Electrical and Computer Engineering (M.S. and Ph.D.)
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is a growing interdisciplinary department with a focus on research and education in a wide variety of sub-disciplines, ranging from image and signal processing to nanoscale engineering.
Microwave and Wireless Engineering (Certificate)
In addition to continued needs for microwave and wireless engineers within the context of military applications, recent years have seen an explosion of demand for these skills in the commercial sector as well. With the availability of relatively inexpensive microwave components and improved digital communications, these opportunities have few limits. Radar, satellite, wireless radio and optical communication, and collision avoidance radar are just a few areas, which utilize microwave technology. The Microwave and Wireless Certificate program is open to students with a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering or physics or with equivalent preparation, including a background in general physics and intermediate circuit theory.
The Signal and Systems track of the Bioengineering Master's program educates biotechnology engineers in (1) analysis and processing of signals with an emphasis on biomedical image processing and image formation and (2) design, control and synthesis of systems for biotechnology (e.g. development of miniaturized devices, circuits and systems, controller design for bioreactors).
Applicants to the graduate program are expected to have a degree at the level of bachelor's or master's in electrical or computer engineering, or a related discipline such as computer science, physics, or mathematics.
All applicants to the Master of Science program are required to select a thesis or non-thesis track on the online application. Applicants selecting the non-thesis track are required to indicate if they would like to apply to the coursework non-thesis track or the project-based non-thesis track in their personal statement. For more information on the distinction between the program options, please be in touch with the department directly.
