Academic Catalog

Electric-drive Vehicle Engineering (M.S.)

Admission Requirements

Admission to this program is contingent upon admission to the Graduate School for requirements. Additionally, the Grade Point Average required for regular admission to M.S. degree program is 3.0 or above. Qualified admission (2.5 - 3.0) is possible if an applicant has significant relevant professional experience. The program will admit students with Bachelor's degrees or the equivalent in engineering from an accredited college or university. Students with mathematics-based science degrees will be considered for admission on a case-by-case basis. No other specific admission requirements are needed, however, letters of recommendation, a statement of objectives, and Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores are encouraged to aid the admission evaluation process.

Program Requirements

A minimum grade point average of 3.00 is required for the M.S. in Electric-drive Vehicle Engineering. A maximum of one course in which a "C" has been received may be used to meet graduation requirements, provided the "C" is offset by equivalent credits of "A" to maintain the required 3.00 average.

This Master of Science degree is offered under the following options:

Plan A: Thirty credits, including a six-credit thesis.

Plan C: Thirty credits of course work in an approved EVE Plan of Work.

Both options require at least twelve credits of any Electric-drive Vehicle Engineering (EVE) courses, including two core courses:

EVE 5110Fundamentals of Electric-drive Vehicle Engineering3
or EVE 5115 Fundamentals of Electric-drive Vehicle Modeling
EVE 5120Fundamentals of Battery Systems for Electric and Hybrid Vehicles4

Requirements for both options include at least six credits of 7000-level or higher course work. The 7000-level or higher course requirements can be satisfied through EVE courses, directed studies (EVE 7990), industry internship ( EVE 7991), or thesis credits (EVE 8999) of EVE-related projects, or approved 7000-level or higher classes from other departments in the College of Engineering.
