Electrical and Computer Engineering

Field Description

The Ph.D. program is intended to train students for leadership positions in teaching and research. Entering students who already have a master's degree are admitted directly to the Ph.D. program. Before doctoral degree candidates begin the second semester of study, they must take a qualifying examination administered by their Special Committee.

The Master of Engineering (Electrical) program is open to students who hold a baccalaureate (or equivalent) in engineering or science. It is intended primarily for those who plan to practice engineering directly. The M.Eng. program is a thirty-credit program requiring an engineering design project rather than a research thesis. Additional information is available from the M.Eng. office.

Research and study opportunities
Ongoing research activities in electrical engineering involve both theory and experiment, and range from the atomic scale at which solid-state devices are studied to the global dimensions of geophysical plasmas. Projects currently underway concern the properties of materials, the fabrication of devices from these materials, the interconnection of devices to form systems, and the properties of systems, including control systems, computer systems, systems for transmitting power and information, and systems for processing signals and data.

Communications, information theory, signal processing, and power and control.

      Pattern classification, neural networks, and signal processing; energy conversion and power systems; networks, coding, data compression, and information theory; adaptive and nonlinear dynamical systems; image and video processing and compression.



Computer engineering.

      Computer architecture; parallel processing, distributed processing, and computer networks; image processing and computer vision; VLSI design, hardware verification, CAD, and simulation; software technology and applications.
