There are two types of doctoral degrees, the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and the Doctor of Engineering (D.Eng.). The former is more research oriented while the latter is more industrially oriented. The primary difference between the two types of doctoral degrees is the requirement of 9 management credits for the D.Eng degrees. There may also be differences in the content of the dissertations.
The primary goal of the Ph.D. and D.Eng. in Electrical and Computer Engineering is to provide a research intensive program with the rigorous course work to strengthen the student's knowledge in the fundamentals of Electrical and Computer Engineering. A secondary goal for Doctor of Engineering Program is for them to develop an appreciation for the social and economic issues connected with the operation of a modern high technology enterprise. The programs include advanced graduate coursework in Electrical/Computer Engineering and allied subjects, a non-technical component (in the case of the Doctor of Engineering programs), and research culminating in a doctoral dissertation.
A complete description of the doctoral programs are found in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Doctoral Student Handbook which is updated annually and available from the department office.
Plan of Study
Each student entering the program must develop a plan of study in consultation with his/her advisor.
One year of full-time residence is required of all students in the program.
The time for graduation for full-time students is expected to range from a minimum of three and a half years to a maximum of five years after BS Engineering and a minimum of two and a half years to a maximum of four years after MS Engineering.
