BS in Computer Science MS in EE

  1. Oct 17, 2014 #1
    Hello everyone,
    I am currently graduating this December with a BS in Computer Science with a concentration in Systems. However, I want to switch to either Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering for my Masters. Is this possible, and If I am able to get admitted to an EE program would I have to take a numerous amount of prerequisite classes? I really enjoy computer science, but I want to be able to build the hardware and program it too. Another issue is that I live in the Atlanta area and the only EE school I can attend is Georgia Tech. I could attend Auburn University, but I would have to move. I have heard that Georgia Tech is a tough school to get into. My GPA is not that great either; it is 3.2 and my program GPA is a 3.38. I slacked off a lot during my first two years of college, but I have made almost straight As since then. I am just curious if anybody has been in my situation and can offer any advice.

    If this will help with your advise:
    Outside of computer science classes, the most significant classes I have taken would be: Discrete Math, Linear Algebra, Calc 1, Calc 2, and a Trig based Physics. I have also taken Computer Architecture and Intel Assembly.

    Thanks in advance
