M.S. in Electrical Engineering Telecommunications Specialization

The Department of Electrical Engineering offers a large number of courses in telecommunications. For students interested in this area, the department offers a telecommunications specialization under the M.S.E.E. degree program.

While students in the MSEE program are required to take 12 TCH of core courses in a primary area and can take courses outside the Electrical Engineering Department as minor courses, students in the telecommunications specialization are required to take five core courses related to telecommunications and five elective courses as noted below.


Core Courses

  • EE 7370 Communication and Information Systems
  • EE 7372 Digital Signal Processing
  • EE 7375 Random Processes in Engineering
  • EE 7376 Introduction to Computer Networks
  • EE 8370 Analog and Digital Communications

Elective Courses

Five courses from graduate EE and EETS course offerings in the Electrical Engineering Department, of which no more than three can be EETS courses. However, EETS 7301, EETS 7302, and EETS 8314 cannot be used towards this degree. At least two of the elective EE courses (not including EETS courses) must be at the 8000 level. An M.S. thesis can be used in place of a maximum of 6 hours of 8000 level courses.
