Program Handbook

The goal of the doctoral program in the Department of Electrical Engineering is to educate the next generation of innovative engineers, through coursework, research, and a culminating student dissertation. Graduates go on to careers in academia and industry, and faculty, students, and alumni regularly publish in leading engineering publications. Research in the department is broadly divided into two areas: electronic circuits and systems and electronic materials and devices, with further concentrations available in each.
