Electrical Engineering - Specific Requirements

  1. The following four (4) courses are required of all Electrical Engineering MS students:
    • ECE 521 Random Signals and Systems I;
    • ECE 530 Introduction to Advanced Electronics and Optoelectronics;
    • ECE 551 Acoustic and Electromagnetic Waves; and either
      • ECE 571 Digital Communications; or
      • ECE 574 Discrete-Time Signal Processing.
  2. A Depth Requirement: Two (2) courses must be taken, defined by the student’s advisor, in one of the following specialization areas:
    • Acoustics and Signal Processing
    • Devices and Applied Electromagnetics
    • Wireless Communications and Sensor Networks
  3. A Breadth Requirement: Students must also take one (1) graduate course, defined by the student's advisor, from a specialization area different from that selected to satisfy the Depth Requirement.
  4. A Free Elective Requirement:
    • Students in the Thesis Track must also take one (1) additional ECE graduate course.
