Graduate Programs of Study

The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering offers on-campus graduate programs of instruction and research leading to the degrees of Master of Science (thesis or non-thesis options) and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). The M.S. degree programs may also be earned online.

Instruction is offered and research facilities are available to support graduate study in control systems and robotics, digital signal processing and communications, wireless engineering, electromagnetics modeling and analysis, microelectronics and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), power systems, digital systems, and computer engineering. Additionally, individualized programs that cross the traditional boundaries of engineering, mathematics, and the sciences can be accommodated.

The Department also offers a Graduate Certificate in Power Engineering, which can be earned by completing 12 credit-hours of graduate-level power engineering coursework. The certificate is available to both on-campus and online students.
