Clarkson/National Grid Master’s of Science in Electrical Engineering with a concentration in Electric Power
A cohort based, distance program
A Partnership to Shape our Future
National Grid and Clarkson are forming a partnership to provide a 2.5 year, cohort based program of study in electric power engineering that will lead to a Clarkson Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree (MS-EE). The program consists of 30 total graduate credits, including 6 required courses, 3 elective courses in electrical engineering or related areas, 2 credits of seminar in power related areas, and a 1 credit hour project. Cohort students will also meet the requirements of Clarkson’s Advanced Certificate in Power Systems Engineering at the completion of the full MS-EE degree program.
The initial required course sequence will be presented in 6 consecutive quarter terms (10 week segments), with one course per term for the first 18 months. The elective courses portion will be given over a 12 month period following the required course sequence.
The courses will be presented in an asynchronous mode (where you view that week’s lecture on your own schedule), with lectures available for viewing over a web interface. The course instructor will be available to students, through a variety of technologies suitable for the course content. Several of the courses and the seminar may include occasional live-online meetings scheduled on a Saturday.
The National Grid Cohort Manager must provide you with a link to apply. You will need to submit a resume and unofficial transcripts from all higher education institutions attended. The GRE is not required, and Clarkson will accept a single reference letter from the National Grid’s Cohort Manager for all program participants. Admission is subject to meeting Clarkson’s admission standards.
Once admitted, you will need to have official transcripts sent from your institution to Clarkson’s Registrar.
