The Department of Electrical Engineering offers advanced coursework integrated with research leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Electrical Engineering. The program has emphases in five concentrations: Computer Engineering, Systems and Control, Digital Signal Processing, Communications and Electronic Materials and Devices.
The Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering will be awarded to candidates who have displayed an in-depth understanding of the subject matter and demonstrated the ability to make an original contribution to knowledge in their field of specialty.
The Ph.D. program in Electrical Engineering, M.S. program in Electrical Engineering and M.S. program in Computer Engineering offer opportunities in both advanced course work and research projects to prepare students for leadership roles in engineering careers with industry, government, or educational institutions.
Our graduate programs stress both theoretical and practical aspects of Electrical and Computer Engineering by combining the teaching and research expertise of the university community with the resources of other San Antonio research institutions.
The graduate faculty in Electrical and Computer Engineering are very active in conducting cutting-edge research projects which provide both research experiences and financial supports for our graduate students.
The research in our graduate programs at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering mainly focuses on five concentrations:Communications
Research stipends and scholarships will be posted to the College of Engineering Scholarships page as they become available.
Our graduate courses are offered mostly in afternoon and evening. About half of the courses are taught in the afternoon (2 p.m. – 5 p.m.) and another half in the evening (5 p.m. – 8:15 p.m.).
After graduation, our MS and PhD graduates are employed as engineers or researcher in research firms and industries.
Some of our former doctorate students are working in universities as faculty members.
