Signal and Image Processing (EC82)

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) admits students to graduate studies through either the M.S. or Ph.D. programs. ECE offers graduate programs leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering with specializations in each of the following areas: communication theory and systems; computer engineering; electronic circuits and systems; electronic devices and materials; intelligent systems, robotics and control; magnetic recording; photonics; radio and space science; and signal and image processing. In addition, there are interdepartmental curricula in advanced manufacturing, applied ocean sciences, and materials science.

Program Info

Area of Study Jacobs School of Engineering
Program Overview The ECE Department B.S./M.S. is a contiguous program for advanced, distinguished UCSD ECE undergraduates, leading to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and a Master of Science (M.S.). Students admitted to the program have access to graduate-level ECE courses and opportunities to do graduate level research under the direct supervision of faculty before completing their bachelor’s degree.

Admission for graduate study through the B.S./M.S. program is for the M.S. degree only. Undergraduate students wishing to be considered for the ECE Ph.D. degree must apply to the Ph.D. program directly.
