Master of Science in Electrical Engineering

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering

An electrical engineering master's degree that merges technology, engineering, and science and applies them to practical, industrial, and business applications.

Accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education

The curriculum for the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering combines theoretical fundamentals and practical lessons to help you understand and implement the practices, methodologies, and cutting-edge techniques of this dynamic field of technology. You will follow a program of study that includes courses in the areas of engineering mathematics, communications, and control, and you will have the option to complete your studies with either a thesis, graduate paper, or comprehensive exam.

The program is offered in its entirety at RIT Dubai during weekday evenings, enabling working professionals to complete the degree in as little as 18 months. You can also choose to study abroad or transfer to the main campus in Rochester, New York, subject to achieving additional relevant requirements and approvals.

Mission Statement:

The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering program aims to foster an environment that encourages independent thinking and creativity and prepares students to pursue doctoral degrees in electrical engineering or a related discipline. Graduates of the program will also establish proficiency in a concentrated field of study and develop professional attributes that include communication skills and ethics to deal with the impact of technology and engineering solutions in a global and societal context.

Program Educational Objectives:

The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are broad statements that describe what you would be expected to attain within a few years of graduation. PEOs are based on the needs of the program’s constituencies. The Electrical Engineering faculty, in conjunction with its constituents, has established the following program educational objectives:

  • Graduates will have specialized training in a concentrated field of study and develop professional attributes that include communication skills, and ethics to deal with the impact of technology in a global and societal context.
  • The program will foster an environment that encourages independent thinking and creativity that prepares them to pursue doctoral degrees in electrical engineering or related disciplines.

Student Learning Outcomes:

Student Learning Outcomes define what you will be expected to know and what you will be equipped to do by the time you graduate. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that you will acquire in your matriculation through the program. Upon graduation, you will demonstrate:

Independent Thinking:

An ability to work independently and/or in a team setting and possess the skills to continue to do so, on a global level.

Career Focus:

Proficiency in a concentrated course of study and research in a specialty area or subfield of Electrical Engineering.

Communication:

The ability to effectively communicate both in written and oral form.

A shortage of electrical engineering talent in the job market, particularly in the GCC, means that the demand for RIT Dubai graduates remains at an all-time high. Our graduates are working in a range of roles including Project Managers, Systems Engineers, Project Engineers, and General Managers.
