Master of Science in Electrical Engineering is a program which consists of a total of 30 credit hours where 24 credit hours is baseline course work (8 Courses) and in remaining 06 credit hours, the student can choose to take two additional courses (MSc by course work) or a research based thesis (MSc with research).

Objective

The objective of the program is to provide knowledge of the advanced concepts and skills to deal with advanced problems in selected areas of electrical engineering to the students in a stimulating and conducive learning atmosphere by providing them with the intellectual and technological tools necessary to meet the challenges of the future.

Scope

MSc in electrical engineering program offers the knowledge of advanced techniques in specialized areas such as power systems, control systems, and communication systems. Set of skills obtained in the BSc program are polished and enhanced with a focused approach covering mainly the area of specialization selected by the student. Major purpose of this approach is to impart critical analysis and detailed design skills into the graduates so that they may be able to contribute at higher level in the industry. Another aspect of the MSc program is to get the student ready to tackle more advanced problems related to cutting edge research in their respective area of specialization. This is to prepare the graduates for further learning and research as PhD scholars.

Program Requirement

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering consists of a total of 30 credit hours of course work or 24 credit hours of course work with 6 credit hours of research work/thesis. Master’s program spans over 1.5 years minimum and 3 years maximum. Students may register in maximum of 3 courses in one semester.

CGPA Requirement for Degree: 2.50 or more (out of 4.0 in Semester System)
Option # 1 : 30 Credit Hours course work (10 Courses)
Option # 2 : Minimum 24 Credit Hours course (8 Courses) + 6 Credit Hours thesis

  • M.Sc. Student becomes eligible for M.Sc. (Thesis) after completion of five courses provided his / her CGPA is 3.0 or more. Thesis carries a weightage of six credit hours. After registration student is supposed to complete the thesis within a span of two semesters (Semester in which he / she is registered and the following semester).

Eligibility for Admission

For admission in master’s program, the candidate should be eligible as follows:

  • 16 years of schooling or 4 years education (124 credit hours) from a PEC recognized institution after HSSC/F.Sc/A-Levels/Grade 12 equivalent.
  • For admission, a minimum CGPA 2.00 (out of 4.00 in the semester system) or 2nd division (in the annual system) in bachelor/master/equivalent degree is required.

Admission Procedure

The procedure for admission in master’s degree program is as follows:

  • The GAT-General conducted by the National Testing Service with a minimum 50 % cumulative score will be required at the time of admission. The GAT- General is valid for a period of two years. Second option available to the candidate is the admission test conducted under arrangement of post graduate admission committee of FOE UCP.
  • The candidate is also required to clear the interview conducted by the department of electrical engineering.

Curriculum M.Sc. Electrical Engineering

MS in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) includes the following specializations or major areas:

  • Control Systems Engineering
  • Power Systems Engineering
  • Electronics and Communications Engineering

Control Systems Engineering

The control systems specialization aims to provide the graduates with sound engineering knowledge and broad professional skills to design, develop, implement, manage and supervise automation systems for different engineering applications.

Power Systems Engineering

The power system engineering program actively pursues research in the areas of system reliability and performance modeling and prediction, system protection and automation, system control and stability, large-scale system computational methodologies and power electronics. The program will also focus on the renewable energy options available, and would also give a chance of research in the non-conventional energy methods.

Electronics and Communications Engineering

Research in communications is concerned with efficient representation, storage, transmission, processing, routing and reception of information from a wide variety of sources. The range in research will be from the highly-mathematical, to applied algorithm design, experimental prototyping, and contributions to emerging industry standards. In signal processing, the research will span a wide range of areas of signal processing including signal processing for communications, speech processing for recognition and synthesis, multimedia signal processing and compression, medical imaging, optical information processing, array/distributed/collaborative signal processing, immersive audio, speech processing for recognition and synthesis, and other multimedia related technologies such as content-based representation and retrieval.
