Educational Objectives

The Master of Science Programs in Electrical and Computer Engineering (thesis and non-thesis options) is designed to prepare a select group of students for successful professional careers in the industry with specialized technical expertise as well as for further graduate studies in doctoral degree programs. Its educational objectives are the following.

  1. 1.Provides a scientific approach to increase student’s understanding and problem solving abilities with a special emphasis on performing independent theoretical and applied research.
  2. 2.Provides an adequate level of specialization in the following major areas: Integrated Circuits and Computer Systems, Electromagnetics and RF Systems, Communications and Signal Processing, Power and Control Systems and Renewable Energy.
  3. 3.Provides graduates with the required background to synthesize technical issues in the solution of electrical and computer engineering problems.

Admission Requirements

Admission to the MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering program is subject to the graduate admission requirements of the university as stated in the catalog under “Graduate Admission”. In addition, the following requirements are to be met:

  1. 1.Bachelor of Engineering degree in Electrical/Computer engineering or its equivalent from a recognized university (holders of BS degrees in engineering will have to take a set of remedial courses to be specified on a case by case basis in order to meet the total number of credits required);
  2. 2.Cumulative GPA of 3.0 minimum (or its equivalent from a recognized faculty of engineering);
  3. 3. GRE Scores
  4. 4.Approval of the Faculty Graduate Committee

Furthermore, applicants should be able to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. All English requirements, as stated in the catalog under “Graduate Admission”, are to be fulfilled.

 

Graduation Requirements

The program leads to the degree of Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering awarded once the following requirements are fulfilled:

  1. 1.The candidate must complete a total of 30 credits with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0/4.0. All courses are to be passed with a minimum of B grade as per rules and regulations concerning graduate studies at NDU. Failed courses may be repeated once provided that the grade on the failed course is equal to D or higher. Failing a course with an F grade means an automatic exclusion from the program.
  2. 2. Holders of a bachelor of engineering in electrical/computer engineering (5-year program leading to the degree of BE) from a recognized university may apply to transfer a maximum of twelve credits from their undergraduate upper level courses equivalent to 500-level electrical engineering courses at NDU. Only courses with a B grade can be considered for transfer.
  3. 3. The candidate must attend a series of 0-carrying credit seminars as recommended by the Graduate Committee of the Faculty. The course grading is based on attendance and is pass or fail.
  4. 4.The residency requirements and maximum load per semester are as per rules and regulations for graduate programs at Notre Dame University-Louaize.
