Field Of Study

A Master of Science student may elect to study in Electrical Engineering and be directed by the Electrical Engineering faculty. Montana Tech offers advanced studies in Electrical Engineering in the areas of signals and systems, controls, and electrical power systems. All students must successfully complete EELE 5380 . Also, students must select two courses from EELE 5220 , EELE 5270 , EELE 5370 , EELE 5400 , EELE 5410 , EELE 5550 .

Degree Program

The Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering may be obtained under either Option A (thesis or publishable paper option) or Option B (non-thesis option). The required number of credits (30 or 36 depending whether the student is following Option A or Option B) will be selected upon approval of the student’s graduate committee, in a manner such that the Graduate School requirements are met.

Seminar Requirements: Two credits of Graduate Seminar are required: T.C. 5150 - Graduate Writing Seminar  or equivalent, and ENGR 5940 .


All Students must successfully complete a qualifying exam during the first year of study.

When the candidate for a master’s degree has elected Option A (thesis option), the student must present the thesis and pass an oral examination. The oral examination will include an examination on the thesis presentation, but may also include questions relating to the graduate study program.

Students who elect the non-thesis option must complete at least six (6) credits of special problems and pass an oral and comprehensive exam.
