Electrical and Computer Engineering Graduate Programs
Master of Science in Electrical Engineering
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE). This research-oriented academic degree is appropriate either as a terminal degree or in preparation for doctoral studies in Electrical and Computer engineering.
The MSEE program consists of coursework and research in advanced Electrical and Computer engineering topics, with focus areas in Microelectronics, Wireless Communications, Electromagnetics, Controls and High-Power Batteries, Programmable Logic, Computer Architecture, Embedded Systems, Digital Signal Processing, and Electric Power. Graduate students can pursue their MSEE degree via independent study projects in on-going interdisciplinary research programs or work as research assistants on sponsored research projects. Courses at the graduate level are often offered in the late afternoon or evening to enable students from local industry to complete their studies.
P.h.D in Engineering - Electrical Engineering
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) program. The Ph.D. degree is conferred on students who have demonstrated substantial quality work and achievements in a specific field of research in ECE, technical competence, and communications skills. Working under supervision of highly qualified faculty, Ph.D. students develop the skills and the ability to become independent researchers and make original contributions to the field. The degree is conferred after the student has satisfied both coursework and dissertation requirements. The Ph.D. program in ECE started in 1987 as a coordinated program with the ECE program at the University of Colorado Boulder, although presently, these programs run independently. Over the past 25 years, the ECE Department at UCCS has graduated hundreds of Ph.D. students who work in academia, industry, as well as innovators and venture capitalists. They are all well employed in by leading companies such as Qualcomm, Broadcom, INTEL, Infineon, IBM, TSMC, ASM Lithography, and Microchip. The Ph.D. program in the ECE department is continuously supported by NSF, ONR, NIST, NASA, DOE, ARO, GM, FORD, CUMINs and several small companies.
