Что я буду изучать?

Electrical and Computer Engineering graduate students have the opportunity to work with an advisor in one of twelve research areas in the department. While a specific topic of focus is expected, the research conducted in many of the areas is interdisciplinary. This gives students experience with other facets of electrical and computer engineering, and engineering physics. The twelve areas of research in ECE include: biomedical engineering; communications; computer engineering; control systems; electromagnetics and microwaves; energy systems; integrated circuits and systems; microsystems and nanodevices; photonics and plasmas; signal and image processing; software engineering and intelligent systems; solid state electronics.

Program Requirements

Students are required to complete a minimum of ★18.5 in coursework and a thesis.


  • Six ★3 graduate-level courses
    • Course requirements depend upon individual circumstances and must be approved by the Associate Chair – Graduate Program.
    • Emphasis is on research leading to a thesis of high calibre.
    • The student’s supervisory committee will recommend courses to be taken by the student to make up for course deficiencies and to support thesis research.
  • ENGG 600 (★0.5)- Engineering Ethics and Integrity
  • Additional coursework may be required

Ethics Requirement

Engineering students meet their ethics requirement through ENGG 600 and the FGSR Graduate Ethics Training (GET) course.

Professional Development Requirement

Engineering students must meet their Professional Development requirement through the completion of two courses, registration for which is through eClass. Contact the Department for further information.

Candidacy Exam
