About

The student enrolled in the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering program from Gannon University shall devise a curriculum with his/her advisor to pursue knowledge in advanced control theory, system modeling, electronics, communication, systems engineering, and embedded software. 

The world of electrical and computer engineering is an ever-changing one. The advances in technologies over a new graduate’s professional career of approximately 40 years will be phenomenal. 

While the undergraduate coursework puts a solid foundation in mathematics, engineering science, and humanities, as well as the ability to tackle and solve new problems in a forthright manner,  graduate school is the next step in a lifetime of learning for both new graduates and experienced working professionals. 

Gannon’s Electrical and Computer Engineering department offers two graduate programs for those who wish to continue their education in advanced subjects and stay abreast of the rapidly changing technological world: a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) degree and a Master of Science in Embedded Software Engineering (MSES) degree.
