Program overview

The master of science degree in electrical engineering allows students to customize their course work while working closely with electrical engineering faculty in a contemporary, applied research area. At RIT Dubai, students may choose among the following two options: Communication or Control.

The MS degree is awarded upon the successful completion of a minimum of 30 semester credit hours, including a 6 credit hour thesis. Students have the option of doing a 3 credit hour graduate paper in place of the thesis. In this case, an additional course is required.

Resources

Effective fall 2013, RIT will move from the current quarter system to a semester-based academic calendar. These materials and resources are designed to ensure that students who are on track will graduate on time. Students are encouraged to talk to their academic advisers if they have any concerns or questions regarding their courses and progress.
