The department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EECS) presently offers a minor program in Engineering Sciences (jointly with the Chemical Engineering department) and a Ph.D. program.
From the academic year 2017-2018, we will begin to offer a BS-MS (Dual Degree) in Electronics & Communication Engineering (ECE) and Computer Science & Engineering (CSE). These programs are envisaged to be unique in the sense that the students enrolling in these programs will get a wider exposure to basic sciences than is traditional. This will better prepare them for a career in research and academia.
To leverage the benefits of having both of the ECE and the CSE programs owned by the same department (EECS), these programs are designed to have a common set of courses which will have the essential concepts from both the programs which are now perceived to be of fundamental importance to both. This is in recognition of the emerging trend in which certain aspects of computer science are finding increasing use in ECE, and vice versa. This forms a unique aspect of the programs which will better prepare the students for the future.
