Our PhD program provides applicants the opportunity for rewarding interdisciplinary study.
Tremendous Research Opportunities
Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) faculty members boast international reputations and provide students with opportunities for research, for example, in such areas as: Solid State Materials and Devices, Photonics, Electromagnetics, Space and Science Technology, Computer Networking and Distributed Systems, Signal and Image Processing, Machine Learning and Statistical Signal Processing, Communication, and Sensor Networks. You can learn more about research in these areas by visiting Photonics, Electronics and Nanotechnology, Imaging and Optical Science, Data Science and Intelligent Systems, and BioECE and Digital Health.
The ECE PhD Student Experience
As an electrical or computer engineering PhD student, you will pursue theoretical and empirical studies in a topic area determined by your interests and those of your faculty research advisor. As a student in Boston, you will be in the midst of a vibrant high-tech research community where external collaborations with industry, government, and other universities are common. However, your experience will likely not be limited to Boston; PhD students are supported by the Department to present their work at many key conferences around the world.
