Electrical and Computer Engineering

Electrical and Computer Engineering is the creative application of engineering principles and methods to the design and development of hardware and software systems. The M.S and Ph.D. programs encompass the design, development, testing, and evaluation of hardware and software components, as well as integrated systems and networks. Broad focus areas in ECE are computer engineering, communications and networks, signal and information processing, and electronic circuits and systems. Research in Electrical and Computer Engineering strives to achieve innovative functionality and higher performance in electronic systems and components, algorithms, and computing.

Electrical and Computer Engineering MS

The M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering provides a student greater breadth and depth within the field, preparing them for positions in industry or for additional study. While a B. S. degree provides a strong, broad foundation, the M.S. degree provides a greater degree of specialization in one of our technical concentration areas. Students can select the thesis option that includes a multiple-semester research project or a non-thesis option.

Electrical and Computer Engineering PhD

The Ph.D. program prepares students for research and/or teaching careers in industry, at universities, or in government agencies. Students work closely with an ECE faculty member, performing research that leads to their doctoral dissertation (thesis). The program develops the student's ability to recognize and formulate research problems, apply theoretical and/or experimental techniques to develop a solution, and to transmit the results to the scientific and engineering community.
