M.Sc. / M.Eng. in Electrical & Electronic Engineering

Course Duration

The course duration should be minimum 5 semesters for a full time student. In addition to completing the course work this minimum period is necessary to meet the requirements of graduate project mentioned in EEE 598 and graduate thesis mentioned in EEE 599. A student will have to do research work, write thesis, prepare a presentation, appear in an oral examination, present his work and present his work before an examination committee, must satisfy the examiners. A full time student must register for a minimum of 9 credit hours. A part time student may register for a maximum of 6 credit hours of course in any semester.

Degree Requirements

To obtain an M. Sc. / M. Engg. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE), the students must complete a minimum of 36 credit hours with a minimum CGPA of 2.75 out of 4 scale. Students pursuing M. Sc. in EEE are required to take a total of 6 (3 core and 3 elective) courses of 18 credit hours along with a thesis of 18 credit hours. Students pursuing M.Engg. in EEE are required to take a total of 10 (5 core and 5 elective) courses of 30 credit hours along with a project of 6 credit hours. A student may also be required to take prerequisite and supplementary non-credit courses to improve study skills, presentation and communication skills. The breakdown of the credits for both the streams is listed bellow.
