EE Graduate Programs

CSULB offers the following graduate programs of interest to Electrical Engineering students.


Master's in Electrical Engineering

The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering affords an opportunity for engineers and others to advance their competency in analysis and design to better meet the high technology needs of local industry. Select two core courses and three graduate courses in one area of emphasis, and remaining courses supporting the area of emphasis:

  • Communications, Digital Signal Processing, and Networking
  • Control Systems & Robotics
  • Digital Systems and Computers
  • Electronics, and
  • Power

Students may create other areas of emphasis with the approval of the graduate advisor. Students can complete a thesis, project, or courses only. Successful completion of a thesis provides a unifying culmination to the program, and an enhanced resume for future industrial or academic endeavors. A limited number of laboratory and teaching assistantships are available to qualified graduate students.

New students: Before enrolling for courses, consult with Assistant Professor Shabnam Sodagari, Faculty Advisor, at the Graduate Student Success Center.
Returning students: Consult the new MSEE Handbook if you enrolled in Fall 2016 or later and the previous MSEE Handbook if you enrolled prior to Fall 2016.

Master's in Engineering (Interdisciplinary)

Students wishing to pursue advanced study may be interested in the College of Engineering’s Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) degree. Graduate study leading to the MSE can be tailored to the goals of a student with a background in chemical engineering by taking advanced course work to develop expertise in one of four areas:

  • Environmental: Chemistry and civil engineering
  • Controls: Electrical engineering
  • Microelectronics: Computer engineering
  • Thermal, fluids, and materials: Mechanical engineering

With most courses offered in the evening, the program is tailored to working professionals.
