Graduate Program

The Electrical Engineering Department’s graduate program emphasizes forward-looking graduate education and original, cutting-edge research. While addressing fundamental issues and applications, our research focuses on current high-growth fields like security, photonics, nanotechnology, quantum computing, biomedical applications, networks and communications, and multi-core computer architecture. More information is available under the “Research” menu above. The Department offers two degree programs. The doctoral (Ph.D.) program prepares students for a variety of careers in research, teaching, and advanced development. This is the largest doctoral program at Princeton University, yet it remains intimate enough that students receive personal attention and extensive faculty contact. The Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) program is a one-year program designed for students interested in careers in engineering practices or technical management. Many distinguished alumni of our graduate programs occupy leadership positions in industry, academia, business, finance, and government. Our graduate education and research missions are supported by vibrant collaborations with the other departments in the School of Engineering and Applied Science and with the math and science departments. Graduate research opportunities are also enhanced by several interdisciplinary research centers at Princeton, including: the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, the Princeton Neuroscience Institute, the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM), the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics (PACM), Princeton Center for Complex Materials (PCCM), the Center for Mid-InfraRed Technologies for Health and the Environment (MIRTHE) and the Gigascale Systems Research Center (GSRC). The Department also has excellent relationships with neighboring companies and industrial laboratories where students can be engaged on joint research projects.
