Master of Science in Electrical Engineering
Fairleigh Dickinson University's Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree program provides students with the comprehensive skills and knowledge they need to pursue a career in one of the most dynamic areas of modem technology. The graduate program prepares students with a broad scientific knowledge, an aptitude in a variety of modem mathematical techniques and the ability to synthesize. Graduate students receive current information with regard to technological changes. Numerical analysis and computer methods also are used in all courses where relevant.
An FDU education means more than just classroom studies. Students are encouraged to work with faculty on research through independent studies or thesis.
Example of research projects of electrical engineering students are:
