What will I learn?

The ECE Department is dedicated to improving life through discovery, education and innovation. We embrace an open culture and offer our students unique forward-looking curricula, low student-to-faculty ratios and highly talented and dedicated professors, instructors and mentors. Our graduate courses cover a full breadth of areas, including core foundational topics as well as focused special offerings in the latest technologies.

Course Requirements

In addition to Graduate Studies requirements for the master's degrees, the department also requires at least one credit hour of graduate seminar ECE 590. Other program information is available at the Electrical and Computer Engineering department Web site.

Plan I: Among the required courses (a minimum of 15 credit hours in ECE), there must be four courses specified by the area of focus chosen by the student. Candidates for the Plan I M.S. must also satisfactorily pass the thesis defense.

Plan III: Among the required courses (a minimum of 18 credit hours in ECE), there must be four courses specified by the area of focus chosen by the student.

Microelectronics

Microelectronics is a field in electronics that utilizes small components to manufacture electronic circuits. As demand for small and less-expensive devices grows, the field continues to expand. The main areas of focus generally are on pressing issues in high-performance VLSI circuit design and electronic design automation (EDA) in light of the aggressively scaled process geometries in modern MOS technologies. The research in this area includes VLSI circuit design, reconfigurable computing, emerging nanostructure devices, design for manufacturability, fault tolerance systems, three-dimensional integration, optoelectronic devices, embedded systems, and hardware security.
