Prospective Graduate Students
The graduate programs in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science emphasize the practical applications of electrical and computer sciences and the technological needs of society. The electrical engineering, computer science, and computer engineering programs are designed to prepare students for industry, teaching and research careers. The School offers graduate studies leading to the degrees of Master of Science, Master of Engineering, and Doctor of Philosophy.
Areas of specilization in electrical engineering include communications, computer vision and pattern recognition, networking, signal and image processing, control systems, power systems, electro-optics and non-linear optics, microwaves, antennas and propagation, remote sensing and space systems, circuits and networks, materials and devices, and very-large-scale-integration (VLSI). Faculty members associated with each of these areas have technical interests that overlap with other graduate programs, such that many research projects have a multidisciplinary flavor.
