The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers programs leading to the Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.) and Master of Engineering (M.E.) degrees in electrical engineering. The M.S.E. program is research-oriented and requires a formal research thesis. The M.E. program is coursework-oriented. The programs provide advanced preparation in specialized areas of electrical engineering for recent graduates and working engineers who wish to improve their technical capabilities.
With the Tandy School of Computer Science , the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers a joint Ph.D. program in computer engineering which provides opportunities for advanced specialization and scholarly research in computer engineering and related fields. Visit Graduate Programs in Computer Engineering for information on admission, curricula, and degree requirements for the joint programs in computer engineering.
The mission of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to provide a modern, high quality educational experience for our students. We provide the knowledge and principles on which electrical engineering is founded in order to graduate engineers who are technically competent, creative, articulate, and socially aware.
