Programs of Study
Applications for admission and financial aid for both domestic
and international candidates should be submitted no later than
May 15 for fall enrollment, and September 15 for spring
enrollment. Applicants to the graduate program are expected to have
a degree at the level of Bachelor or Master in electrical or
computer engineering, or a related discipline such as computer
science, physics, or mathematics.
Foreign students must submit their Test of English as a Foreign
Language (TOEFL) scores. Tufts University's reporting code is 3901.
All applications are reviewed by ECE faculty in the area of study requested by the applicant. The faculty first determines if the applicant's background is acceptable. The faculty must also determine the availability of an advisor and the resources needed to support the graduate student. On this basis, the faculty recommends or does not recommend the applicant for admission. Recommendations for admission from the faculty are reviewed and confirmed by the ECE Graduate Affairs Committee as well as the ECE Department Chair and recommendations are made to the Associate Dean of Graduate Education. A letter from the Associate Dean of Graduate Education announcing the decision and detailing the subsequent actions required is mailed to the applicant. The accepted applicant is required to sign and return a form, or reply online to accept the offer of admission and to indicate that the conditions of the acceptance are understood. Offers of admission or of admission with financial assistance which are not accepted by the applicant in a timely manner will be withdrawn.
Information on tuition and fees for each program is provided in
Graduate School Handbook. The department does not grant
financial aid (tuition scholarships or teaching or research
assistantships) who do not have full-time appointments. Information
concerning policies and procedures of the ECE department including
advancement to candidacy, requirements of the MS and PhD programs
can be found in the
ECE Graduate Student Handbook.

Both the School of Engineering and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering schedule mandatory orientation programs in late August or early September for students who are entering Tufts during the Fall semester. Failure to attend these programs may jeopardize the student's financial assistance or make registration more cumbersome. Students entering a graduate program in the spring semester must make arrangements through their advisors to receive pertinent information and orientation on an individual basis. They may be required to attend some or all of the orientation programs in the first August/September following their matriculation.
Each student should schedule a meeting with his/her academic advisor as soon as possible after arrival on campus. At this meeting, the following points should be discussed:
