The CTU Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree program is designed to provide technical depth in engineering topics that require a solid foundation in advanced mathematics (including calculus, differential equations and linear algebra), engineering and physics. Students who possess this background but need to refresh their technical or mathematical skills are highly encouraged to take MATH500. Students who have the technical or mathematical background but possess an undergraduate engineering degree other than electrical or computer engineering are highly encouraged to take EE500. Students from a non-engineering undergraduate background should consult with an Engineering Chair or Dean to design an undergraduate foundation engineering program in preparation for this degree.
Total tuition for this degree program will vary depending on your educational needs, existing experience, and other factors.

Gainful Employment and Other Student Disclosures
Below you can find placement rates and other information tailored to your chosen campus and program. Certain disclosures are published on this website to assist students in understanding the facts about their programs.
The percentage of first-time, full-time undergraduate students who started between
7/1/2009 and 10/15/2009 who completed within 150% of the normal time period: 27%
This Graduation Rate includes both Colorado Springs and Pueblo campus locations.
A first-time student has no prior postsecondary experience before enrolling at this campus. This means that a student who attended another college, university or other postsecondary school before enrolling at this school is not included in the calculation. The rate also does not include students initially enrolled part-time, taking individual classes (as compared to enrolling in a full program), or only auditing classes. These rates are calculated using the Student Right-to-Know formula in order to comply with U.S. Department of Education requirements. The statistics track all first-time, full-time and certificate or degree-seeking undergraduate students who began school during the date range and have completed within 150% of the normal program length. For example, for a two-year program, the graduation rate would include students who had completed within three years of beginning the program. This statistic is not specific to one program alone; rather, all applicable undergraduate programs are included in this overall rate. Information pertaining to the Graduation Rates of all postsecondary institutions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education may be found on the College Navigator website. http://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/
