In addition to the general admissions requirements of the Graduate School, students applying for admission to the Electrical Engineering program are required to submit GRE scores to aid the department in the evaluation process. There is no specific minimum GRE score required for acceptance. The submitted scores can be no older than five years old.
The requirements for the M.S. degree with a major in Engineering: Electrical are listed below. Each student’s program of study will be developed by the student’s committee as an individualized program and will be constructed in accordance with sound academic practices to provide the kind of study most suitable to the student’s needs. The proposed program must be submitted on a Program of Study form to The Graduate School office for approval during the first semester of coursework. It is that program, rather than the example which follows, which will constitute the student’s graduation requirements. Candidacy for the degree is typically filed in the semester prior to the student’s anticipated graduation semester.

The general guidelines for the M.S. degree in engineering are as follows:

Area I Mathematics or Engineering Analysis 3-6 hrs
Area II Approved Electives in Mathematics, Science, Engineering 6-9 hrs
Area III Engineering Concentration 12-16 hrs
Area IV Thesis or Special Project and/or Internship 6 hrs
