The Master of Science (MS) in Electrical Engineering at the University of New Orleans opens up a multitude of pathways for working adults with general engineering backgrounds. 


At the University of New Orleans, we offer four possible concentrations—Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, or Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering—present opportunities for higher-level specialization and offer a credential for advancing into a management role. 

Key Features 

  • The research-based curriculum further positions students to progress into a Ph.D. program following the completion of their master’s degree or to transition into a more education-leaning or analytical role within the workplace.
  • The University of New Orleans (UNO) recognizes that many master’s students matriculating through the Graduate School and the College of Engineering (COE) already have full-time careers. Earning an advanced degree allows these working professionals to gain new knowledge, acquire additional skills, or move into a position with more responsibilities.

Programme Structure

  • Students pursuing a Master of Science in Engineering must decide on their degree’s track: thesis or non-thesis and one of four concentrations. For thesis students, six (6) of all credit hours are devoted to a research-based thesis project. For non-thesis students, three (3) credit hours go toward a master’s project. Review all Thesis and Dissertation Requirements.
  • All students must complete at least 30 credit hours to earn their degree. Fifteen (15) or more of these credit hours must include 6000-level or higher courses. With their advisor’s approval, students may also complete up to six (6) credit hours outside the COE. To receive a degree, students must fulfill all COE-specific and Graduate School requirements.
