Important Update:

The University of Central Oklahoma physical campus will be closed to all but essential employees through May 31.
Alternative instructional delivery methods will be used for the rest of the spring semester, May intersession courses and summer blocks I and II. Many university services will continue to be available online. For more information, visit the university's COVID-19 website.

The Master of Science in Engineering Physics - Electrical Engineering is designed so that its graduates can enter the industry or government sectors as practicing engineers or pursue research and teaching careers with government and/or academic institutions. The major also provides advanced study in electrical engineering, with emphasis in communications and signal processing, for students who intend to pursue a doctoral degree in electrical engineering or related fields.

Courses You'll Take

The electrical engineering graduate program provides an excellent opportunity for individuals trained in technical disciplines, such as engineering and physics, to further their education. The curriculum consists of a basic core of physics courses and additional courses that support each student's goals. The program is very flexible and meets a variety of needs consistent with the resources of the Department of Engineering and Physics and the University of Central Oklahoma.
