About

University of Southern California began teaching electrical engineering more than a century ago, when the field was widely considered a subset of physics. Today our work is vitally important and critical to the advancement of the information age. Apply to the Electrical Engineering - Electric Power MSc program offered at University of Southern California.

Overview

These include: circuits; antenna networks; bio-signal processing; computer architecture; very large-scale integration and computer-aided design; computer networks; control systems; high-speed switching architectures; signal, image and multimedia processing; nanotechnology; optical communications; photonics; and quantum information processing.

The electric power industry is presently experiencing what has been described as the most revolutionary (and exciting) set of technological changes since the days of Edison. Apart from environmental pressures that demand a revised portfolio of energy resources, utilities are anticipating the development of a so-called “smart grid” that promises new opportunities for efficient and reliable use of electric power. The skills that electric power engineers will require are changing accordingly.

What you will study

The Electrical Engineering - Electric Power MSc program at University of Southern California is a program option for students seeking careers in the electric power industry. The plan of study combines traditional topics in power generation, transmission, and distribution with cutting-edge topics such as the integration of renewable energy sources in the “smart grid.”
