Graduate Degree Programs

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers graduate degree programs leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. Prospective students with strong academic records and an interest in APLab research topics should first contact individual faculty about availability of research assistantship support. RA support is offered only to students pursuing a M.S. degree with thesis or the Ph.D degree.

The listing below provides information on the steps for application for admission, inquiry about financial support, and detailed program descriptions for the M.S. degree with thesis, and the Ph.D. degree.

Graduate Courses in Antennas, Electromagnetics and Systems

Graduate students affiliated with the APLab typically select courses from the following list. These courses are offered in either the Fall or Spring semester, and some are offered every other year. Each graduate student is expected to meet with his/her faculty advisor and develop a coursework plan that relates to the research topic.
