Conditional Graduate Student Status:

Students who do not hold a B.S. degree in EE/EEE/ETE/ECE may be admitted as Conditional Graduate Student Status in MS EEE program. However, students with conditional status must petition for the admission to the Regular Graduate Status after completing the Remedial courses. The students will be required to pass Signals and Systems. In addition, they must demonstrate proficiency in three of the five following areas of specialization by successfully completing or challenging the corresponding courses: Electromagnetic, basic course on communication, electronics, control systems and, electrical machines or energy conversion. In some cases, the EEE Graduate Admission Committee may require additional remedial classes.

    • Minimum six (6) graduate courses (18 Credit hours) must be from three (3) different Technical Interest Areas (TIAs), with a minimum of two courses (6 Credit Hours) from each of these three
    • Minimum three (4) graduate courses (12 Credit hours) from any of the listed TIAs (possibly used to increase student’s depth/breadth in a particular area of interest)
  • Special Topic / Project course:  Minimum two (6  credit hours ) courses among the following three courses:

EEE 596: Special Topic I (Advances in Electrical Engineering I)
EEE 597: Special Topic II (Advances in Electrical Engineering II)
EEE 598: Graduate Project

Guidelines of these special courses are available through the Chairman of EECS Curriculum Committee.

 General Rule:

The students must secure a CGPA of 2.75 for the award of the MS-EEE & MS-ENG degree both in thesis and non-thesis options. A student must complete the required number of credits with a minimum CGPA of 2.75 on a 4 point scale to earn the degree. To continue in the program a student must maintain a minimum CGPA of 2.75 at all levels of academic advancement.
