M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering University of Texas at Austin




Course info


The objective of the faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and its Graduate Studies Committee is to provide a graduate program that is both broad and deep, covering the diverse technical areas within electrical and computer engineering. Nine named academic tracks within the program support this objective: Architecture, Computer Systems, and Embedded Systems; bioECE; Decision, Information and Communications Engineering; Electromagnetics and Acoustics; Energy Systems; Integrated Circuits and Systems; Plasma/Quantum Electronics and Optics; Software Engineering and Systems; and Solid-State electronics. In each academic track, a program of study can be designed to meet the educational objectives of each student.

Areas of Study

Graduate courses and research are offered with varying degrees of specialization in the following named academic tracks. Topics of specialization within each track reflect the research interests of the faculty.

Architecture, Computer Systems, and Embedded Systems: Computer architecture is at the interface of computer hardware and software. Its practitioners are responsible for specifying, designing, and implementing at the architecture level the hardware structures that carry out the work specified by computer software. Computer architects share the responsibility for providing mechanisms that algorithms, compilers, and operating systems can use to enhance the performance and/or energy requirements of running applications.

Electromagnetic and Acoustics: This track includes the study of electromagnetic and acoustic phenomena ranging from ultralow frequencies to the visible spectrum. The activities in electromagnetic involve research in antenna design, radar scattering, computational methods, wave-matter interaction, bioelectromagnetics, wave manipulation using artificial materials, wireless propagation channels, microwave and millimeter-wave integrated circuits, guided wave devices and systems, electromagnetic forces (including electrostrictive and magnetostrictive forces), and Maxwell's stress tensor.

Energy Systems: This track involves research in the production, distribution, conversion, and use of electric energy. Present investigations are concerned with renewable and alternative energy, advanced electrical machines, power system-related analyses, simulation of power systems, energy system economics and optimization, open-access transmission, electricity markets, energy efficiency and demand-side management, power system harmonics, power quality, distributed generation, power electronics, electromagnetic levitation, intelligent machines and drives for robotics and control, and electromechanical devices for pulsed power applications.

Integrated Circuits and Systems: This track involves all aspects of analysis, design, synthesis, and implementation of digital, analog, mixed-signal, and radio frequency (RF) integrated circuits and systems for applications in computing, sensing, and communications. Research in the area spans levels of abstraction from devices to systems-on-chip (SoC), and involves transceiver architectures, data converters, signal processing systems, integrated bio-chips, high-performance and low-power design, fault tolerance, design for manufacturability (DFM), design for test (DFT), verification, and computer-aided design (CAD).
