Programs of Study
The Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the
School of Engineering offer Programs of study leading to the Master
of Science (M.S.) and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Degrees.
The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department is a growing
interdisciplinary engineering department with a focus on research
and education in a wide variety of sub-disciplines, ranging from
image and signal processing to nanoscale engineering. The department
gives students a unique perspective on how electrical and computer
technology can be used to solve important human problems. With
expert faculty, cutting-edge research, and innovative facilities,
our students are given the opportunity and resources to make
significant contributions to the field and become leaders in
industry, government, and academia.
The department has particular strengths in the areas of VLSI design,
signal processing, communication theory, electro-optics, and
microwave, with newer facilities for research in emerging areas of
biotechnology, nanotechnology and computer engineering.
In addition to our own expertise, other departments in the School of
Engineering offer programs in distinctive specialties, including
environmental health, hazardous materials management, product
engineering, human factors, multimedia, and biomedical optics.
The School of Engineering also offers an cross-departmental,
interdisciplinary bioengineering master's program that
provides a broad engineering and biotechnology curriculum, while
offering a focus on a specific engineering track that best fits
students' interests and career choices. This combination gives our
bioengineering graduates professional flexibility, a distinct
competitive advantage in the ever-changing field of bioengineering.
The department participates in two Joint-Ph.D. programs: One in
Materials Science and Engineering and one in
The Graduate School also offers an interdisciplinary doctoral
program that allows students to devise their course of study.
