The Master of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (M.E.E.E.) is a professional degree that provides advanced practical and theoretical training in electrical engineering. Graduates will be prepared to excel in careers in the public or private sector that require them to solve problems in communications, photonics, signal and information processing, electronics, electric power, and related fields.The M.E.E.E. program is designed to make a difference, not just in students’ resumes, but in their ability to thrive and grow in today’s technical workplaces. For those who decide to go further with their studies, the M.E.E.E. has been specifically arranged to mesh smoothly with the Ph.D. program currently in place at CUNY’s City College.

Transfer Students

Students who have taken graduate work at other institutions may receive up to nine transfer credits provided that the material is equivalent to a graduate course included within the Electrical Engineering Master’s program and that it was completed with a grade of B or better within a five-year period preceding matriculation at the College of Staten Island.

Academic Standing

It is expected that graduate students will maintain a high scholastic standing, as represented by an average grade of B or better in program courses. Failure to maintain satisfactory scholastic standing, irregularity in attendance, or other misconduct will be grounds for a student to be placed on probationary status by the MEEE-CAS. Regular status will be reinstated when the average grade has been improved to B and any conditions imposed regarding other misconduct have been satisfied.  Students on probationary status cannot apply for the degree.

After two consecutive semesters on probation, any student who has not met the requirements for restoration to regular status will be required to withdraw from the program. Waivers of this policy, as well as readmission after an involuntary withdrawal, will be at the recommendation of the MEEE-CAS, with the approval of the program Director.

Graduate Course Double Counting Policy 

Undergraduate students satisfying the following criteria may be granted permission to take up to two graduate courses (to fulfill their 400 level elective requirements) to be counted towards both their bachelor’s and master’s degree. This allows students to earn both the bachelor’s and the master’s degrees in five years.  

Students must meet the following criteria:

1. Current enrollment in bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering at College of Staten Island and successful completion of three years of study with 90 or more earned credits. 

2. Cumulative GPA 3.0 or above.

3. Two letters of recommendation, at least one from a full-time College of Staten Island ENS faculty under whom the applicant has studied. 

4. Permissions from the coordinator of the graduate program, and the department chairperson.

5. Application for admission and conditionally accepted to Master of Engineering in Electrical Engineering program. 

6. Graduate courses in the following list are eligible: ELE 600 (Probability and Stochastic Processes in Engineering), ELE 610 (Advanced Signal Processing), ELE 620 (Networking Systems and Protocols), ELE 630 (Semiconductor Devices), ELE 636 (Electrical Machines and Energy Systems), ELE 641 (Advanced Digital Communications),ELE 652 (Information Theory),ELE 701 (Photonic Devices), ELE 713 (Principles and Practice of Secure Networking), ELE 722 (Data Modeling and Compression), ELE 732 (Estimation, Detection, Learning and Inference), ELE 736 (Electric Power Transmission and Distribution), ELE 741 (Photonic Systems and Networks), ELE 755 (Principles and Practice of Machine Vision)
