hey guys

im currently an applied math major, with a CS minor, about to enter my 4th year. I am thinking i'd like to work in robotics maybe, and might be considering getting masters-level education in EE, or systems engineering. is this an easy transition, from applied math, to engineering? what additional courses would i need to take?

thanks

If you want an MSEE, you need to take essentially all the courses of a BSEE.

oh yea, the applied math major requires that i take
1 year of engineering physics (mechanics, E&M) which is the same as EE's take
i took 2 years of programming
and as elective i have taken control systems, and DSP

am i looking at more than a year of catch up work before i can get the MSEE?

Yes, to get a BSEE you need more than 2 year of programming and 2 electives. You should look at the BSEE requirements in your university to see where you have to catch up.
