The ECE department offers a Ph.D., a research-focused master of science and two applied master of engineering degrees. Duke has strength and depth in selected areas of research, and our relatively small size enables us to provide students with the opportunity to receive individualized faculty mentoring throughout their graduate studies.
Why Choose Duke ECE?
Our students work in a supportive, close-knit community and have ample opportunities:
- to publish with their faculty adviser,
- to present research at professional conferences,
- to work in a highly collaborative, cross-disciplinary environment, and
- to make significant contributions to their field.
Although the focus of your graduate education will be on academics, the value of opportunities beyond your topic of study is also important. Our graduate students regularly participate in athletic, social, entrepreneurship, religious, and community service activities sponsored by organizations within and outside the university. In short, the Triangle region of North Carolina is a great place to live, work, and play.
