Our MS in electrical engineering offers students the opportunity to enhance their understanding of specialized electrical systems such as search and rescue robotics, sustainable energy and power systems, unmanned vehicle systems and social emotive robots. Students can work alongside professionals in Colorado's electrical engineering industry to enhance their skills in analysis and design of engineering systems.
We provide a graduate education that emphasizes both multi-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary knowledge. Our faculty creates multi-disciplinary education programs that encourage both depth and breadth, and their research programs incorporate and account for technological trends in research, development and industry. Graduate students join the faculty in conducting cutting-edge basic and applied research in emerging disciplines developing novel and unique solutions to old and new problems and opportunities.
Program graduates have gone on to spearhead technological advancements across the public and private sectors in aerospace, utilities, transportation, military and manufacturing, to name just a few. Others have utilized their degrees to find jobs in management, IT, finance, logistics or technical publishing.
Facilities & Equipment
All laboratories in the department contain state-of-the-art equipment and software to support basic and applied research in hardware and software design, hardware/software interfacing, communications and signal processing, image processing, computer vision and pattern recognition, optoelectronics, power and energy systems, robotics, mechatronic systems, intelligent systems, unmanned systems and other research areas. Small classes support our multi-disciplinary and real-time focus by providing close contact between students and faculty, which allows us to meet students’ individual career goals.
