curriculum icon Curriculum at a Glance

The Master of Engineering in Electrical Engineering requires the student to successfully complete a minimum of 30 semester credit hours of specific coursework.

Electromagnetic Energy Conversion

Introduction to methods for analysis of electromagnetic devices under transient and repetitive steady-state conditions in electric energy conversion systems.

Engineering Economic Analysis

In this course students examines the principles and techniques for making decisions between various engineering alternatives. The techniques of benefit-cost, rate-of-return, and net present value will be examined. Also, the topics of inflation and taxes and their impact on decision making is explored.

Trusted Embedded Systems

Embedded systems, which enable the "Internet of Things," are becoming more and more common in consumer products, medical devices, automobiles, airplanes, transportation systems, defense systems, financial systems, and manufacturing. It is imperative that these systems be reliable, secure, and appropriately responsive to the task at hand. In this course the focus is on design anddevelopment techniques and tools for ensuring thatthe embedded systems of today and of the future will meet all the stringent requirements placed upon them.

Intelligent Systems Theory

This is a course for students in their first or second year of their graduate studies and for undergraduate students in the senior year. This course introduces and analyzes intelligent systems used in flexible manufacturing systems. The coursework includes expert systems, fuzzy logic, neural networks and applications with intelligent systems in manufacturing and material handling. The student's understanding gained from this course will be evaluated by a midterm and final exams, homework assignments and a course project.

Advanced Microsystems 1

Examination of microcontrollers and their uses. Understanding of microcontroller architectures, register sets, types of memory and interfacing to standard electronic peripherals. Development of system integration skills including printed circuit board design and modular hardware/software development.

  • Prerequisite: To take this course you must have taken the following course – EECE4038C (minimum grade C/Pass) – and be enrolled in the following program – 20MAS.

Advanced Microsystems 2

Extends basic microcontroller design concepts toward the implementation of systems with common electronic interfaces. Explores the generation of video signal, management of disk memory systems and the conversion from digital music file formats to an analog signal suitable for play though standard headphones. Demonstration of advanced microcontroller proficiency through the design and implementation of functional systems from general problem statements.

  • Prerequisite: To take this course you must have taken the following course – EECE6039C (minimum grade C/Pass) and be enrolled in the following program – 20MAS.

Effectiveness in Technical Organizations

This course examines the non-technical factors that enable engineers and other technical professionals to maximize their contribution to organizational effectiveness. The course covers communication processes and impediments to effective communication including written communication, presentations, and meeting facilitation. Models of motivation as regards technical professionals are presented and their application to the work setting are examined. Leadership models and the interaction of leaders and followers are also presented. Conflict management and appropriate methods for constructively dealing with this are discussed. Students develop personal development plans for continued learning and performance improvement.

Contemporary Instrumentation and Automation

Instrumented processes with defined-accuracy multisource decision and multivariable control forcomplex process systems. Contemporary case studies.

Embedded Systems 1

Embedded systems design and development. High-level design tools, system-level design and designing for testability will be emphasized.

  • Prerequisite: To take this course you must be enrolled in the following program – 20MAS.

Embedded Systems 2

Reliability, safety and security for embedded systems. Design, implementation and testing of an embedded systems project to meet specific safety and/or security constraints derived from industry and/or government standards.

  • Prerequisite: To take this course you must have taken the following course – EECE6013C (minimum grade C/Pass) and be enrolled in the following Program 20MAS.

MEng Capstone

Student works under the direction of a faculty member to complete the MEng capstone project.

Management of Innovation

The Management of Innovation course is a comprehensive review of the concepts of imagination, creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship. This practical course focuses on the twelve elements of innovation and the twelve innovation competencies: innovative behaviors, thinking, problem-solving, knowledge, creative insights, culture building, innovation, entrepreneurship, strategy, leadership, ecosystems, and technology accelerators.  This online course is designed for student-centered learning and integrates personalization, challenge-based learning teams that develop a meaningful value-added prototype, and student-produced evidence-based research mini-documentary videos.

Intelligent Industrial Controllers

Study the current technology and use of intelligent industrial controllers utilized in electric energy, manufacturing, material handling/processing, mass transit, and other industrial plants. Selection and programming of Programmable Automation Controllers (PACs), Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), and Distributed Control Systems (DACs) are covered.
