The Department of Electrical Engineering offers two degree programs, the Master of Science and the Ph.D. Active research areas exist in: biomedical engineering, digital and wireless communications, digital and VLSI design, digital signal processing, electro-optics, ellipsometry, mixed-signal circuit design, nanotechnology, optics of nanostructure materials, plasma processing, power systems, remote sensing and electromagnetics, and solid state devices and materials. These programs are funded by various federal, state, and private agencies with annual research expenditures exceeding $2 million.
The department has extensive research facilities for all areas of active research and graduate students have the flexibility to pursue their own research experience. In addition to computing facilities individually operated by each research group, the department administers a network of high-end UNIX workstations and PCs which are regularly upgraded. These facilities are used for classroom instruction as well as the individual needs of the students.
