Admission Requirements  |  Degree Plan | Frequently Asked Questions ​

Program Intruduction:

The program leading to the degree of Master of Engineering (MEG) in EE provides an opportunity for the students to pursue advanced studies in a particular field of major interest. 

MEG program is designed for students who want to pursue their electrical engineering education beyond the undergraduate level but are looking for an alternative to a thesis-based research program.  

The MEG program consists of a total of 33 credit hours of course work including completion of a supervised project. Students are free to choose among a number of EE & Non-EE courses to complete the program. 

A student in the MEG program must specialize in a certain area of concentration by taking a minimum of 9 credit hours from that area. Also, he must take a minimum of 6 credit hours from different areas of concentration.     

Possible areas of concentration include: Power/Energy Systems, Control Systems, Communications, Signal Processing, Electromagnetics, Electronics, and Digital Systems.

Admission Requirements: 

Applicants to the MEG program in EE must hold a B.S degree in electrical engineering or related fields from an accredited university, with a GPA not less than 2.5 / 4.00 or equivalent, in addition to the general requirements set by the Deanship of Graduate Studies at KFUPM.  

The program consists of 33 credit hours satisfying the following requirements:  

  • ​A minimum of 9 credit hours of letter-grade courses in one area of EE (the area of specialization of the student). 
  • A minimum of 6 credit hours of letter-grade courses in other area(s) within EE.  
  • A minimum of 3 and a maximum of 9 credit hours of technical non-EE (letter-grade) courses. 
  • 3 credit hours of non-technical course (business-related) 
  • 3 credit hours of project work (P/F).  

The condition of letter-grade courses excludes the counting of PASS/FAIL courses towards the minimum requirements in any of the categories. Technical non-EE courses must be taken from the following colleges: College of Engineering Sciences & Applied Engineering, College of Sciences, College of Computer Science & Engineering, and College of Petroleum Engineering & Geosciences. Exceptions require the approval of the EE department.

This program is open only for non-scholarship students. Students on scholarship from KFUPM are not allowed to enroll in this program.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ): 

Q1. I am a part-time student of EE currently enrolled in M.Sc. program. Am I eligible to change to MEG program? 

A1: Yes. Any part time student with a genuine interest in pursuing MEG program is eligible.  

Q2: I have already registered EE 610 (Master Thesis) course. Is there any chance that I can move to MEG program? 

A2: Yes. Any student who is already enrolled for EE 610 can still change to MEG program provided that he accepts No-grade Fail (NF) grade in EE 610 course. NF grade has no effect on the GPA but it will appear in the transcript. 

Q3: What is the procedure of transferring to the new MEG program? 

A3: Transferring to the new MEG program requires initiating change of major request via your portal account. Also, it requires a declaration from the student to accept NF grade in EE 610 course if he already registered it.
