Electrical Engineering M.Eng. (Hartford)


Return to: Schools & Departments

The Rensselaer at Hartford master’s program in Electrical Engineering allows students to increase their competence in a number of Electrical Engineering subjects, particularly in Digital Communications and Signal Processing, Control Systems, and Communication Networks.

Admission Requirements

1.       Students who have received a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering from an accredited institution, a GPA in the upper quartile, and some work experience in a high-technology environment.

2.       Students with a B.S. degree in another engineering discipline, mathematics, or physics may be admitted subject to fulfillment of the following Electrical Engineering Background Requirements.

Electrical Engineering Background Requirements

  • Advanced Mathematics (i.e. Complex Variables, Laplace Transforms, Fourier Analysis, Probability) (one term)
  • Electric Circuits (one term)
  • Electronic Circuits (two terms)
  • Signals and Systems (one term)
  • Digital Logic (one term)
  • Technical Design Elective (e.g., Communications Systems, Control Systems Engineering, Computer Networks) (one term)

Students lacking any of the above courses must consult with their adviser to devise a plan for corrective action.
