MAPS, a concentration in the Electrical Engineering graduate program, covers material in microwave theory and techniques, antennas and photonics. A concentration in this area provides students the tools to understand, design and implement telecommunication systems for a variety of terrestrial and space applications. Our increased reliance on high frequency systems ensures that this field will grow as an in-demand area of expertise both for the corporate world and defense industry.
Ten courses (30 credits) are required to complete a Master’s in Electrical Engineering with a MAPS concentration. The following core courses are required:
- Introduction to Photonics (ECE8562)
- Microwave Theory and Techniques I (ECE8670)
- Microwave Theory and Techniques II (ECE8671)
- Antenna Theory I (ECE8675)
Area courses include:
- RFIC Design (ECE8566)
- Optoelectronic Devices and Circuits (ECE8568)
- Antenna Theory II (ECE8676)
- Optical Communications (ECE8760)
Additional courses should be selected to complement those above and to support your professional interests.
Degree plans must be submitted before registering for your first semester. Students in the five-year BS/MS program must submit their plan before registering for fall semester of their senior year.
