About the Electrical Engineering: Thesis Master’s Program

The master’s degree program prepares students for successful professional careers in electrical engineering based on a broad foundation and specialized technical expertise. Students working toward the M.S.E.E. degree have the option of writing a thesis or taking additional courses. During their first semester, students must declare a thesis or non-thesis option. Later, if desired, they may switch from the thesis to the non-thesis option with the permission of their thesis advisor. However, thesis credit hours they may have earned will not count toward the non-thesis degree. Alternately, students may switch from the non-thesis to the thesis option with permission of the graduate advisor. For more information visit:

Thesis Option

Students must take 30 credit hours (plus 1 credit hour per semester of graduate seminar), including 24 credit hours of coursework and 6 credit hours of thesis. At most 6 of the 24 credit hours may be non-ECE courses and 3 of the 24 credit hours may be ECE individual study courses. Students must complete a thesis, deliver an oral presentation of the results, and pass the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination or a comprehensive oral examination.
