Research in the Department of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering is concentrated in broad areas, creating a wealth of opportunities for graduate students to get involved in innovative, groundbreaking projects.

Admission to our graduate programs is competitive. Successful applicants will generally have records considerably stronger than our minimum eligibility requirements. PhD applicants with a very strong background in areas other than electrical engineering are encouraged to apply.

The Department of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering encourages applications from students who will broaden the diversity of our graduate community. We know that diversity is essential to academic and workplace success, and we are committed to creating an inclusive and collaborative community. Our inclusive community engages in actions that build on the work of CU Boulder’s Diversity Initiative
