About

The University of Notre Dame Department of Electrical Engineering offers programs of study and research leading to the degrees of master of science and the doctor of philosophy in electrical engineering. The programs are designed to prepare students for careers in university teaching and research as well as industrial or governmental research and advanced development. 

Overview

Areas of specialization include systems theory, electromagnetics, digital signal and image processing, communication theory, and solid-state materials and devices.

First Semester

During the first semester, all new graduate students are required to file a course plan for their entire program. With advice from the director of graduate studies or a faculty advisor, this plan maps the courses to be taken and the expected dates of completion for the different elements comprising the program.

Master's Program

The research Electrical Engineering program at University of Notre Dame requires a minimum of 30 semester hours of credit, of which a minimum of 18 hours are course credits and a minimum of six hours may be awarded for research towards an M.S. thesis. All courses may be in electrical engineering, but up to nine semester hours of course credit may be taken from other departments. The course work should be designed to prepare the student adequately for work in the major area of specialization. Advanced undergraduate courses, numbered 400 to 497, may be taken for up to six credit hours. The student must, upon acceptance of the thesis, successfully pass an oral thesis defense examination. These requirements ordinarily are completed by a full-time student in three to four regular academic semesters. The non-research master of science degree requires a minimum of 30 semester hours of course credit.

General requirements

  • An applicant for admission to the graduate programs in electrical engineering must hold a bachelor's degree or its equivalent from an accredited American college or university, or from a foreign institution of acceptable standing. The applicant should have at least a `B' average in his or her most recent years of academic work.
  • Most applicants to this department have undergraduate degrees in electrical engineering. However, it has been our experience that individuals with degrees in physics, mathematics, chemistry and related scientific and technical areas are able to complete a graduate program in electrical engineering.
