Electrical Engineering

Do you want to work in a dynamic field like electric vehicles or robotics?

Our Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering can help you get there.

It is a research-intensive, on-campus STEM program with three main objectives:

  • Deepen your technical knowledge to match your personal career goals
  • Prepare you to advance into leadership positions
  • Develop your ability to sustain a life-long career in engineering

The 10-course program includes digital systems design, power electronics for vehicle electrification, robot dynamics and energy storage systems.

Your research can be conducted in modern lab facilities for analog and digital circuits and electronics, electrical machines, power electronics, control systems, high-voltage studies, virtual reality systems and embedded computer systems.

The job forecast is projected to grow 3 percent from 2019 to 2029, about as fast as the average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Electrical engineers design, develop, test and supervise the manufacture of electrical equipment.

Employment growth is expected to be tempered by slow growth or decline in some industries, such as manufacturing and utilities. The median salary for electrical engineers was $98,530 in 2019.
