    ECE Graduate Programs

    Master of Power Engineering

    30 credit hours

    The purpose of this degree program is to prepare students for leading edge positions in industry in the areas of electric power, power electronics, motor drives, and electric machines. The Professional Master of Power Engineering is a course-only degree program that prepares students for professional practice in power engineering.

    The admission requirements for the proposed degree will follow the existing admission requirements for such professional master’s degrees in ECE Department. Students whose accredited B.S. degree is not in electrical engineering may pursue the professional master’s degree provided that they have an adequate background and can demonstrate proficiency in the material contained in undergraduate courses equivalent to IIT’s ECE 211 and ECE 213 (Circuit Analysis I and II), ECE 311 (Engineering Electronics), ECE 319 (Fundamentals of Power Engineering), MATH 251 (Multivariate and Vector Calculus), and MATH 252 (Introduction to Differential Equations). A student may demonstrate proficiency by successfully completing the courses or by demonstrating satisfactory performance in one or more special examinations administered by the ECE department.

    The program of study includes a minimum of 30 credit hours of acceptable coursework with a minimum of 24 credit hours from the following list of core and elective courses (up to 6 credit hours may be selected from other ECE courses). A minimum of 18 credit hours at the 500-level or higher must be selected. Up to 2 credit hours of theMaster’s Seminar (ECE 595 or ECE 596), up to 3 credit hours of a Graduate Special Project in power engineering (ECE 594 or ECE 597), and up to 6 credit hours of ECE short courses may be applied to the degree.
