Admission Requirements

Admission to these programs is contingent upon admission to the Graduate School. All applicants whose B.S. degree is not from an ABET-accredited college or university are required to submit additional pertinent information, including results of the general test of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), publications, and/or inventions.

Students with B.S. degrees from selected science and engineering undergraduate programs not specifically related to this discipline may be admitted into the master's program after completing a sequence of undergraduate courses designed to prepare them for the graduate curriculum.

In the areas of electrical engineering and computer engineering the Master of Science degree is offered by this department under the following options:

Plan A: Thirty-two credits including an eight credit thesis.

Plan C: Thirty-two credits of course work.

For either plan, students may choose from courses in one or more areas of specialization within the ECE curriculum.  Detailed degree requirements, academic policies, and the course curriculum may be found at

All course work must be completed in accordance with the regulations of the Graduate School and the College of Engineering.

ECE AGRADE Program (Accelerated Graduate Enrollment)

Outstanding undergraduates in the ECE department who meet eligibility criteria may enroll in the ECE AGRADE program.  This program allows students to count up to 16 credits towards both the B.S. and M.S. degrees, enabling students to complete the B.S. and M.S. degrees within 5 years of full-time study.  More information about eligibility, degree requirements, course selections, and policies may be found at
