Graduate Electrical Engineering Program
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is uniquely placed to add to the financial aid for our electrical engineering graduate students. Through scholarships funded from a $2M MUMMA Endowment Fund and other foundations, we support and supplement University and School of Engineering awards for our students.
You will receive personal attention from top scholars and multiple opportunities to work with industry leaders as an electrical engineering graduate student. You'll develop your expertise while meeting professional contacts at the same time. We support your work with seven computer labs featuring industry-specific software and 10 specialized laboratories.
Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (M.S.)
Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (M.S.) UD Bulletin Information >>
The program of study leading to the M.S. in electrical engineering must include a minimum of 30 semester hours of credit consisting of the following:
- At least 9 semester hours in electrical engineering core courses approved by adviser/advisory committee, select from:
- ECE 501 Contemporary digital systems
- ECE 503 Random processes
- ECE 506 Microelectronic devices
- ECE 507 Electromagnetic fields I
- ECE 509 Analysis of linear systems
- At least 9 semester hours in a concentration area such as telecommunications, signals & systems, and digital systems, or as approved by the adviser/advisory committee.
- At least 6 semester hours of selected technical electives, selected courses must be approved by your adviser.
- 6 semester hours on an approved thesis or 6 hours of additional electrical engineering coursework. Students receiving 50% assistantship/stipend over one academic year or more will be required to pursue the thesis option.
Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering (Ph.D.) and Doctor of Engineering (D.E.)
The Ph.D. in electrical engineering and the Doctor of Engineering (D.E.) degrees are granted in recognition of superior achievement in independent research and coursework. The research must demonstrate that the student possesses the capacity for original thought, talent for research, and ability to organize and present findings.
Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering
Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering (Ph.D.) UD Bulletin Information >>
The minimum credit hours required for the Ph.D. degree are 60 semester hours beyond the master's degree. This includes a minimum of 30 semester hours for the dissertation and a minimum of 30 semester hours of coursework. A student seeking the Ph.D. is required to complete a minimum of 6 semester hours in advanced mathematics. The dissertation must either add to the fundamental knowledge of the field or provide a new and better interpretation of facts already known. It is expected to result in one or more manuscripts suitable for publication in a refereed journal.
Doctor of Engineering
The D.E. is granted in recognition of superior achievement in coursework and an independent project. The project will usually be broad in scope, involve more than one discipline or subdiscipline and be closely tied to an industrial application. A minimum of 60 semester hours beyond the master's degree is required for the D.E. degree. This includes a minimum of 21 semester hours for the dissertation and a minimum of 39 semester hours of coursework. A student seeking the D.E. is required to complete a minimum of 21 semester hours in the major area (covering the domains of at least two subdisciplines), a minimum of 6 semester hours in advanced mathematics, and 9 semester hours in a synergistic area of engineering or science. The dissertation must address an integrated industrial project. It is expected to result in a manuscript suitable for publication in an applied engineering journal and/or documentation leading to a patent.Top
