I know PDE is a must have, what else? Probability and statistics? Complex Analysis? I know most school only requires Cal I, II and III, Then ODE for BSEE only.

In summary, the math requirements for an MSEE and PHDEE vary depending on the department and specialization. Most schools require 4 classes of Applied Math, including PDEs, probability, and statistics. However, for a PhD, there may be no specific course requirements and the advisor and committee have discretion. A minor outside of EE may also require theoretical math courses. For a BS EE, probability and linear algebra are typically required, and it is recommended that students take introductory linear algebra as an elective.

For BS EE you can again look at web sites, but I have never run across a BS EE that did not have to take probability, and the vast majority are required to take linear algebra. In my opinion, any EE program that does not require intro linear algebra is failing their students, and students in those programs should take it as an elective.

The math requirement for MSEE and PHDEE programs is designed to provide students with a strong foundation in mathematical concepts and techniques that are essential for understanding and analyzing complex electrical engineering problems.

The specific math courses required for MSEE and PHDEE programs may vary depending on the institution, but they often include courses in calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, and probability and statistics.

In some cases, AP or transfer credits may be accepted to fulfill the math requirement for MSEE and PHDEE programs. However, it is important to check with the specific institution to ensure that the credits meet the necessary requirements.

The math requirement is crucial for MSEE and PHDEE programs as it provides students with the necessary skills to solve complex engineering problems and conduct research in the field. It also serves as a foundation for more advanced courses in electrical engineering.

Many institutions offer resources such as tutoring services, study groups, and online resources to help students with the math requirement for MSEE and PHDEE programs. It is important for students to take advantage of these resources to ensure their success in the program.
