About

A Master of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) at the University of Bridgeport will provide the student with the knowledge and skills needed to pursue many new and different careers in modern society, including careers that have yet to be invented.

Overview

The EE department has an electronics design program that is state-of-the-art, with emphasis on very large scale integrated circuits design (VLSI) on a microscopic scale and with a new emphasis of VLSI design on a nanometer-scale as well. A series of VLSI courses (i) design (Analog and Digital VLSI, radio frequency VLSI, low power VLSI), (ii) fabrication (microelectronic fabrication and nanotechnology), and (iii) testing (VLSI testing) are available. 

This master degree in Electrical Engineering is offered at the University of Bridgeport. A closely related field is mirco- and nano-technology MEMS (microelectromechanical systems). Micro-MEMS designs systems of electronics and motion the size of microns. The smaller nano-MEMS builds systems the size of individual molecules. Nano-MEMS is used to create the next generation of VLSI components, including single-electron-transistors, nano-wires, and quantum computers.

Our department has a strong concentration in signal analysis, including the analysis of human speech vs. noise and the transmission of signals via satellite or cable or cell tower.

The EE department has a large PLC lab. Programmable Logic Control consists of 2 parts. You build an assembly line to move products and to do things to these products; for example, a robot arm will sort products or load them on to a platform. To control this assembly line, you need to implement the necessary computer code.
