About

The Electrical and Computer Engineering program of the University of Massachusetts Amherst offers both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees.

Overview

Students may pursue the Electrical and Computer Engineering program of the University of Massachusetts Amherst either through a full-residency program in Amherst or through the Field Degree, dual campus option at both UMass Amherst campus and abroad in Shanghai, China. Students who pursue these degrees are usually involved in ongoing research projects with ECE faculty.

Faculty

The faculty work collaboratively to have an impact on the grand challenges of engineering. They have won prestigious awards such as the IEEE Lifetime Achievement award, NSF CAREER awards, and election to Fellow grade of the IEEE. Their research interests range from the fundamental underpinnings of emerging nanoelectronic devices, circuits, and computing architectures, all the way up to large complex, integrated, electronic sensing systems, designed to sense processes ranging from the geophysical to the biological. These complex systems are enabled by ubiquitous computing comprised of embedded systems, managed by wireless communication and computer networks, and understood via mathematical systems modeling.
