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 advisor, 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:
- MEMS, nanoelectronics, sensors and actuators, structural health monitoring systems
- Bio-Nano interface, medical electronics, bio-sensors, bio-separation systems, implantable nano-devices for diagnostics and treatment
- Systems Controls, Microprocessors, Nonlinear Modern Control, Robotics, Biomedical Signal Processing and Instrumentation.
- Remote Sensing, Electromagnetic Fields, Propagation, Scattering, and Microwave Systems.
Optics, Electro-optics and Lasers.
Microelectronics and Semiconductors Microwave, Millimeter-wave and Optoelectronic Devices and Integrated Circuits.
Digital Signal Processing, Digital Image Processing, vision Systems, Neural Networks, and Flight Simulation.
Information Transmission and Communication Systems.
Energy Systems Efficient Operation and Planning; Generation and Transmission, Conversion and Distribution.
Applied Physical Electronics Pulse Electronics, High Power Optical Electronics, Laser Applications and Diagnostics.
