Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering

For further information about undergraduate degree requirements, please refer to the Graduate Curricular Requirements and the University Catalog Information page.

General Ph.D. requirements apply. The preliminary examination consists of both a written and an oral examination. There is no foreign language requirement. Two semesters of ECE 591, Electrical Engineering Research Colloquium, will be required for on-campus doctoral students.


Outcomes

Students graduating with a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Electrical Engineering will demonstrate:

  1. An in-depth knowledge of the degree subject matter, integrating and building upon the foundation provided by a relevant undergraduate degree;
  2. The ability to do original research and to appropriately and accurately analyze the results;
  3. The ability to communicate professional work in an appropriate format and
  4. An understanding of their responsibility to enhance the quality of life of the global community through the practice of engineering in accordance with the IEEE Code of Ethics.


Assessment Process

Every student is required to write a dissertation and give a final dissertation defense presentation at the end of their degree program.

The student's graduate committee will follow an outcomes assessment rubric through a combination of guided discussion with the degree candidate and in discussion as a committee. The committee will submit a report to the ECE graduate committee, who will assess these results and report to the ECE faculty. The ECE faculty will follow up on ways to close the loop to improve the program.
