ECE Graduate Program

The Graduate Program in Electrical Engineering at the University of Vermont (UVM) offers Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. For more information, see the links to the right and the ECE Graduate Student Handbook.

Electrical Engineering Master of Science (MS)

From the power grid to smart phones, electrical engineers design the technologies that make modern life possible.
The Electrical Engineering (EE) graduate program at UVM offers you the chance to contribute to EE innovation, while also expanding your career options. UVM offers an M.S. degree with research, project, or course-work options, an accelerated M.S. degree track for qualified undergraduate students as well as a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) degree. UVM has outstanding EE faculty, who work closely with talented students in the classroom, laboratory, and in research addressing global issues and technological challenges. Opportunities also exists for collaborative research projects with industry partners and national research laboratories.

The major EE research areas include power/energy systems, wireless communications, electromagnetics, signal processing, materials and devices, microelectronics, and control systems. Funding opportunities are available for top students interested in pursuing research, including Graduate Teaching Assistantship (GTA’s) and Graduate Research Assistantships (GRA’s). We normally receive many more applications than we are able to accept and fund therefore it is strongly recommended that you submit your application by February 1, 2015 to obtain full consideration for Fall admission and funding.

We look forward to welcoming you to UVM as a member of our outstanding graduate program of dedicated faculty and staff and highly motivated students.

Note that we currently have fully-funded PhD openings for US citizens and permanent residents interested in the future of power and energy systems: the Smart Grid. Apply here! Individuals with MS degrees are preferred.
