Optional concentrations within the MS program allow students to focus on coursework in the following areas: Telecommunications Engineering, Wireless and Mobile Communications, Lightwave (Photonics) Engineering, Integrated Circuits and Systems, Microelectronic Devices, and Multimedia Networking. [+]

Contemporary electrical engineering is a broad discipline that encompasses a wide range of activities. A common theme is the use of electricity and electromagnetism for the generation, transmission, processing, storage, conversion, and control of information and energy. An equally important aspect is the human interface and the role of individuals as the sources and recipients of information. The rates at which information is transmitted today range from megabits per second to gigabits per second and, in some cases, as high as terabits per second. The range of frequencies over which these processes are studied extends from direct current (i.e., zero frequency), to microwave and optical frequencies. The need for increasingly faster and more sophisticated methods of handling information poses a major challenge to the electrical engineer. New materials, devices, circuits, systems, and networks are needed to build the advanced communications and information-handling systems of the future. Previous innovations in electrical engineering have had a dramatic impact on the way in which we work and live: the transistor, integrated circuits, computers, radio and television, satellite transmission systems, lasers, fiber optic transmission systems, and medical electronics. Optional concentrations within the MS program allow students to focus on coursework in the following areas: Telecommunications Engineering, Wireless and Mobile Communications, Lightwave (Photonics) Engineering, Integrated Circuits and Systems, Microelectronic Devices, and Multimedia Networking. NEW! A concentration option in Systems Biology is now available. COURSES Students must complete all core courses and selected electives for a total of 30 graduate points of academic work via CVN with a GPA of 2.5 or better. All degree requirements must be completed within 5 years of the first course credited toward the degree. This includes courses in the non-degree program. Course Requirements: A minimum of 15 points of credit must be at the 6000 level or higher. At least 15 points must be courses in Electrical Engineering, defined as those with an ELEN designator or joint courses that include Electrical Engineering (e.g., with joint designators such as EECS, CSEE, EEME, ECBM, EEBM, & BMEE. Courses to be credited toward the M.S. degree can be taken only upon prior approval of the program advisor. Certain 4000-level courses will not be credited toward the M.S. degree, and no more than 6 points of research may be taken for credit.

Master of Science in Applied Mathematics Applied mathematics is the language of science, engineering, and fields beyond. Just as English is spoken by more non-native speakers than by native, mathematics is used daily by more non-mathematicians than by mathematicians. A Master's Degree in Applied Mathematics is an ideal career complement to nearly any practicing or aspiring researcher in quantitative domains. This has always included the physical sciences and has in the past decades increasingly included the biological and social sciences, as well. With the advent of commodity high-performance computing, applied mathematics has transcended its traditional analytical style and assumes an even greater importance and vitality in the realm of simulation. Compared with the pure mathematician, the applied mathematician is more interested in problems driven by external fields. Compared with the engineer or scientist, she is more concerned with the formulation of problems (modeling) and the nature of solutions in the abstract. Compared with the computer scientist, he is more concerned with the tradeoff of accuracy against complexity and the interpretation of results. The work of members of all these groups often overlaps, and applied mathematics is smack in the active middle. As such, it naturally offers a degree with flexible elective requirements. Admission Requirements Degree required for admission: Students admitted to the program must possess an undergraduate degree in engineering, science, mathematics, computer science or other related field (subject to the approval of the Applied Mathematics Program) from an accredited academic institution. Applicants should have a strong undergraduate record to be competitive for admission.

Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering Mechanical engineering is a diverse subject that derives its breadth from the need to design and manufacture everything from small individual parts and devices (e.g. microscale sensors and inkjet printer nozzles) to large systems (e.g. spacecraft and machine tools). The role of a mechanical engineer is to take a product from an idea to the marketplace. In order to accomplish this, a broad range of skills are needed. The mechanical engineer needs to acquire particular skills and knowledge. He/she needs to understand the forces and the thermal environment that a product, its parts, or its subsystems will encounter; to design them for functionality, aesthetics, and the ability to withstand the forces and the thermal environment they will be subjected to; and to determine the best way to manufacture them and ensure they will operate without failure. Perhaps the one skill that is the mechanical engineer's exclusive domain is the ability to analyze and design objects and systems with motion. The Mechanical Engineering Department at Columbia was established in 1897. It has enjoyed a national and international reputation for much of its history. Between 1950 and 1980, professors Dudley D. Fuller, Harold G. Elrod, and Vittorio Castelli were the foremost leaders in the field of lubrication theory and practice. In the 1960s, Professor Ferdinand Freudenstein (known as the "Father of Modern Kinematics"), revolutionized the field of mechanical design by ushering in the computer age in kinematics synthesis and the design of mechanism. In more recent times, the department has been known for its research contributions in the fields of control theory, manufacturing, thermofluids, and biomechanics. Faculty members have given keynote lectures in national and international conferences and received best-paper awards and professional-society awards. All faculty members are active in research with many serving as editors and associate editors of professional journals and as leaders in professional societies. Admission Requirements Degree required for admission: Students admitted to the program must possess a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering or other related field (subject to the approval of the Mechanical Engineering Program) from an accredited academic institution. Applicants should have a strong undergraduate record to be competitive for admission. GPA required: Minimum of 3.0 GRE requirements: General test required Other application requirements: Two recommendation letters, transcripts, resume, and a personal-professional statement are required. TOEFL test scores are required of all students who received their bachelor's degree in a country where English is not the official and spoken language. All application requirements in the Graduate Application must be completed as specified in the application. Courses The program leading to the Master of Science degree in mechanical engineering requires completion of a minimum of 30 points of approved course work via CVN consisting of no fewer than ten courses. A minimum grade point average of 2.5 is required for graduation. All degree requirements must be completed within 5 years of the beginning of the first course credited toward the degree. This includes courses taken in the non-degree program. The student's program of study is developed in consultation with a program adviser to reflect the student's special interests. Typical choices include such subjects as mechanics of solids and fluids, thermodynamics, heat transfer, manufacturing engineering, robotics, kinematics, dynamics and vibrations, controls, and power generation. Nevertheless, the following guidelines must be adhered to: The sequence of courses selected must not be haphazard, but rather show a clearly discernible specialty. All courses must be at the graduate level, i.e., numbered 4000 or higher, with a minimum of (6 pts) 6000-level or higher (lecture) courses included. Every program must contain at least one course in mathematics (APMA or MATH designators), statistics (SIEO or STAT designator) or their equivalent, covering material beyond what the student has taken previously. It should appear early in the sequence in order to serve as a basis for the technical course work. Examples of such courses offered by CVN are APMA E4001: Principles of Applied Mathematics, APMA E4200: Partial Differential Equations I, APMA E4204: Functions of a Complex Variable, and SIEO W4150: Introduction to Probability and Statistics. Out-of-department study is encouraged, but at least five courses should be in mechanical engineering. Only courses with a designation of MECE, IEME, EEME, or MEBM are considered mechanical engineering courses. Courses with any other designation (e.g. ENME) are not mechanical engineering courses, but may be taken as electives. Many courses offered by CVN fit well into this program. Please consult with a program advisor first. Application Fee A processing fee of $200 is required for first time applicants to a graduate degree program. The Graduate Student Services Office will only process applications which are submitted with an application fee. The processing fee is non-refundable.
