The Department provides opportunities for post-baccalaureate study toward the Master of Science in Engineering with the electrical and computer engineering option. These opportunities serve the practicing engineer as well as the student who wants to pursue advanced graduate study and research. Thesis, non-thesis, and management plans are available.
Areas of study include control systems, digital systems, computer engineering, communications, computer-aided design, device and circuit modeling, solid-state devices, sensors, power systems, power electronics, electromagnetic fields, electromechanical systems, and system analysis and design. The student is encouraged to interact with the faculty to explore these or other opportunities.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering requires an advisor for each graduate student. Upon acceptance for graduate study, an advisor is assigned initially by the Graduate School.
It is the responsibility of the student to initiate contact with his/her advisor, and this should be done as soon as possible before registering for the first time and for course registrations each semester. Each graduate student is expected to complete a department (option) study plan to be signed by the student, academic advisor, and the Department Graduate Coordinator. This form must be completed during the first semester of the student's program. Courses taken without advisor permission may not fulfill degree requirements. The student may seek another advisor in case of interest changes. Likewise the student-advisor relationship may be terminated at the advisor's discretion. The Department Graduate Coordinator is available to discuss these and other issues as appropriate.
Degree requirements are described under the program description for the Master of Science in Engineering. The Department's three plans of study leading to a Master of Science in Engineering are designed to accommodate the needs of our graduate students.
A graduate student transfering from another accredited institution has the opportunity to transfer up to 9 s.h. of graduate course work. The transferred course credits must be approved by the academic advisor before or during the first semester in which the student begins the graduate program at YSU.
No more than two advisor-approved 5800-level (swing) courses are allowed in the plan of study.
