Graduate Programs

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department offers the Master of Science (M.S.) degrees in both Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering, and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering. Thesis and non-thesis options are available for the the M.S. degrees. 

In order for a student to become a candidate for a graduate degree in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering, he/she must either have completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering, or have otherwise demonstrated a high scholastic competency in all of the required undergraduate courses for that degree. Specific coursework, thesis, and examination requirements for each degree are listed above.

Outstanding candidates will be considered for Research Assistantships in various Research Areas. For information about currently available graduate research assistantships, contact the graduate faculty member with matching research interests. Teaching Assistantships, Fellowships and other Financial Aid may also be available. All applicants will automatically be considered for any available financial support. No additional application material beyond the application for admission is normally required. For consideration for financial support, completed applications must be received by the Graduate School no later than January 15 for students starting graduate studies in the Fall Semester.

Applicants are evaluated by a number of criteria, including undergraduate GPA, class rank, letters of recommendation and matching research interests. No one criterion determines acceptance.
