The graduate programs in Electrical and Computer Engineering are designed to prepare students for a broad range of careers by providing a foundation of study in several technical areas. Your course of study will be individualized to suit your interests, with intensive training in numerous specializations, such as all aspects of computer engineering, control systems, signal processing and communications, information assurance, VLSI, microelectronics, electro-optics, and power/energy.
The Master's of Science (MS) degree program prepares students for development-oriented engineering careers and/or continuation onto doctoral studies by providing a balance of advanced theory and practical engineering knowledge. The typical time for completion of the MS is 18–24 months of full-time study.
The Master's of Engineering (MEng) program prepares students for careers in professional practice. The MEng degree program requires no thesis or project and can be completed in 12 months of full-time study. It can also be taken entirely online through EngiNet. The flexibility of the MEng program makes it especially well-suited to part-time students who seek to enhance their job marketability by extending their skills beyond the BS degree.
The doctoral degree (PhD) program is a research-focused program that prepares students for research and development careers in corporate, academic, and/or research lab environments.
Doctoral graduate placements include: Senior Design Engineer at Global Foundries, Senior Staff Engineer at Toshiba, Software Engineer at Facebook Inc., Assistant Professor at East Kentucky University, and Post-Doctoral Fellowship at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
