 The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science was formed after the merger of the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2007. The department offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy with majors in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or computer science.

Graduate work leading to the Master of Science with a major in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or computer science may be completed during three semesters of full-time study or two to three years of part-time study.

The departmental graduate committee is responsible for administering, promoting, and advancing the general well-being of the graduate program. Departmental actions regarding a graduate student may be appealed in writing, first to the departmental graduate committee and then to the department faculty. The requirements outlined below provide additional details regarding the graduate program requirements.
