Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Ph.D.-Electrical Engineering, M.S.- Electrical Engineering

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers both a thesis and non-thesis option master of science degree with a major in electrical engineering. The fundamental difference between the two options is that the non-thesis option substitutes additional coursework in place of the research and writing associated with completing a thesis. While the non-thesis option does not require a formal thesis, students choosing that option will be required to give two technical presentations and to submit a technical paper. In addition to the master of science, a Ph.D. program is also offered in electrical engineering. Advanced degrees in electrical engineering open the door to a wider variety of job opportunities, particularly with regard to consulting, research and development, and positions in academia. Within the department, opportunities for formal study, research, and individual or team projects are available in the following areas: biomedical engineering; communication systems; digital signal processing; computer engineering, computer networks, digital systems, and logical synthesis; robotics and neural networks; image processing and pattern analysis; control systems; fiber optics; electromagnetics; ocean engineering; and instrumentation.
