*There are several specializations for the Ph.D. program. Click here for more details regarding degree specializations.
Courses and Requirements
Ph.D. (with MS): 24 post-master's credit hours of course work, plus an additional 12 dissertation credits. (A master's degree is considered to be the equivalent of 24 course work credits, so that this course work requirement is the equivalent of 48 credits beyond the bachelor's degree, exclusive of dissertation credits.)
Full details of the doctoral program can be found in the EECE Graduate Student Handbook
Ph.D. (with BS): Direct admission into the Ph.D. program for qualified students with only a BS degree.
48 post-baccalaureate's credit hours of course work, plus an additional 12 dissertation credits. Students must first complete the requirements for the MS degree (i.e. 24 credit hours of course work) before officially continuing in the PhD program. Students may elect, in consultation with their research advisor, to receive the MS degree, and then continue towards the Ph.D. degree. Other requirements are similar to the ones listed above.
