Instructors for each course:
EE 485 – Dubey
EE 486 – TBD
EE 491 – Venkatasubramanian
EE 493 – Lotfifard
EE 521 – Bose
EE 522 – Pedrow
EE 526 – Olsen
EE 536 – Srivastava
- Technical courses that fulfill the requirements of the degree are taught once per year. Elective courses are taught at least once every two years
- The offering of specific course in a given semester is subject to minimum enrollment constraints.
- Unless permission is granted, EE 701 (internship) is taken in the last semester of the program. It may be taken in the summer, but this is not recommended due to the faculty/mentor availability and the shorter time available to complete the project.
