Electrical Engineering Graduate Programs - College of Engineering & Natural Sciences

Electrical and computer engineering involves researching, developing and testing electronic and computer components. Engineers study computing processes, circuit boards, memory devices, networks and routers while examining new frontiers in computer hardware. The electrical and computer engineering field is marked by its advancements in evolving areas of technology such as optics, electric power systems and microelectronics.

Overview

Students complete a core electrical engineering curriculum with an emphasis on computer science while allowing room for electives in TU’s reputable humanities-based programs. A strong background in mathematics and physics is required along with interests in bioengineering, electromagnetic fields and circuit systems. ­

The master of engineering (M.E.) focuses on curriculum and coursework more than research and can be completed in less time than the M.S.E. option.

The master of science in engineering (M.S.E.) in electrical engineering educates students in professional engineering and research. This graduate option is an opportunity for students to enhance their professional skills and abilities with continued study in the electrical systems that fuel our lives. A master’s degree qualifies professionals for additional responsibilities in the workplace and inspires new solutions for the world’s engineering challenges. This option is ideal for students who plan to eventually pursue a doctoral degree.
