The master’s degrees offered by the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering are structured to develop in the student a strong theoretical base for either engineering practice or research. The MSE degree requires the successful completion of 10 course units. Electrical engineers complete at least six courses in electrical engineering or telecommunications and take up to four electives. Systems engineers take four core courses and are required to choose a focus for the remaining six courses. Students with special interests not treated by the formal curriculum may pursue faculty-supervised independent study for up to one course unit.
Students in these programs find themselves immersed in an environment of unparalleled teaching excellence and state-of-the-art research facilities, such as the renowned General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception (GRASP) Laboratory; The Ackoff Center for Advancement of Systems Approaches; The Distributed Systems Laboratory; The Wolf Nanofabrication Laboratory; and The Multimedia And Networking Laboratory.
