The master of science degree in electrical engineering allows students to customize their course work while working closely with electrical engineering faculty in a contemporary, applied research area. Upon matriculation into the program, students formulate a plan of study in consultation with an adviser. All students with graduate standing are expected to attend the Electrical Engineering Graduate Seminar for every quarter they are on campus. The MS degree is awarded upon the successful completion of a minimum of 45 quarter credit hours, including either a 9 quarter credit hour thesis or a 5 quarter credit hour graduate paper.
