    Preparatory Requirements

    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.
