The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at SMU offers two doctoral programs, one in Electrical Engineering and one in Computer Engineering. These research-intensive programs allow students to work closely with faculty advisors on solving challenging problems. Our world-renowned faculty focus on both theoretical and applied research that can make a significant impact on society. Students in the doctoral program frequently publish their research in top publications in their fields.
Most doctoral students are funded as research assistants during their studies. Please visit our faculty research pages for more information about individual research areas and the graduate catalog for additional information about the requirements (admission and completion) for the doctoral programs.
