Requirements for obtaining an MS or PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering
International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) provides immigration support, advising, travel and cultural information, and more.
The best college town, faculty invested in your success, a blending of the arts and sciences, and a big school that feels small.
Note: We accept applications at all times, but these dates are for priority consideration.
If you are requesting financial support for:
- Summer and fall admission, priority will be given to complete applications received before December 15.
- Spring admission, priority will be given to complete applications before December 1 for domestic applicants, and October 15 for international applicants.
If you are not requesting financial support and are:
- A U.S. citizen
- Applications for admission for the summer or fall semester are due by July 15.
- Applications for admission for the spring semester are due by January 1.
- An international student
- Applications for admissions for the summer or fall semester are due by December 15.
- Applications for admission for the spring semester are due by October 15.
Applications received after the deadline will be considered as funding and capacity allow.
- Priority will be given to applicants who declare a PhD objective. Applicants who do not have an MS degree can declare PhD as their degree objective (they need not complete a MS degree to obtain the PhD degree).
- It is expected that all students will move from departmental support to their advisor’s research grants. In the unlikely event that they do retain departmental funding, preference will be given to students who make good progress toward the PhD degree. Benchmarks for good progress are:
- Maintaining a minimum GPA of 3.25.
- Selecting an advisor by the end of the second semester of study.
- Taking the qualifier in the first spring semester following the semester of admission.
- Passing the qualifier in at most two attempts.
- Passing the comprehensive exam within three years of admission.
- Graduating within eight semesters from admission
Students admitted to the ECE graduate program with undergraduate degrees in computer science, mathematics, or physics will be required to complete the following preparatory undergraduate courses with a grade of B or better. These courses will not count for graduate credit, but will prepare the student for success in the graduate ECE program.
