The Master of Engineering in Electrical Engineering requires the student to successfully complete a minimum of 30 semester credit hours of specific coursework.
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.
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.
Embedded systems design and development. High-level design tools, system-level design and designing for testability will be emphasized.
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.
Student works under the direction of a faculty member to complete the MEng capstone project.
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.
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.
Yes. Many of our students qualify for some type of financial aid.
Sources of aid:
Yes. The vast majority of our students work throughout their time in their academic program. It is important to assess course load and financial aid to understand how to balance school and working.
If possible, students may cut down on their work hours during a clinical portion of a program.
Most of our programs do not require onsite visits, but there are a couple of exceptions.
If you are interested in pursuing the Master of Science in Nursing-Nurse Midwifery, you will have two skills intensives that take place on campus. The Post-Master’s Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program has one onsite visit that occurs during the first semester.
The University of Cincinnati is one of the first institutions to offer online courses. Innovation in education is at the forefront of what we do. We have expanded the convenience and quality of our online learning to online degree programs. Today, we offer nearly 100 degrees from undergraduate to doctoral programs.
