This section provides brief descriptions of many of the graduate courses recently offered by the Department of Electrical Engineering. Students are also strongly encouraged to take advantage of the broad range of courses offered by other departments such as statistics, mathematics, physics, computer science, management, psychology, physiology, and other fields of engineering.
