ECE Graduate Programs

Students may customize and focus their Masters in Engineering Degree or Doctor of Philosophy Degree through selection of the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Emphasis Area.  The ECE Area of Emphasis is intended for students wishing to pursue a graduate degree in areas related to electrical and computer engineering. The ECE school has expertise in three broad areas: Control Systems, Electronics and Photonics, and Cyber-Physical Systems. Students will take courses and perform research in these areas providing them with the necessary skills to pursue both industrial and academic careers in cutting edge fields of engineering. The area of emphasis is indicated on the student’s transcript.

Admission to the Emphasis

In addition to College of Engineering admission requirements for the M.S. or Ph.D., students entering with a B.S. degree from disciplines other than ECE should have taken Calculus through Differential Equations, Introductory Physics with Calculus (Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism, Optics, and Modern Physics), Circuits, Introductory Programming, and Linear Systems (or equivalent).  Students without the necessary engineering background can be accepted but must take remedial coursework in addition to the degree and emphasis requirements.
