The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers academic programs in advanced study to graduates with technical background in preparation for careers in industry and in academic research. In addition to the doctoral and master's degrees, which are granted in recognition of research contribution and course work, the department offers a number of professional master's degrees and certificate programs to enable practicing engineers to pursue continuing education in their areas of interest.
Certificate programs provide a student with knowledge in an area of specialization within electrical and computer engineering. Students in these programs register as certificate non-degree seeking students. Certificates are granted upon completion of all course requirements in the chosen specialization area, as listed below with a minimum GPA of 3.0. Certificate programs must be completed within five years.
It is the student's responsibility to meet all course prerequisites. Any student admitted to a master's degree program offered by the department may apply coursework completed in the certificate program toward the master's degree requirements.
