The Master of Science degree program in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the California State University Sacramento is designed to provide students with advanced study in a variety of Electrical and Electronic Engineering topics, and opportunities to conduct independent research to broaden their professional scope.



The scheduling of courses and the Culminating Experience options in the program are designed to provide flexibility for working professionals. All Electrical and Electronic Engineering students at the California State University Sacramento complete a one-unit research methodology course, three-unit computational methods course, and at least two of the designated elective area core courses. This requirement is designed to provide a strong academic foundation. In consultation with the Graduate Coordinator and faculty advisors, students then focus their studies in one or more of the following areas, adapting to the needs and interests of the practicing engineer or post-graduate candidate:

  • Control Systems
  • Communication Systems
  • Power Systems
  • Microelectronic Design
  • Computer Architecture & Digital Design

Coordinated courses are offered in advanced microprocessors, electromagnetic theory and microwaves, lasers and fiber optics, semiconductor devices, robotics and intelligent machines, systems and control, networks, and communication systems. Other coordinated courses facilitate the study of estimation and stochastic control, advanced communications and signal processing, large interconnected power systems, power systems reliability, and planning, advanced design and organization of digital computer systems, and advanced integrated circuit design. The program is also sufficiently flexible to allow special independent studies of problems of current interest.

The Department has a strong relationship with the local engineering community. Students of the program have access to Department laboratories and facilities and to University computer services.
