The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers graduate programs in selected specialty areas leading to the M.Engr., M.S., and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Current departmental research expertise falls into one of the following areas:
- Biomedical Engineering
- Communications/Signal Processing
- Computer Architecture
- Cyber-Physical and Embedded Systems
- Power/Power Electronics
Research Facilities and Equipment
The department is housed in a modern, well-equipped building. Graduate students have access to laboratories, instrument rooms, and computer services ranging from the university computer system to departmental computers. Research facilities include cardiovascular engineering lab, computer architecture lab, digital systems lab, EMI shield room, power and power electronics lab, signal processing and systems lab, and printed circuit lab.
We recommend you contact potential advisors in the ECE program. Please click here to look at each faculty's website. You may contact a faculty member working in a research area in which you are interested in pursuing your graduate studies.
If you have not secured a potential advisor, you are eligible for admission with a GRE score of at least 145 Verbal and 155 Quantitative, and a minimum GPA of 3.0 on your latest Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering degree, either B.S. or M.S. The GRE subject area test is not required. To be admitted as an ECE M.E. student, you must have a GRE score of at least 145 Verbal and 155 Quantitative and a minimum GPA of 3.0 on your Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering B.S. degree.
The 3.0 minimum GPA admission requirement may be waived for M.E. students with substantial ECE industry experience.
The department has a limited number of both teaching and research assistantships available. These assistantships provide a monthly salary during the academic year, a waiver of graduate base tuition during the academic year and summer, but do not cover the minimal activity fee. In addition, there are opportunities, both in the department and on the campus, to perform part-time work as graders, teachers, tutors, and consultants. These assistantships are awarded on a competitive basis -- typically at the time of admission for the fall semester.
