The curriculum was designed to include a mandatory common mix of electronics, computers, communications and control courses. The student can also select courses from the elective lists in the four areas to establish the required knowledge and depth in the sought specialty. The student can choose the thesis or non-thesis option. The thesis track requires the student to conduct specialized scientific research, write up a thesis and defend it against the examining committee. The non-thesis track requires passing a general exam, taken after successfully finishing all courses, and finishing an advanced project with a detailed report. The program is taught and supervised by distinguished, experienced and specialized faculty, who graduated from well-known, internationally recognized universities.
The program is based on 34 credit hours, of which 9 are elective hours. This program accepts students with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, or any of its subspecialties, or a degree close to it, with a grade of “good” or “c” or higher.
