Electrical Engineering(EE) is one of two graduate programs offered by the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Division; the other is Electrical Engineering:Systems. EECS enables students to have a home in a degree program tailored closely to their interests, while having access to, and the benefits of, the full breadth of the EECS Department.Technical Areas of the program are Applied Electromagnetics, Energy Science & Eng., Integrated Circuits & VLSI, MEMS & Microsystems, Optics & Photonics, Plasma Science & Eng., Quantum Science & Devices, Solid-State Devices & Nanotechnology.
Electrical engineering is at the heart of modern technology and innovation from computers to health care, electronics, space technology, musical systems, cars, robotics, biomedical devices, and energy/power systems. Electrical engineers are striving to make components smaller, faster, more energy efficient and less costly. Electrical engineering drives modern society as we know it (transistors, electronics, chips, fiber optics), and is the answer to improving the standard of living on a global scale—whether through tackling energy (solar cells, grid integration, efficient lighting, and electric vehicles through nanotechnology, systems, and control engineering), or treating diseases such as Parkinson’s and cancer (neural probes and microsystems, lasers and optics).
