The Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering (MSEE), University of New Haven is designed to provide students and practicing engineers alike with a background in analysis, design, development, or research on electrical or computer engineering in a variety of technical areas.
It enables students to expand and deepen their knowledge beyond the baccalaureate degree and gives them the ability to adapt to ever-changing technological developments. Students with adequate background in electrical or digital and computer systems can complete the MSEE degree by successfully completing a minimum of 30 credits of course and project work.
A plan of study will be devised for each student based on the academic background, professional goals, and interests of the student by the program coordinator. One of the following four focus areas must be followed: communication/signal processing, control systems, digital and computer systems, or power systems. A minimum of 18 credits of course work must be taken from the list of restricted electives for each focus area. Other courses may be taken from EE or other closely related disciplines with the approval of the MSEE program coordinator.
Communications/DSP Area Restricted Electives
Power Systems Area Restricted Electives
Digital and Computer Systems Area Restricted Electives
Control System Area Restricted Electives
The remaining 12 credits beyond the declared focus area may be taken from EE or other closely related disciplines with the approval of the MSEE program coordinator. If EE 690 Research Project or EE 697 Thesis I and EE 698 Thesis II are completed for the project or thesis requirement as listed above, they will also count toward the remaining 12 credits needed to complete the MSEE program.
Students must satisfy either a project or thesis requirement for the MSEE. This requirement can be met by one of three methods:
The following is a list of designated project courses. Completion of any of the following courses satisfies the requirement for project for the MSEE program.
You only need to take one of these language tests:
Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Take IELTS test
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
You need the following GPA score:
Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).
Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).
Each applicant will be evaluated based on the academic performance and the promise of success in the program. Applicants with a GPA of 3.0 or better in a baccalaureate program in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or a closely related discipline from an ABET accredited program or equivalent will have the highest chance of being accepted into the program. Submission of a GRE score is required.
Applicants with strong academic or professional experience but without adequate background necessary for enrolling in some of the required courses may be asked to complete additional courses beyond the 30 credits from the following list depending on the chosen focus area:
• Digital Systems
• Embedded Systems
• Discrete and Continuous Systems I
•Introduction to Communication Systems
• Introduction to Programming/C
• Intermediate Programming/C
• Matrix Theory and its Applications
