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.
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.
Areas of Specialization
Students must include in their Plan of Study a sequence of three 6000- (or 7000-) level courses in at least one of the following areas of specialization:
- Digital Communications and Signal Processing
- Control Systems
- Communication Networks
