Academics

Graduate Programs

EECS offers both the master degree and the doctor degree in electronics and computer science and technology. The master degree program is a three-year research degree program. Students get their master degree upon the fulfillment of required course work and thesis as well as the completion of oral thesis defense with a success. The doctoral degree program normally requires three (for those with a master degree already) to five years study and research. Students receive their Ph.D. degree upon the fulfillment of required course work and dissertation work.

Master students can choose from 11 majors and in each major there are multiple research areas available, as follows:
