With expert faculty, cutting-edge research, and innovative facilities, electrical and computer engineering doctoral students at Tufts have the opportunity and resources to make significant contributions to the field and become leaders in industry, government, and academia.
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.
Past dissertations have explored solid-state materials with an emphasis on optoelectronic and solar energy applications, microwave devices and systems, microwave thermography, electromagnetics, antennas, plasma physics, small computers, microprocessor applications, computer architecture, multiprocessing, VLSI design, VLSI CAD, microelectronics, communications systems, information theory, signal processing, digital electronics, Fourier optics, coherence theory, image analysis, nonlinear optics, and circuit theory.
Tufts electrical and computer engineers go on to great things. Some are entrepreneurs, founding or working at start-ups. Others are pursuing careers at some of the world's leading technology companies, like Google, Amazon Robotics, Fitbit, Nest, and Intel, or have used their engineering education in different industries altogether, going to work for Fidelity Investments and the New York Stock Exchange.
Applicants to the doctoral program in electrical and computer engineering 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.
