Doctoral Degrees in Electronics in North America 2017. Program Overview Students in the doctoral program in electrical engineering conduct research in a variety of areas with the department's world-class faculty. Students can choose from the following six areas of focus: communications and networks; electrical power and energy; electromagnetics, radiation systems, and microwave engineering; microelectronics and VLSI systems; and signal and image processing, systems and controls. Offered through the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), the M.S. and Ph.D. programs in Electrical Engineering are designed to help students understand and apply the principles of electrical engineering to communications, power and energy, and micro- and nano-electronics. Faculty and students research in areas such as wireless/mobile communications, micro-electro-mechanical systems, magnetics, and remote sensing. Students choose from five areas of focus: Applied electromagnetics Communications and networks Electrical power and energy Electronics, photonics, and MEMS (VLSI systems and microelectronics) Signal and image processing, systems and controls Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering (Ph.D.) Credit hours (for those with a master's degree): 30 Credit hours (for those without a master's degree): 54 Duration: 4-6 years Other requirements: Seminar requirement: Students must present one departmental seminar, excluding the dissertation defense, prior to graduation. Colloquium requirement: ​Students must register for the zero-credit colloquium course and satisfy the requirement by attending five department-sponsored seminars, workshops, or symposia. Areas of focus Communications and Networks Faculty in this area are involved in research on topics such as wireless communications and networking, data-center networks, network optimization, and optical networking.
