The Institute’s flexible graduate programs prepare you for creative and challenging work in research and development, advanced engineering design, university instruction, and many others. They provide advanced training and specialization in a broad range of areas in electrical and electronics engineering and its allied fields to prepare students to solve complex technological problems and to contribute new knowledge to the field. Our graduate programs provide the country with a pool of highly qualified electrical and electronics engineers who carry out creative and challenging work in research, development, design, technology management and university instruction.
The Master of Science (MS) in Electrical Engineering is a research-oriented degree program targeted primarily at academics and researchers. Prospective students in this program intend to undertake research towards enhancing the delivery of higher education in academic institutions or the development of new technology in government and industry research institutions. MS EE students undergo coursework and get trained in research through immersion in research laboratories, and write a thesis documenting the findings and contributions from their research work.
The Master of Engineering (ME) in Electrical Engineering offers an advanced professional degree targeted primarily at industry practitioners and professionals. Prospective students in this program seek to enhance their skills and knowledge for career advancement and towards supporting higher value engineering activities in their respective institutions. As such, the program supports the development of local engineering industry by enhancing the capability of its workforce to undertake higher value engineering work. ME EE students may flexibly tailor their coursework based on their learning or professional objectives. They may opt to engage in research work, directed study, or project work within their program of study.
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)/ Doctor of Engineering (DE) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering programs produce experts capable of conducting independent investigation and study, producing original contributions to the fundamental knowledge in the field (PhD EEE), or solving engineering problems of substance and developing solutions in a creative and distinguished manner (DE EEE). Doctoral students undergo an intensive program of study and research in exciting, cutting-edge areas of technology, and write a dissertation documenting their journey and findings from their investigation. Although the typical entrance credential for admission into the doctoral programs is a master’s degree in a relevant field, admission is also possible for exceptional candidates who possess a relevant bachelor’s degree.
