The Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (Wireless Networks) is a unique interdisciplinary degree program that prepares graduates for the design and improvement of future wireless networks such as the "Internet of Things." The program combines courses related to radio hardware, transmission techniques, the medium-access control layer, networking, applications and standards.
No more than three courses (maximum 12 units) may be counted at the 400 level — at least 18 adviser-approved units must be taken at the 500 or 600 level. Units to be transferred (maximum 4 with adviser approval) must have been taken prior to taking classes at USC — interruption of residency is not allowed.
This program assumes prerequisite preparation in the area of computer networks. Students who do not meet this requirement or who do not pass a related placement exam will be required to take EE 450 Introduction to Computer Networks.
