Graduate Programs

woman teaching young students

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers a Master of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering as well as a Ph.D. degree. The Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering degree typically requires two years of study.  Doctoral level study is also possible for highly qualified students through the Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering degree program.

A wide variety of ECE graduate courses in the Masters and Ph.D. degree programs are regularly offered at the Durham Campus. Almost all ECE graduate students are supported through teaching and research assistantships.

Our graduate programs are quite flexible allowing the student a wide choice of courses as well as research topics. Many students work in the UNH Interoperability Laboratory and study computer telecommunications. Others work in such diverse fields as ergonomics in the workplace, automation of medical equipment, designing and improving the reliability of advanced integrated circuits, wireless communication systems, image processing, alternative energy systems, improvement of manufacturing equipment and modeling antenna patterns at airports.

Applicants graduating from US schools should apply directly to the UNH Graduate School. The first step for international students is to pre-apply by filling out a form. This process provides us with the necessary information to determine if it would be likely that you would be accepted to the program. Once you have passed the pre-application process, you will be given all the necessary details to apply to our program.
