Master of Science
Doctor of Philosophy
No formal specializations offered; however, students may focus their course work in one or more of the following areas: Signal Processing, Control Theory, Electromagnetic Fields and Waves, Power and Energy Systems, Solid State Devices and Sensor Systems, or Algorithms and Machine Learning.
The master of science and doctor of philosophy degree programs are designed to provide graduate students with both broad fundamental knowledge and up-to-date information on current and emerging technologies. Students may enroll on either a full-time or part-time basis (with the exception of the one-year residency requirement for doctoral students). Doctoral students and research-oriented master’s students engage in research activities under the close supervision of their advisers, gradually learning to become independent researchers. Their projects often are supported by government and industry grants. Courses and research activities make significant use of the department’s extensive laboratory and computer facilities. Graduates find employment in industry, research facilities, government and academia.

Rolling admission; this means you may apply any time before August 1 for fall term admissions (June 1 for international applicants) and December 15 for spring term admissions (October 15 for international applicants). These are the dates by which your applications must be complete, meaning that all required documentation must be received in the Graduate School by these dates.
However, applicants who wish to be considered for merit-based financial aid (graduate assistantships/fellowships), please be aware of the merit-based financial aid deadlines by which all applicant materials must be received by the Graduate School: Fall (August) Term: February 15, Spring (January) Term: November 15, Summer (May) Term: April 15.
Merit-based aid (graduate assistantships/fellowships) is available. Private scholarships may also be available. U.S. citizens and permanent residents may be eligible to apply for need-based federal aid (loans) to help fund their educational expenses as well.
