Students must meet the CSUF requirements for admission to a master’s degree program. Please consult the Graduate Admissions section in this catalog for complete information. In addition, to qualify for admission with conditionally classified standing, applicants must meet the following departmental requirements:
Applicants graduated with an undergraduate degree in engineering or computer science:
- Minimum GPA of 2.5 for applicants graduated from domestic (U.S.) institutions.
- Minimum GPA of 2.5 for applicants graduated from ABET-accredited international institutions.
- Pre-requisite courses: BSEE upper-division core courses such as EE 309, EE 310, EE 323, and EE 409 or their equivalent with a GPA of 3.0 (B) or better.
Applicants graduated with an undergraduate degree other than engineering or computer science:
- Minimum GPA of 3.0 for applicants graduated from domestic (U.S.) institutions.
- Minimum GPA of 3.0 for applicants with undergraduate degrees from non-ABET accredited international institutions.
- Prerequisite courses: BSEE core courses such as EE 203, EE 245, EE 303, EE 308, EE 309, EE 310, EE 323, and EE 409, or their equivalent with a GPA of 3.0 (B) or better.
- Appropriate prerequisites must be completed prior to taking any graduate-level courses.
Students with GPA lower than 3.0, or degrees from non-ABET accredited universities or undergraduate majors other than Electrical Engineering may be considered for conditional admission with appropriate prerequisite courses assigned. However, prerequisites must be made up prior to advancing to classified standing and must be completed with a minimum GPA of 3.0 (B).
Each applicant file will be reviewed by the department’s graduate adviser. Upon admission, the applicant is required to make an appointment with the department’s graduate advisor who will assign a faculty adviser based on the student’s areas of interest and career objectives.
Students requesting Graduate Project (EGEE 597), Thesis (EGEE 598) or Independent Study (EGEE 599) must complete a study application form and submit it for approval to the supervising faculty member and department chair prior to the semester in which the coursework is to begin.
A minimum of 15 units must be at the 500-level.
