Graduate Credit Taken as an Undergraduate
Undergraduate students taking 600 level graduate courses and petitioning these courses for graduate credit should realize that application of these credits to the program of study is subject to the approval of the student’s graduate committee. A student’s graduate program will come under the control of the graduate committee at the time the student is accepted into the graduate program.
Graduate Committee and Program of Study
The ECE Graduate Committee is the graduate committee for all M.S. EE non-thesis degree students, with the ECE Graduate Coordinator serving as the advisor. M.S. EE thesis students form a graduate committee with a major professor who has agreed to supervise the research of the student. In both cases, the student must arrange to have a faculty member external to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering on his or her committee.
Each student must submit a program of study to the candidate’s graduate committee by the end of the first semester of study. Approval of the program of study is necessary in order to register for the second and subsequent semesters.
The student’s graduate committee has the right to disallow any course proposed in the student’s program of study that they feel is not appropriate for the graduate degree in electrical engineering. A student accepted into the Ph.D. program in materials engineering and science, nanoscience and nanoengineering, or biomedical engineering must have his or her program approved by the graduate committee responsible for that respective program.
