|About the Graduate Program|
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers multidisciplinary programs leading to M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering. Our students are provided with breadth of knowledge in Electrical and Computer Engineering and depth of knowledge in their chosen research area. The department is staffed with a prestigious faculty conducting research in various areas that include:
A full range of state-of-the-art laboratories are available enabling faculty and students to conduct research at the cutting edge of technology.
The Ph.D. program is designed to provide the students with research-level expertise in a focus area within electrical and computer engineering and breadth of knowledge in areas related to the focus area. In addition to taking a set of courses in a chosen area of concentration, a key aspect of the doctoral degree is the student's research dissertation. Each dissertation is expected to be a significant original contribution on research on a chosen subject, which usually leads to one or more archival publications. Successful doctoral students develop the aptitude and confidence for generating new knowledge and practices in academic, industrial, and governmental environments.
The MSEE program is designed to provide technical expertise in a specific area of electrical and computer engineering as well as breadth of knowledge in supporting areas. The MSEE program requires successful completion of 30 credits at the graduate level. Both thesis and non-thesis options are available for the MSEE program:
o Non-thesis project option: This requires the completion of a 3-credit individual research project and taking 27 credits of graduate level courses.
o Non-thesis exam option: This requires the completion of 30 credits of graduate level courses along with satisfactory performance in a comprehensive final examination.
