Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

The Ph.D. Program Structure

The graduate curriculum in Computer Science in the EECS department is structured into six primary focus areas:

  • Distributed and Networked Systems
  • Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Image Processing and Graphics
  • Intelligent Systems
  • Software and Systems Engineering
  • Theory
This structure is designed to help students choose the courses they need to take to prepare for research in their area of choice. Moreover, this structure impacts the course work and preliminary examination requirements that students must satisfy for the Ph.D. program.
