The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering offers graduate programs leading to a master of science (MS) degree in either electrical engineering or computer engineering and a doctor of philosophy (PhD) degree in electrical engineering, with options in either electrical engineering or computer engineering.

The department also offers a choice of certificate programs, which provide specific career benefits to working professionals. These courses are compatible with degree requirements, if students later decide to transition to a degree program.

Individuals may also enroll in graduate courses as non-degree students without applying for admission to a graduate or certificate program, when space is available and with permission of the instructor.
