Graduate Programs

Pursuit of research excellence and practical application are guiding principles of the graduate curriculum at the University of Idaho and in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering Program.

Classes are large enough to create the necessary creative interchange among students and faculty; at the same time, they are small enough to allow continual interaction between student and teacher.

The Department of Electrical Engineering, through the College of Graduate Studies, has the sole state-wide responsibility for offering Master of Science (M.S.) and Master of Engineering (M.Engr.) degrees in both electrical engineering and computer engineering, and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in electrical engineering.

The Master of Science degree is the option taken by on-campus students who will pursue writing a thesis, whereas the Master of Engineering is the non-thesis option usually pursued by off-campus students.

Areas of emphasis for the graduate student in Electrical Engineering include very large scale integrated (VLSI) circuits, supercomputing, microwaves, communication systems, integrated circuit design, electromagnetics, control systems, signal analysis, network synthesis, digital systems design, and electric power systems.

Emphasis areas for the graduate student in Computer Engineering are digital hardware design, digital systems design, computer systems, and other related areas.

Candidates for graduate degrees have ample opportunities to work with faculty members on practical research projects vital to industry, including engineering prototypes of varying complexity. Whether the graduate is returning to college from industry, or continuing straight from an undergraduate program, students will find the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering an important stop in their educational endeavors.

Why Computer Engineering?

Develop high-level hardware and software knowledge, refined research skills and strong industry connections you need to help develop the next generation of computer innovations. More
