Advising

Klipsch Core Classes

In order the provide adequate breadth in the programs of study for our graduate students, the Klipsch School faculty members have identified a set of classes that need to be part of each graduate student's program.  These classes will also help prepare students for the PhD Qualifying Examination if needed.

Students pursuing a MSEE must achieve a C or better on two classes from two different areas of specialization on the following list.  PhD students who completed their MSEE at NMSU must achieve a C or better on three classes from the following list if they did not take three of these classes from the two different areas of specialization as part of their MSEE program at NMSU.  PhD students who completed an MSEE at another university may be required to take one or more of these classes if the student's committee deems it necessary to give the student proper breadth in their program of study.
