College of Engineering at New Mexico State University is now offering a complete master's degree program in elec- trical and computer engineering via the Internet. One graduate course is offered this summer and five more are scheduled for fall 2010. "This is not a new degree program. It's the same curriculum, same instructors, same course re- quirements and same coursework that on-campus students experi- ence," said Paul Furth, interim head of the Klipsch School of Electrical and Computer Engi- neering. "The only difference is the delivery." The distance education pro- gram was developed specifically to accommodate the needs of working engineers who cannot attend classes on campus due to UNM to scheduling and travel. "People who are employed can n'ow conveniently benefit from graduate-level education," said Furth. The entire 30-credit, coursework-only master's of sci- ence in electrical engineering can be taken remotely (with the ex- ception of one half-day exam, the MSEE coursework oPtiOn final exam, which must be taken on- site). Alternately, students may choose to complete 27 credits of online coursework, a three-credit technical report with a graduate advisor and an oral exam, which must be taken on-site. "This option allows the stu- dent the opportunity to choose a project that aligns well with their job duties. It's a win-win. Several graduate students employed with power companies have been do- receive more than Clinical and Translational ing this for some time:' said Furth. Distance education courses are offered in five key areas! elec- tric energy systems, digital com- municationS, digital signal pro- cessing, space systems and telemetering. Control Systems Synthesis I (EE 551) will be offered for the summer session, beginning May 27." The deadline for registration and course addition for summer session is June 4. Five electrical and computer engineering courses will be offered via dis- tance education for the fall 2010 semester. Admissions standards and procedures for the online MSEE program are identical to the regu- lar on-site program.
