The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), with guidance from our internationally known faculty, challenges you to solve real problems from industry and government by applying theoretical tools from electrical engineering and computer science disciplines. Our focus on applied problems gives you hands-on experiences that are essential for a successful career in these fields.

Financial aid for graduate studies is available through teaching assistantships, research assistantships, and scholarship and grant programs. There is considerable competition for these awards. You are encouraged to apply by the deadline to receive thorough consideration for funding.

Degree Programs

  • Master of Science in Computer Sciences
  • Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Sciences


The EECS department has seven areas of research activity that stem from the core fields of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science: (1) Applied Algorithms and Data Structures, (2) Computer Graphics and Image Processing, (3) Energy Systems and Power Electronics, (4) High Performance and Parallel Computing, (5) Information and Systems Sciences, (6) Wireless Networks, and (7) Education. Additionally, students may study areas such as Embedded Systems and/or Robotics, which includes elements from both Computer Science and Electrical Engineering disciplines. Note that in many cases, individual research projects encompass more than one research area. Research is focused in the following areas:

  • Ad Hoc Networks
  • Applied Algorithms
  • Computational Geometry and Topology
  • Computer Graphics
  • Computer Science Education
  • Data Compression
  • Educational Technologies
  • Fault-tolerant Computing
  • High Performance Computing
