Why Should You Come to Utah State?
Graduate studies in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at USU include opportunities to work with faculty and other graduate students who are involved in cutting-edge research and relevant coursework. Faculty are interested in the development of graduate students into world-class researchers or professionals with up-to-date knowledge of developments in Electrical and Computer Engineering. USU is known for our personal touch- students are an important part of our success, and have regular access to faculty for mentoring in both research pursuits and career advisement.
Nearly all of our students in research-oriented degree programs have the opportunity to work on projects in a Research Assistant position before the completion of their degree. This means that the students can receive financial support by working on the same project tasks that are required to complete the thesis, project report, or dissertation required for their degree. The research projects are in many of the emphasis areas in the ECE department, including signal and image processing, communications, control systems, E&M, computer systems, space engineering, and solid-state electronics.
Students on our Master of Engineering (ME) degree program have the chance to advance their technical knowledge through coursework in areas that can lead to professional development and career advancement.
