The graduate program prepares students for technical leadership roles in industry, academia and government. The training provides students with a fundamental understanding of engineering sciences so that graduates can develop creative and innovative approaches to solve important engineering problems of interest to mankind. The program offers degrees leading to either a master of science or doctoral degree in electrical and computer engineering and there are many specializations to choose from.

The course work for the master’s program is very flexible to fit the needs of the student. The master’s program has two options: thesis and non-thesis.

The Project Path (non-thesis) option requires at least 30 hours of graduate credit with an average grade point average of 3.0 or better. Requirements include at least 30 credits and of these 30 credits:

  • At least 24 credits must be letter-graded (no S/U), of which
    • At least 15 credits must be ECE courses, one of which is ECE 6070 (Project Management)
    • At least 6 credits must be ECE 6000 level and above completed at OSU. ECE 6070 (Project Management) does not count as an advanced requirement.
    • A maximum of 6 credits of Individual Studies credit (ECE 6193) is permitted.
    • A maximum of 9 credits are allowed in a related field such as engineering, biological sciences, physics, math, chemistry, business, economics, ACCAD and statistics.

The thesis option requires at least 30 hours of graduate credit with an average grade of 3.0 or better.

Requirements include:

1. A satisfactory thesis represented by at least 10 credits of ECE 6999 thesis research credits.

2. At least 20 credits exclusive of thesis research credits (ECE 6999). Of these 20 credits:

  • At least 18 credits must be letter-graded (no S/U), of which
    • At least 9 credits must be ECE courses
    • At least 6 credits must be ECE 6000 level and above completed at OSU.
    • A maximum of 9 credits in a related field (engineering, biological sciences, physics, math, chemistry, business, economics, ACCAD, statistics)
    • A maximum of 2 credits of individual studies (ECE 6193)
A bachelor of science degree in electrical or computer engineering or related fields is required for admission.For the master’s program, an undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.2 on a 4.0 scale is required.
