Graduate Degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science


The UW Electrical and Computer Engineering faculty consists of researchers from top-20 universities developing new technologies in rapidly growing technologies such as bio-engineering and green energy.  Graduate students in ECE are immersed in an environment that is the synergism of deep theory and practical application, as ideas spawned in intellectual exchange with faculty are developed and eventually verified in one of the ten active research laboratories within the department. Opportunities for students to produce scholarly research are augmented with the potential to take part in commercial enterprises established by faculty, further enhancing the graduate experience and establishing invaluable ties to industry.
