In order to obtain an MSEE degree all students must complete a Graduate Paper or a Graduate Thesis. Of the minimum 30 credit hours needed to earn the degree, a typical student earns 24 to 27 credit hours from course work and the remaining credit hours from the Graduate Paper or MS Thesis.
Thesis and Graduate Paper credits do not affect the GPA. A grade of 'R' is given upon registration. At completion, the adviser approves the paper with his or her signature.
The Graduate Paper mandates a minimum of 3 credits while the Thesis credit mandates a minimum of 6 credits. You may register for these all at once or by increments of 1 credit.
