Graduate Degree Programs

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering

Program Description:
Missouri S&T's electrical engineering graduate program prepares students to provide leadership in the recognition and solution of society’s problems in the area of electrical engineering. 

Most graduate programs in electrical engineering include some specialization in one or more of the following emphasis areas.

  • Circuits - Topics include network analysis and synthesis, computer-aided circuit design, communications circuits, and linear and nonlinear electronic circuits.
  • Communications and Signal Processing - Topics include signal design, coding, modulation, detection, and filtering for both analog and digital systems.
  • Computer Engineering - Computer engineering can be an emphasis area in electrical engineering
  • Control Systems Technology -  Emphasizes linear and nonlinear systems, digital control, process control system simulation, optimal control and estimation, robust control, neural networks and fuzzy logic based control systems, and control of smart structures.
  • Electromagnetics - Topics include the generation, propagation, and detection of electromagnetic fields and waves. Optical topics include applications of fiber optics, optical processing, optical computing, and smart sensing. 
  • Electronics - Topics include circuits and networks containing active devices.
  • Power - Topics include application of computer methods to power system analysis and control, power system relaying and protection, power quality load management, finite inertia power systems (such as those on ships, hybrid electric vehicles, and spacecraft), and electromechanical energy conversion devices (such as rotating machinery, power electronic converters, and electric drive systems).

Thesis and non-thesis options available. This program requires 30 credit hours of coursework for both non-thesis and thesis, with 6 hours of research required for the thesis.

Graduate Certificates
Graduate certificate programs are a great way to start earning college credit toward a graduate degree. The GRE is not required to enter a certificate program. If you complete a certificate program with a grade of B or better in all four courses, you may be accepted into the corresponding master's degree program without taking the GRE*.
