The online master’s in Electrical Engineering at Fairleigh Dickinson University is designed to help you take the next step in your career as an engineering professional. Built off of FDU’s internationally recognized on-ground MSEE, our online learning option offers you the same academic excellence we provide on campus while giving you the flexibility you need to earn your degree on a schedule that’s right for you.
Our online master’s in electrical engineering allows you to customize your education by providing one of three tracks of study: Digital Signaling Processing and Communications, Computers, or Devices and Systems.
Some key topics of study include:
- Digital signal processing
- Combinational, sequential, memory, and programmable logic
- CPU design
- Firmware design
- Software modeling
- Continuous and digital control systems
- Digital filtering
- Random processes and spectral analysis
- Cellular concept and system architectures
- Linear systems
- Simulation packages for engineering problem solving
- Circuits and system modeling
- Robotics engineering
- Integrated circuit devices
- Data transmission and encoding
- Encryption and decryption
If you want to take your education a step further, you may also choose to complete a six-credit hour research thesis. Under the guidance of a graduate school adviser, you may choose a focus topic of your own interest, allowing you to further personalize your learning experience.
After you graduate, your online electrical engineering degree can open up a world of professional opportunities. Those with a master’s in electrical engineering can work in areas such as research and development, design and analysis, testing, consulting, teaching, sales, or management.
