Electrical Engineering

Emphasis areas at all levels in circuits and electronics, power and energy, communications and signal processing, controls and systems, electromagnetics, optics and devices, and computer engineering.

Electrical engineers are involved in channeling natural resources into uses for society such as heating, lighting, home appliances, consumer products, computing, sensing, control, and communication. They contribute to systems and devices for power, instrumentation, measurement, communication, management, manufacturing, transportation, etc. They are primarily concerned with the processes of generation, transmission, transformation, control, and utilization of energy or information.

Students who are interested in electrical engineering begin in the foundational engineering and computing program, thus obtaining fundamental skills and an overview of the various degree programs at Missouri S&T, before entering the main program. They commit to a given degree program after exposure to the different career options. Once in the program, students gain knowledge in the main areas of electrical engineering, learn to use hardware and software tools in numerous laboratories, and apply engineering concepts in both freshman and capstone design experiences. Educational options include dual major programs (such as electrical and computer engineering degrees), minor programs, emphasis areas, and honors activities (such as the Honors Scholar Program in electrical engineering). They may supplement their education with participation in design competitions, professional societies, work internships, research experiences, etc.

The curriculum exposes students to the breadth of electrical engineering and allows them to pursue electives in several areas or to emphasize a specialty. The areas are defined as circuits and electronics, power and energy, communications and signal processing, controls and systems, electromagnetics, optic and devices, and computer engineering.

In circuits and electronics, courses provide study of basic electrical devices – energy sources, resistors, inductors, capacitors, diodes, and transistors – and their interconnection in operational networks. Circuits design and analysis techniques are covered with both analog and digital applications.

In power and energy, courses emphasize the design and applications of motors, generators, transformers, distribution systems, high-voltage devices, and power electronics.

In communications and signal processing, courses include concepts required for the characterization and manipulation of information-bearing signals, modulation systems, wireless networks, image processing, and detection hardware.

In controls and systems, courses emphasize the design and application of circuits and systems to automatically monitor and regulate devices, machines, and processes. Advanced technologies using digital control, intelligent processing, neural networks, and programmable logic controllers are included.

In electromagnetics, courses provide instruction in the interaction, propagation, and transmission of high-frequency waves and signals through space and in conductors. Topics include grounding and shielding, antennas, microwaves, and systems.

In optics and devices, courses emphasize solid-state materials, electronic devices, and optoelectronics. Applications are microfabrication, telecommunications, computing, instrumentation, lasers and fiber optics, nanotechnologies, sensing, and smart technologies.

In computer engineering, courses are offered in computers and architecture, integrated circuits and logic design, embedded computer systems, computational intelligence, networks and software engineering, and software security and reliability.

The electrical engineering program and the related computer engineering program are administered in the same department. Degree programs for B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. are offered. The classrooms and laboratories are located in Emerson Electric Company Hall. Additional research activities are being conducted in various research centers on campus. The department supports chapters for the following student groups: the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers; IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu, the Electrical and Computer Engineering Honor Society; and the Amateur Radio Club. Various faculty and students participate in other campus organizations and are active in professional societies, design competitions, and technical conferences.

Accelerated BS/MS Program Option for EE and CpE Majors

Electrical engineering or computer engineering undergraduates in ECE at Missouri S&T may opt to apply for an accelerated BS/MS ECE program where a student can achieve both degrees faster than if pursuing the degrees separately.  The degrees may be BS EE and MS EE, BS CpE and MS CpE, BS EE and MS CpE, or BS CpE and MS EE.  The benefits of the program for admitted students are:

  • Undergraduate and graduate courses may be chosen with greater flexibility,
  • Up to nine hours of 5000-level or above ECE coursework may apply to both the BS and MS requirements,
  • The classes taken for shared BS/MS credit may be taken at the lower undergraduate tuition rate,
  • The GRE is not required for admission,
  • Other graduate credit courses may be taken anytime after entering the program, and
  • Work on a thesis project may begin before the BS requirements are completed.

To be eligible for the accelerated BS/MS ECE program, an EE or CpE undergraduate must be at or beyond the junior level with a minimum of 60 credit hours and must have completed 18 credit hours of EE and/or CpE courses at Missouri S&T with at least a 3.50 GPA in the ECE courses.  To be admitted, the student must complete the program application and must have the recommendation of an ECE faculty member who agrees to serve as the graduate thesis advisor.  No other MS degree requirements are changed. The MS degree must be for the thesis option.  The program may be combined with existing honors research and emphasis area options.  Admitted students will have both undergraduate and graduate records in the Registrar’s Office.

The Accelerated program application must be completed within one semester after the shared-credit courses are completed.  Courses taken for shared credit will be identified on the application form and on Graduate Form 1, which is submitted after the student enters the graduate program. The nine hours of shared-credit coursework will be taken as undergraduate credit, and may not be undergraduate research, special problems, or transfer courses (a co-listed course can only apply for these undergraduate requirements if it is under an EE or CpE registration.  Note that the choice of EE or CpE registration may affect how a course can apply within an MS program.)   An additional nine credit hours of coursework for graduate credit (beyond the shared BS/MS credits) can be taken while in the undergraduate program by applying for dual undergraduate/graduate enrollment. Taking additional courses for graduate credit will require formal application to the graduate program. Acceptance to the MS degree program from the Accelerated program is automatic so long as the student meets ECE graduate student academic performance requirements. To remain in the Accelerated program, the student must maintain good standing within the undergraduate EE or CpE program and must maintain continuous enrollment at Missouri S&T.  If the student exits the program before completion of the MS degree requirements or fails to maintain continuous enrollment at Missouri S&T, the shared-credit courses may not apply toward graduate requirements in the event of future readmission. 

The student is responsible for checking on how dual-enrollment status and graduate coursework will affect scholarships and other financial aid.  Once you become a graduate student, you are not eligible for Federal Pell Grants, though are still eligible for Federal Financial Aid and will be eligible for fellowships and teaching/research assistantships. International students should check with international affairs during completion of an accelerated BS/MS to ensure immigration status will be maintained throughout the program.
