The course offerings provide the student with an opportunity to broaden as well as to intensify his or her knowledge in a number of areas of electrical engineering. The student, with the aid of a faculty adviser, may plan a program in any one of a number of fields of specialization within electrical engineering or from the offerings of related departments in science and engineering.
Graduate study and research are offered in the areas of:
- VLSI and Digital Systems
- Systems, Controls, and Robotics: Systems, Controls, Manufacturing, Discrete Event Control, Neural and Fuzzy Control, Nonlinear Modern Control, Biomedical Signal Processing and Instrumentation.
- Electromagnetic Fields and Applications: Remote Sensing, Electromagnetic Fields, Propagation, Scattering, Radiation, and Microwave Systems.
- Microelectronics, Nanoelectronics and Semiconductor Devices: Semiconductor Theory, Microwave Devices and Circuits, Analog Electronics.
- Digital Signal Processing, Digital Image Processing: Vision Systems, Neural Networks, Statistical Signal Processing, Nonlinear Image Processing, Virtual Prototyping, and Virtual Environments
- Communications: Information Transmission and Communication Systems
- Energy Systems: Efficient Operation, Generation, Transmission, Distribution, Deregulation; Power Electronics Engineering.
- Optical Devices and Systems: Optics Electro-optics, Diffractive Optics, Nonlinear Optics, and Lasers.
The program is designed to satisfy the needs of students pursuing master's and doctoral degrees and to provide for the student seeking to increase knowledge in areas of electrical engineering related to engineering practice. The courses offered will provide practicing engineers with advanced, up-to-date education in electrical engineering.
The Electrical Engineering Graduate Program, in fulfillment of its responsibility to graduate highly qualified professional engineers has established certain policies and procedures. In addition to the requirements of the Graduate School, to continue in the program each electrical engineering graduate student must maintain at least a B (3.0) GPA in all electrical engineering coursework and at least a B (3.0) GPA in all coursework.
