You will choose one of three high-demand areas of specialization—power, robotics or advanced materials—and mix in a wide variety of elective courses to develop a program that best suits your needs.
Regardless of which specialization you choose, you will enroll in Principles of Engineering Analysis, which covers topics in advanced engineering analysis, including linear algebra, partial differential equations, Fourier series, complex variables and vector calculus with numerical techniques. You will take three courses in your area of specialization, concluding with a thesis or an engineering project.

In addition to the University graduate admission requirements described in the Admissions section of the catalog, the department bases decisions for regular admission on a holistic review of credentials in which the following criteria are used to assess the potential success of each applicant:
Bachelor’s degree from an ABET-accredited program in electrical, computer or mechanical engineering (or closely related field)
Undergraduate institutional GPA
Students who are admitted to the program but do not have a sufficient background for their chosen concentration area may be required to complete additional coursework. All other students can only be admitted by approval of the Graduate Committee. These students will likely have to complete additional coursework as recommended by the Graduate Committee.
Students with a lower Undergraduate GPA (below 3.0) have the option to take and submit scores for one of the following graduate exams to help strengthen their application:
Graduate Record Examination (GRE)
Miller Analogies Test (MAT)
