Masters in Electronics & Telecommunications Engineering. – Course Outline

Objective of the Program

The objective of this 33 credit hour MS-ETE program is to train the students to become competent and efficient engineers in the telecommunications, computers and information technology. The curriculum has been designed in close alignment with similar programs of the American and Canadian universities. The graduates will be able to plan, analyze, design, implement, operate, test, maintain and manage the telecommunications system and business. The program is highly recommended for students who wish to obtain technical as well as engineering management positions in the telecommunications and ICT industry.

Degree Requirements

The program curriculum consists of a minimum of 33 credit hours including 6 core courses, 3 electives, and 1 graduate thesis work. Core classes engage the student in the study of telecommunications system, network and technology, with laboratory exercises, and designing telecommunications systems effectively within organizations. The elective courses provide a balanced diversification in the broader field of electronics and communications. The breakdown of the 33 credits is as follows:

6 courses from the core subjects: 18 credits
3 courses from the elective subjects: 9 credits
Graduate Thesis/(Project+course): 6 credits
Total: 33 credits

Thesis and Projects Options (must choose any one option):

(1) Option 1: ETE 699 Graduate Thesis 6 credits
(2) Option 2: ETE 599 Graduate Project + an elective course

ETE 599 Graduate Project 3 credits
One elective course 3 credits


6 credits

The students must secure a CGPA of 3.0 for the award of the MS-ETE degree. A student must complete required number of credits with minimum CGPA of 3.0 on a 4 point scale to earn the degree. To continue in the program a student must maintain a minimum CGPA of 3.0 at all levels of academic advancement. If in any semester the CGPA drops below 2.70 the student will be on academic probation. If a student remains on probation for two consecutive semesters, he/she will be dismissed from the program.
