Graduate Students without BSEE


Students without a B.S.E.E. degree or equivalent preparation will be expected to take classes covering the core knowledge required in our B.S.E.E. program. This includes mathematics through differential equations and basic engineering physics. The student’s graduate advisor will prepare an individualized deficiency schedule, based on the student’s academic background and work experience. The following courses from our undergraduate program will be considered deficiencies for students without a B.S.E.E and applies to those students who are enrolled in the MSEE program and have a bachelor’s degree in a field other than electrical engineering or are enrolled in the Ph.D. (electrical) engineering program and have bachelor’s and a master’s degrees in fields other than electrical engineering.


MATH 191, Calculus and Analytic Geometry I

MATH 192, Calculus and Analytic Geometry II

MATH 291, Calculus and Analytic Geometry III

MATH 392, Introduction to Ordinary Differential Equations

E E 161, Computer Aided Problem Solving

E E 162, Digital Circuit Design

E E 210, Engineering Analysis I

E E 260, Embedded Systems

E E 280, DC and AC Circuits

E E 310, Engineering Analysis II

E E 312, Signals and Systems I

E E 314, Signals and Systems II

E E 351, Applied Electromagnetics

E E 380, Electronics I

For many students, some of the courses may be bypassed because of similar content in courses already taken and/or work experience.  Your advisor determines what courses may be bypassed.  Deficiency classes must be completed successfully with a letter grade of C or better.  These classes should be finished as early in the graduate program as possible.

For students who have a bachelor’s degree from the NMSU Engineering Technology Department with the Electronics Option, we have made a table (ECET to MSEE at NMSU) to help determine what deficiency courses are necessary.
