Kansas State University – Online Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering

Program Overview

According to Kansas State University:

“The Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering degree program is designed for working professionals who have already obtained a bachelor’s degree in electrical or computer engineering. Students will choose an emphasis in either electric power systems, open to off-campus students residing in the United States, or communication and networking, open to off-campus students residing both in and out of the United States. All courses needed for the degree are offered online. Students never need to come to campus for any course work and will travel to the Kansas State University campus only once at the end of their program for an oral examination, which is conducted by their supervisory committee.”

Admission requirements According to Kansas State University, to be eligible for the online Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering, students must meet the following requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree in electrical or computer engineering from an ABET-accredited institution with a 3.0 GPA in the final two years or approximately the last 60 credit hours.
  • Background in calculus including differential equations (K-State MATH 240), probability and statistics (K-State STAT 510), circuit analysis (K-State ECE 410 and ECE 511), electronics (K-State ECE 525 and ECE 526), linear systems (K-State ECE 512), control systems (K-State ECE 530), electromagnetics (K-State ECE 557), energy conversion (K-State ECE 581) and microcontrollers (K-State ECE 431). An electrical engineering technology degree covering these topics does not usually qualify a student for admission. Some of these requirements may be waived for students with significant work experience in a relevant field.
  • For candidates not holding a bachelor’s degree in electrical or computer engineering from an ABET-accredited institution, the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is required. Minimum scores (based on the new scale): Verbal – 145; Quantitative – 155; Analytical Writing – 3.0.
  • Students with degrees in physics, mathematics, computer science and other areas also are eligible for acceptance into the program. These students may be required to complete some undergraduate electrical engineering courses prior to full graduate admission.
