Arizona State University (ASU) is home to 67,507 undergraduate and 15,794 graduate students as of fall 2014. Five schools make up the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, including the School of Electrical Computer and Energy Engineering.
The curriculum for the electrical engineering bachelor's program includes basic engineering courses and courses in electrical power systems, microprocessors, communication and control systems, circuits and solid-state electronics. The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering program requires no thesis. Individuals can choose to specialize in one of several areas, including electronic and mixed signal circuit design, electric power and energy systems, solid-state electronics, electromagnetics or control systems.
The MBA/MSEE degree program is a joint effort of ASU's W.P. Carey School of Business and the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. Students can complete the 16 required courses in as little as three years. They must attend an on-campus orientation and complete the MBA curriculum as a group; students can choose from the same six concentrations available to those in the MSEE program.
Students in the PhD program also can specialize in the same six concentrations offered to master's students. Doctoral students must complete a written and oral examination, a prospectus and a dissertation to be eligible for graduation.
