Student Research

On this page:

Students have multiple opportunities for planning and executing their own research. Faculty works closely with them during all stages of the project, but the ideas and work is their own. The research projects better prepare the students for their careers in engineering and developing their own future research.

Senior Design Projects

All computer science, computer engineering, information technology and cybersecurity, electrical engineering, and electrical and computer engineering technology students are required to complete a capstone course at the end of their degree program. They work in interdisciplinary groups to explore concepts connected to current themes in business. Presentations of the completed projects take place at the end of each semester.

Master’s Theses

Students in the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering program have the option of completing thesis research under the guidance of a faculty member. This research involves working closely with an advisor in the department on significant technological challenges.




Doctoral Dissertations

One of the requirements of the Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering is the written culmination of research.  The dissertation is an original, significant contribution to scholarly, technical, or scientific knowledge in a specialized area that provides convincing evidence of the highest level of mastery in the techniques of research and a thorough understanding and application of the subject matter.
