Brief Overview

This curriculum is designed to educate officers in current electronics and power systems technology and its application to modern naval warfare, particularly as it applies to energy consumption and production. It establishes a broad background of basic engineering knowledge, leading to selected advanced studies in electronic systems and ship power control systems. It will enhance individual performance in all duties throughout a naval career, including operational billets, technical management assignments, and policy making positions, thereby preparing Naval officers for progressively increasing responsibility, including command, both ashore and afloat. U. S. Naval officer students are required to complete the requirements for the MSEE degree as well as certain additional requirements specified by the program sponsor for award of a Navy P-code. Other students are not required to satisfy these additional requirements.

Requirements for Entry

A baccalaureate degree in electrical engineering or closely related field is required. Differential and integral calculus, one year of calculus-based college physics are required. The Engineering Science Program within the ESE curriculum is available for candidates who do not meet all admission requirements. The time required will vary with the candidate's background. Prior to undertaking the program, or as a part of the program, each officer will earn/have earned the equivalent of an accredited BSEE. An APC of 323 is required for direct entry.

Entry Date

Electronic Systems Engineering – Energy Specialty is typically an eight-quarter course of study with entry dates in the fall quarter. If further information is needed, contact the Academic Associate or the Program Officer.

Degree Requirements

Degree Requirements for the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree are met en route to satisfying the educational skill requirements. Subspecialty Completion of this curriculum qualifies an officer as an Engineering Electronics Subspecialist with a subspecialty code 5311P. The curriculum sponsors are the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command and the Navy Energy Coordination Office.
