The Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy operate on both the Oxford and Jackson campuses. The Schools of Dentistry, Health Related Professionals and Medicine, and the Health Sciences Graduate School, are based in Jackson only. (Additional healthcare programs are available through the School of Applied Sciences on the Oxford campus.) Other than these exceptions, the schools above are on the Oxford campus.

Emphasis - EE (Electromagnetics)

M.S. in Engineering Science


The M.S. in engineering science is offered in a number of emphasis areas: aeroacoustics, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computational hydroscience, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, electromagnetics, environmental engineering, geology, geological engineering, hydrology, mechanical engineering, material science and engineering, and telecommunications.

Course Requirements

A student must complete the requirements for an emphasis area. For most emphasis areas, the degree may be completed as a:

Emphasis - EE (Electromagnetics)


An M.S. in engineering science with emphasis in electromagnetics prepares a student with advanced technical knowledge and communication skills for pursuing a career in industry, engineering research and development, public service, or for doctoral work.

Course Requirements

The M.S. with emphasis in electromagnetics can be taken as a thesis or nonthesis option. Either option requires 10 semester hours of core courses in electromagnetics theory and applications: Numerical Methods in Electromagnetics (Engr 626); Advanced Electrodynamics (Engr 721); Passive Microwave Circuits (Engr 723); and Seminar (Engr 695).

Also required are 8 semester hours in specific areas of electromagnetics, including microwave circuits, antennas, electromagnetics, and computational electromagnetics courses (from among Engr 590, Engr 593, Engr 622, Engr 624, Engr 627, Engr 687, Engr 691, Engr 693 (no more than 2 semester hours), Engr 719, Engr 725, Engr 728, and Engr 699).

For the thesis option, the student must complete 6 hours of electives, including 3 to 6 hours in a minor field. The thesis candidate must take at least 6 hours of thesis.

For the nonthesis option, the student also must complete 9 hours of electives, including 3 to 6 hours as a minor from mathematics, physics, or another area with approval, and technical electives from the areas listed above. The nonthesis candidate also must complete a 3-hour project or research course with written report and oral presentations, and a final oral exam.

Other Academic Requirements

For either option, a candidate must pass a final oral examination.
