The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers graduate programs leading to a Master of Science in Engineering (Computer) and to a Master of Science in Engineering (Electrical).
These programs are designed to prepare students for advanced-level graduate study in electrical and computer engineering or professional practice. They provide opportunities for engineering graduates to enhance their background in engineering science analysis and design. Courses are offered in the areas of digital design, control systems, signal processing, real-time embedded systems, instrumentation, communications, computer architecture, and power electronics.
- Satisfy the general admission requirements of the Graduate College.
- Possess a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering from an ABET accredited program in the U.S. or a reputable overseas school as certified by the WMU office of International Student Services.
- Have a grade point average of 3.0 or better (A=4) in the last two years of undergraduate work.
- Submit results of the GRE General Test.
A student with a bachelor’s degree in computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics, or science can be considered for probationary admission into the M.S.E. (Electrical) or the M.S.E. (Computer) program with full admission granted after completing undergraduate courses in electrical engineering or computer engineering specified by the department.
The department offers the Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical and Computer Engineering. A student’s doctoral program of study will consist of approved graduate course work, independent research, examinations, and dissertation preparation and defense. The admission and program requirements are listed below.
