MS - Curriculum

The program consists of eight graduate level (600 level or higher) courses, including six core courses and two elective courses for students with BS degree in a discipline other than Microelectronic Engineering. Two core courses and six elective courses are required for students with BS in Microelectronic Engineering. In addition, all graduate students in this program are required to take one credit seminar/research course for three semesters. Up to three seminar/research course credits will be allowed to count toward the required 33 credit hours. A six-credit thesis that includes dissertation submission and oral defense will be required of all students in this program. The total number of credits needed for the Master of Science in Microelectronics Engineering is 33.

The student - in consultation with his or her academic advisor - formulates a plan of study based on the student's academic background, program objectives, degree requirements and course offerings and submits it to the program director within the first year. If necessary, the plan of study may be requested for revision with the recommendation of the advisor.Plan of Study
