Master of Science (Electrical Engineering)
The purpose of the MS program in Electrical Engineering is to attain theoretical and practical depth in one of the areas of interest.The MS(EE) program is structured in such a way as to enhance the student's critical thinking and intuitive abilities using a combination of highly specialized courses and expert supervision. The program aims to produce graduates who will have the abilities and skills to be employed as practicing engineers in fields such as design, research, development, testing, and manufacturing, as well as assuming positions of leadership and responsibility within organizations.
Three options: 6-credit hour Thesis or 3 credit hour Project with one additional elective or MS by course work.
Typical course load in a semester is four courses. However, NUCES staff cannot register for more than two courses in a semester.Award of Degree
