Doctoral Program in Electrical Engineering and Informatics

General Information

The goal of this program is to prepare students to perform independent research in the area of their interests and to significantly contribute to science within the fields of electrical engineering and informatics. The doctoral degree will be awarded to candidates who demonstrate in-depth understanding of the field and show the ability to perform independent and original research that is publishable in journals. We offer the following concentrations:

  1. Biomedical Engineering
  2. Computer Engineering
  3. Control and Computer System
  4. Electronics Engineering
  5. Software and Data Engineering
  6. Informatics
  7. Information Technology
  8. Electrical Power Engineering
  9. Telecommunication Engineering
The curriculum of this doctoral program is designed to be completed within 6 semesters or 3 years. The program must be completed in less than five years. Doctoral students are required to take fundamental courses during semesters 1 and 2 and in-depth courses during semesters 3 – 4. During the first year they are also expected to write a research proposal. The qualifying exam will be conducted at the end of the second semester. Students must present their research proposal and demonstrate in-depth knowledge of the research area. Students must have passed the qualifying exam within two years. The research will continue through the following semester. Each semester students must submit and present a research progress report. After submitting a dissertation report, doctoral candidates will undergo a series of examinations in order to defend their research.
