Department of

Electrical Engineering

Serving society through excellence in education, research, scholarship, and public outreach



Graduate Program

The graduate program in Electrical Engineering emphasizes the practical application of electrical sciences and technology to the needs of society. The program is designed to help prepare students for industry, teaching, and research careers. The department offers graduate studies leading to the degrees of Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy, with specialization areas in communications, computer vision and pattern recognition, networking, signal and image processing, control systems, power systems, electro-optics and non-linear optics, microwaves, antennas and propagation, remote sensing and space systems, circuits and networks, materials and devices, and VLSI. Faculty members associated with each of these areas have technical interests that overlap with other graduate programs, such that many research projects have a multidisciplinary flavor.

Currently, we have 84 master's degree students and 137 Ph.D. students.

We welcomed 59 new graduate students last Fall from the following countries: China, India, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey, and the United States.
