The Holcombe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Clemson University offers the Master of Science (MS), the Master of Engineering (MEngr) and the PhD degrees in electrical engineering. Among the ECE faculty are nine IEEE Fellows, two name professors and six named professorships. In addition, several of the department's young faculty members have recently won prestigious national and international awards and grants. The department offers a rich curriculum which includes more than seventy graduate courses. The ratio of students to faculty is low, and the department prides itself on observing the Clemson tradition of close interaction between faculty and students.
Clemson is classified by the Carnegie Foundation as a Doctoral/Research University-Extensive, a category comprising less than 4 percent of all universities in America.
