MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering
Ohio State University

Overview

The Electrical and Computer Engineering graduate program offers degrees leading to either a master of science or doctoral degree in electrical and computer engineering and there are many specializations to choose from. The graduate program prepares students for technical leadership roles in industry, academia and government. The training provides students with a fundamental understanding of engineering sciences so that graduates can develop creative and innovative approaches to the world's important engineering problems.

The course work for the master’s program is very flexible to fit the needs of the student. The master’s program has two paths: thesis and non-thesis. The two paths produce identical MS degrees. The M.S. degree is offered in Electrical and Computer Engineering with two options: research track (thesis) and project track (non-thesis). A minimum of 30 Graduate credit hours is required to earn a master’s degree. A student must be registered for at least three (3) graduate credit hours the semester in which graduation is expected.

Courses Required:
Core courses
The Thesis Path requires at least 30 hours of graduate credit with an average grade of 3.0 or better satisfactory thesis represented by at least 1 0 credits of ECE 6999 thesis research credits.

  • At least 20 credits exclusive of thesis research credits (ECE 6999)
  • At least 1 8 credits must be letter-graded (no S/U), of which least 9 credits must be ECE courses
  • At least 6 credits must be ECE 6000 level and above completed at OSU. ECE 6070 does not count as advanced level.
  • A maximum of 9 credits in a related field (engineering, biological sciences, physics, math, chemistry, business, economics, ACCAD, statistics) with advisor approval.
  • 1 credit ECE 7080 Ethics and Professionalism.
  • A maximum of 1 credit of individual studies (ECE 61 93)

The thesis path also requires satisfactory performance on a final oral examination (Master’s
Examination) which is a defense of the thesis, and approval of the thesis document. The
thesis approval and the oral examination are conducted by the student’s M.S. committee,
consisting of the faculty advisor and at least one other faculty member.

The Non-Thesis Project Path requires at least 30 hours of graduate credit with an average grade point average of 3.0 or better.

  • At least 24 credits must be letter-graded (no S/U), of which at least 1 5 credits must be ECE courses, one of which is ECE 6070 (Project Management)
  • At least 6 credits must be ECE 6000 level and above completed at OSU. ECE 6070 (Project Management) does not count as an advanced requirement.
  • ECE 6070 is mandatory within the first two semesters of beginning the graduate program.
  • 1 credit of ECE 7080, Ethics and Professionalism. Mandatory for those admitted autumn 201 5 or after.
  • A maximum of 5 credits of Individual Studies credit (ECE 61 93) is permitted.
  • A maximum of 9 credits are allowed in a related field such as engineering, biological sciences, physics, math, chemistry, business, economics, ACCAD and statistics with advisor approval.

The non-thesis path also requires satisfactory performance on the M.S. Non-Thesis Exam.
The Non-Thesis Exam is evaluated by the M.S. committee, consisting of the student's advisor and at least one other faculty member.

Opportunities

Students in the Electrical Engineering Department and Computer Engineering program have often been attracted to off-campus part-time internships during the academic year and full-time internships during the summer. The Electrical Engineering Department offers students the opportunity to participate in internships and receive academic credit pending review and approval by the faculty. To receive academic credit, the internship must provide students with an experience that is relevant and complementary to their Master's course curriculum. If the internship meets this requirement, the student may be eligible to receive academic credit at the department’s discretion.
