To satisfy the requirements for an MS in Electrophysics, you must complete 30 credits, as described below, and maintain a GPA equal to or greater than 3.0 in all graduate courses. In addition, a GPA of 3.0 is required in courses in Group 1 and Group 2, as indicated below.
You should arrange a complete course of study, including the choice of the course sequences, in consultation with an adviser. You can consult the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering’s Graduate Student Manual for detailed rules and procedures, including student status, transfer credits, recommended electives, 2-course sequences, current areas of research, and disqualification for low grades.
Select 3 courses from the following:
EL 5513 Electro-Optics I, Credits: 3.00
EL 5733 Rf and Microwave Systems Engineering, Credits: 3.00
EL 5753 Introduction to Plasma Engineering, Credits: 3.00
EL 6113 Signals, Systems and Transforms, Credits: 3.00
EL 6583 Fiber Optic Communications, Credits: 3.00
EL 6713 Electromagnetic Theory and Applications, Credits: 3.00
You must complete 2 sequences that each contain 2 courses for a total of 6-12 credits. One course in each sequence may be a core course in Group 1. Both of these sequences must be in electrical engineering. Approved course sequences for the program are detailed in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Graduate Student Manual.
This group consists of approved electives that may include up to 6 credits of courses offered by any science or engineering program.
At least 24 credits you complete must be EL prefixed courses. A 3-credit course in other science or engineering disciplines may substitute for an EL course with approval by an ECE graduate adviser. Remaining credits can be from any graduate courses in science or engineering.
A master’s thesis (EL997x, 6 credits) or an MS project (EL9953 or EL9963, 3 credits each) or a reading course (EL9933 or EL9943, 3 credits each) may be included as part of the elective courses in Group 3.
Oral defense of the master’s thesis with at least 3 professors in attendance is required. The total credits for thesis, projects, and readings should not exceed 9 credits within the 30 credits required for the MS degree. At most 3 credits can be taken for reading.
