The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science is a vibrant academic and research community of scholars.
We encourage you to become familiar with the research areas in the Department, to reach out to our faculty for support, and to become actively engaged in the Department community. One way we encourage our students to become involved is by attending the colloquium series we hold throughout the academic year. This is an opportunity to learn about advances in the academic community and to network with faculty and students from across campus.
We are committed to helping you achieve your career goals. Students can take full advantage of what the University has to offer by learning about the graduate resources available in the College and the campus resources available at the University.
For the most current information about your particular degree of study, you can refer to the Graduate Course Catalog.
The Graduate School maintains a checklist of Graduate Requirements that all graduate students should be familiar with to ensure they are on track for degree completion. This site also has many necessary forms, dates and deadlines, and access to resources.
For international students looking to gain work experience, Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is designed to provide work experience directly related and integral to a student’s degree of study. While it is not intended for general, ongoing work authorization it can help students build their professional network during their time as a student. For more important information about the department’s Curricular Practical Training, please refer to the CPT Departmental Policy.
