Graduate Programs

The Department of Electrical Engineering offers courses of study leading to the degrees Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), Master of Science (M.S.), and Master of Engineering (M.E.). Each of the graduate programs has unique benefits that allow our students to specialize in numerous areas of interest. The Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees can be obtained in the fields of Communications and Signal Processing, Solid State Electronics, Optics & Photonics, and Energy Systems. Requirements for each program varies and details can be found within their subsections below.

The Master of Engineering (M.E.) degree with a specialization in Production Management augments the scientific knowledge of an electrical engineer with the skills of a manager. The program's goal is to provide skills to meet the challenges of managing technical teams in highly competitive corporate environments.
The degree of Master of Science (M.S.) in Electrical Engineering comprises an appropriate academic core and a cohesive set of advanced courses, culminating in a thesis, or comprehensive examination.
The Ph.D. program provides an advanced level of study and training for the development of research-level scholars with expertise in human factors, operations research, or production systems.
