Electrical and Computer Engineering Graduate Program
Part-time or full-time Master's and Ph.D. programs available
No formal specializations offered; however, students may focus their course work in one or more of the following areas:
- Control Systems and System Integration
- Computing Systems Hardware and Software
- Electromagnetics and Remote Sensing
- Micro- and Nano-Systems and Sensors
- Power Electronics and Energy Systems
- Signal Processing and Computer Vision
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.

Requirements and course work can be found on the Graduate School bulletin.
