems, intrusion detection, multisensor fusion, speaker identification, speech processing, and visualization and fault detection in multicasting networks. Other active areas of research include digital signal processing, heat dissipation problems in microchips, human-computer interaction, intelligent multimedia systems, robust and optimal control, and wireless data networks.
Graduates with the M.S.E.E. are employed in high-tech industries and government laboratories with responsibilities for design, analysis, and applications of electrical engineering principles. Students who complete an M.S.E.E. with a thesis are prepared to enter a doctoral program.
In addition to submitting an application with the required supporting material, other admission requirements include:
1. An undergraduate engineering degree in engineering, from an ABET-accredited or equivalent institution. Students with a strong background in physical sciences, biology, and mathematics may also be considered for admission.
2. At least a 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) undergraduate GPA
3. A minimum score of 450 verbal, 650 quantitative, and 4.5 analytical on the GRE

International Student Requirements:
For applicants whose native language is not English, a minimum score of 213 on the computer-based test, 550 on the paper-based test, and 79 on the internet-based test on the TOEFL, or a 6.5 on the academic version of the IELTS is required.
International applicants must submit an official transcripts and a copy of the degree, diploma, or certificate awarded whereby the academic institution validates completion and conferral. Transcripts from all post-secondary institutions must be submitted for the applicant by the university, even if only one course was taken. Applicants who attended institutions that do not issue complete academic records in English must submit official copies of native language records and literal translations into English prepared by an appropriate university or government official.
