  • Course description
    Two post-graduate degree programs are offered by the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology: the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) degree, that requires a thesis and a publication, and the Master of Electrical and Computer Engineering (MECE) degree, that does not require a thesis or a publication, but instead requires 12 credit hours of additional course work.  Both degree programs combine mathematics, physics, engineering, and computer science to meet the demands of the highly volatile field of electrical and computer engineering.  A students plan of study is arranged on an individualized basis through joint agreement between the student, the students advisory committee chairperson, and the students advisory committee.  The students advisory committee must consist of at least (1) an RHIT ECE faculty member serving as the major advisor (in the case of the MSEE degree, this person guides the students thesis research), (2) a second RHIT ECE faculty member, and (3) an RHIT faculty member from outside of the ECE department.  Both degree programs seek to build upon the basic foundations established by the students undergraduate course of study.  The students plan of study may reflect a desire to concentrate on a specialized interest or a desire for a better understanding of the broad underlying theories of the entire profession.

    Special areas of interest within the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department include Communications, Computer Architecture and Microcomputers, Control Systems, Electromagnetics, Electronics, Power Systems, and Signal and Image Processing.

    Master of Science in Electrical Engineering
    Requirements  (51 credit hours):
    36 credit hours of course work as approved by students advisory committee.
    • At least 24 credit hours must be upper level ECE courses (ECE4xx or ECE5xx)
    • At least 24 credit hours must be at the 5xx level (excluding GS501, GS502, and GS503 graduate seminar courses). Thus no more than 12 credit hours of 400-level classes can count toward the MSEE degree.
    • 12 credit hours of thesis work (the Institutes non-thesis option is not permitted for the MSEE degree).
    • 3 credit hours of graduate seminar.
    Successful defense of thesis.
    Acceptance of a technical article for publication and/or for conference presentation with the major professor included as a named author.
    Master of Electrical and Computer Engineering Degree

    Requirements (52 credit hours):
    52 credit hours of course work as approved by students advisory committee.
    • At least 32 credit hours must be upper level ECE courses (ECE4xx or ECE5xx).
    • At least 40 credit hours must be at the 5xx level from any department agreed upon by the students advisory committee.  Thus no more than 12 credit hours of 400-level classes can count toward the MECE degree.
