Master's Programs

The Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering offers the following master's degree programs:

Master of Science in Engineering in Electrical Engineering

Interconnections between electrical and systems engineering are creating a fresh vision of knowledge, its uses, and its users. The MSE Program in Electrical Engineering gives students the theoretical foundation and the interdisciplinary skills needed to deal with the new ideas and new applications that are the hallmarks of modern electroscience. A major advantage of our MSE Program allows you to tailor your education to your own interests and goals, from Electromagnetics and Photonics, sensors and MEMS to VLSI and Nanotechnology.

Master of Science in Engineering in Systems Engineering

“Smart” buildings and highways. Environmental monitoring. Sensor networks. Hybrid systems. The MSE Program in Systems Engineering (SE), grounded in the intersection of electrical and systems engineering, is best positioned to give students the in-depth theoretical foundation and interdisciplinary skills required by the growing complexity of technological systems. Our flexible curriculum allows you to tailor your studies to your personal interests and goals, from signal processing, optimization, simulation, control and cybernetics to complex adaptive systems, stochastic processes and decision sciences.

Master of Science in Engineering in Embedded Systems

The Master of Science in Engineering in Embedded Systems (EMBS) is offered jointly by the Departments of Electrical and Systems Engineering and Computer and Information Science. This program trains students in the fundamentals of embedded systems design and implementation.  The EMBS degree program is integrated with the PRECISE Center. The program is ideally suited for students with either computer science or electrical engineering academic background who wish to pursue industrial jobs in automotive, aerospace, defense, and consumer electronics, as well as for practicing engineers in the embedded systems industry who want to gain knowledge in state-of-the-art tools and theories.

Master of Science in Engineering in Robotics

The modern expert in robotics and intelligent systems must be proficient in artificial intelligence, computer vision, control systems, dynamics, machine learning, as well as the design, programming, and prototyping of robotic systems. Such subjects typically reside in different departments, and departmental programs do not offer the flexibility for cross-departmental training. The Robotics Master of Science In Engineering (M.S.E.) program offers a more balanced and flexible academic curriculum that cuts across multiple departments.  Program Information | Admissions Information
