The Graduate Program in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst offers both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. Students may pursue their M.S. degree either through a full-residency program in Amherst or through the Field Degree, dual campus option at both UMass Amherst campus and abroad in Shanghai, China. Students who pursue these degrees are usually involved in ongoing research projects with ECE faculty.
The faculty work collaboratively to have an impact on the grand challenges of engineering. Their research interests range from the fundamental underpinnings of emerging nanoelectronic devices, circuits, and computing architectures, all the way up to large complex, integrated, electronic sensing systems, designed to sense processes ranging from the geophysical to the biological.
