The accelerated undergraduate/graduate program in Electrical Engineering allows highly qualified undergraduate majors in Electrical Engineering to begin taking graduate-level courses that will count toward their master’s degree while completing their baccalaureate degree program.
Students in the Electrical Engineering degree programs receive a broad background in areas such as communications, controls/robotics, digital signal processing, electromagnetics, power electronics and electronics, electro-optics/photonics, solid state and microelectronics while specializing in a research area of their interest.
Research interests of the Electrical Engineering faculty include antennas, microwave and millimeter circuits and devices, communication systems, digital signal/image processing, power electronics, electronic circuits, IFF devices, electromagnetic theory, radar and microwave remote sensing, speech processing, VLSI design, spread spectrum systems, SAW and ACT devices, spectral estimation, solid state device modeling and computer-aided design (CAD) techniques, communication networks, integrated services digital networks, neural networks, systems and controls, robotics, robust control, computer control, microelectronics, semiconductors, thin films, power system stability, bipolar device modeling, solid state lasers, optical propagation, fiber optics, optical signal processing, laser-induced damage, optical testing, diffractive optics, phase conjunction, infrared detectors, Fourier optics, lens design, and nonlinear optics.
This program has potential ties to professional licensure or certification in the field. For more information on how this program may prepare you in that regard, please visit https://apq.ucf.edu/files/Licensure-Disclosure-CECS-Electrical-Engineering-MS-June2020.pdf.
For information on general UCF graduate admissions requirements that apply to all prospective students, please visit the Admissions section of the Graduate Catalog. Applicants must apply online. All requested materials must be submitted by the established deadline.
The Accelerated BS to MS program in Electrical Engineering allows highly qualified University of Central Florida undergraduate majors in Electrical Engineering to begin taking graduate level courses that will count toward their master’s degree while completing their baccalaureate degree program. Students apply for admission to the accelerated program in either their junior year or senior year. If the student has a degree in the discipline, but were not previously part of this accelerated program, then they should apply to the Electrical Engineering MS program without a track selection. Additional information about this track may be located at: http://www.cecs.ucf.edu/current-students/bs-ms-program.
In addition to the general UCF graduate admission requirements , applicants to this program must provide:
- One official transcript (in a sealed envelope) from each college/university attended.
- A bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering or a related discipline.
- GRE is not required for MSEE applicants with a BS degree in EE or CpE and with a minor in any of following disciplines of EE, CpE or CS.
- Two letters of recommendation.
- Statement of educational, research, and professional career objectives.
- Applicants applying to this program who have attended a college/university outside the United States must provide a course-by-course credential evaluation with GPA calculation. Credential evaluations are accepted from World Education Services (WES) or Josef Silny and Associates, Inc. only.
Faculty members may choose to conduct face-to-face or telephone interviews before accepting applicants into their research program.
Additional courses may also be required to correct any course deficiencies. Students should contact the graduate program director for further information.
Graduate students may receive financial assistance through fellowships, assistantships, tuition support, or loans. For more information, see the College of Graduate Studies Funding website, which describes the types of financial assistance available at UCF and provides general guidance in planning your graduate finances. The Financial Information section of the Graduate Catalog is another key resource.
