Resources and Procedures

The Graduate Bulletin and Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Graduate Student Handbook contain policies and procedures for the department's graduate programs. Questions should be directed to the department director of graduate studies.

Marquette University’s Electrical and Computer Engineering department offers graduate degrees and certificates to interested students. We offer a master’s degree and a doctoral degree, as well as non-degree certificates. We also offer 5-year B..S/M.S. and 5-year B.S.-Physics/M.S. degrees to qualified undergraduates.

EECE graduate program assessment plan

The purpose of this page is to provide information on the assessment process for the Electrical and Computer Engineering department’s graduate programs.

Each of the three graduate programs administered by the department (thesis M.S., non-thesis M.S., Ph.D.) has an associated Program Learning Outcomes (PLO) assessment plan document, which outlines expected performance indicators, measurement techniques, and responsible parties. The department also utilizes three assessment rubrics to judge the quality of thesis and dissertation presentations.

The Director of Graduate Studies is responsible for collecting the required information annually and putting the information together into an annual assessment report. The report summarizes the relevant data and makes appropriate observations and recommendations regarding the success of the department’s graduate programs in achieving the expected learning outcomes for its students. The report is distributed to the graduate committee and the department chairperson, who meet annually to discuss the recommendations and decide on any program, course, or assessment process changes that are needed to better implement the department’s programs or better accomplish the department’s educational mission.

The following measures are used to assess the department’s overall success in achieving desired Program Learning Outcomes:

  • Oral communication, written communication and research strength rubrics
  • Student scores in EECE 6010 and EECE 6020
  • Results of Written Qualifying Examination
  • Number of conference presentations given by students
  • Number of conference publications and journal publications by students
  • Graduate student survey
  • Employer survey (employers of part-time M.S. students attending through corporate tuition reimbursement programs)


*There is a new bulletin edition for each academic year. The Marquette University bulletins outline current policies for all students and curricular requirements for those students entering Marquette in a given academic year. Refer to the section on how to use the bulletin for more information.

Electrical and Computer Engineering

Electrical engineers work on the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity and how we use it. Computer engineers design and build the hardware and software that run our global marketplace. Think about the gadgets you plug into on a daily basis. How many of them are powered by electricity or computer technology?
