Electrical Engineering


Interconnections between electrical and systems engineering are creating a fresh vision of knowledge, its uses, and its users. The MSE Program in Electrical Engineering gives students the theoretical foundation and the interdisciplinary skills needed to deal with the new ideas and new applications that are the hallmarks of modern electroscience. A major advantage of our MSE Program allows you to tailor your education to your own interests and goals, from Electromagnetics and Photonics, sensors and MEMS to VLSI and Nanotechnology.

Our graduates can be found in major companies such as Alcate/Lucent or pursuing doctoral degrees.
