Graduate Area Committees

For administrative purposes, the graduate program in Electrical and Computer Engineering is divided into eight different areas: Automatic Control, Biomedical Imaging and Sensing, Communications, Networking, Image and Signal Processing, Computer Engineering, Power and Energy Systems, Fields and Optics, Microelectronics and Nanotechnology (Formerly Solid State), and VLSI and Circuit Design.

The academic program in each is supervised by an Area Committee composed of all faculty members having a research interest in that area. Each Area Committee is led by a Chairperson who is elected every two years by the members of the committee. The current members and chairs of the various Area Committees are indicated below.

Graduate students wishing information about courses, typical plans of study, special requirements, or research activities in a given area should feel free to consult with faculty members in that Area. Students should be aware that most faculty members are specialists in one or two Areas and may not be familiar with most recent activities in other Areas.
