MS in Electrical Engineering
Stanford University


The master's degree program in Electrical Engineering provides advanced preparation for
professional practice through a highly customizable, coursework-based curriculum. It provides
advanced preparation for professional practice or for teaching at the junior college level.
The profession of electrical engineering demands a strong foundation in physical science and
mathematics, a broad knowledge of engineering techniques, and an understanding of the relation between technology and society.

Courses required:
The department does not prescribe specific courses to be taken but it does provide guidelines for acceptable programs. Each student, with the help of a faculty advisor, prepares an individual program of study. There is no thesis requirement.

Academic Pre-Requisites

  • a bachelor’s degree from a U.S. college or university accredited by a regional accrediting
    association (applicants outside the U.S. must hold the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor’s degree from a college or university of recognized standing)
  • bachelor's degree in electrical engineering is not strictly required.
  • GPA & Test Scores (As a guideline, successful applicants typically score in the 90th percentile or higher on the quantitative section of the GRE and earn undergraduate cumulative GPAs among the top of their class).
  • TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) scores are required of all applicants whose first language is not English (applicants whose scores fall below Stanford's minimum TOEFL requirements will still be considered admission; if admitted, Stanford may require these students to take a placement exam and/or classes to satisfy the University's English proficiency requirement).

Curricula at Stanford are planned to offer the breadth of education and depth of training necessary for leadership in the profession. To engage in this profession with competence, four years of undergraduate study and at least one year of postgraduate study are recommended. For those who plan to work in highly technical development or fundamental research, additional graduate study is desirable.

Three regular courses (8-1 0 units) constitute a full-time workload. The student's advisor should be consulted for further guidance on this and other course selection questions. The M.S. degree is an advanced degree in electrical engineering awarded entirely on the basis of course work, the program should contain a substantial amount of advanced electrical engineering course work. Every student in the MS degree program must submit a Program Proposal form prior to the end of the first quarter of enrollment (second quarter for part-time Honors Cooperative Program students). The Program Proposal must be approved by the student's faculty advisor and be submitted to the EE Degree Progress Officer by the stated deadline. Students who do not submit a Program Proposal on time will have an enrollment hold placed on their record until they submit an acceptable proposal actions.
