Optional M.S. Concentrations
Students in the electrical engineering M.S. program often choose to use some of their electives to focus on a particular field. Students may pick one of a number of optional, formal concentration templates or design their own M.S. program in consultation with an adviser. These concentrations are not degree requirements. They represent suggestions from the faculty as to how one might fill one’s programs so as to focus on a particular area of interest. Students may wish to follow these suggestions, but they need not. Details, including advisers and course lists, can be found in the Optional M.S. Concentrations section of the bulletin.
