Graduate Positions at the ECE Department of the University of Delaware


The ECE Department at the University of Delaware is seeking MS and Ph.D. students to join the graduate program starting Fall 2022. Our more than 100 doctoral students specialize in research areas that include semiconductor device fabrication, nano electronics and photonics, RF engineering, embedded systems and integrated circuits, hardware and software design, smart grid and energy systems, machine learning and large-scale data analysis, cybersecurity, high performance computing, signal processing and imaging systems, and communication systems. Financial support for the Ph.D. program, and for strong MS students, is available in the form of Research Assistantships, Teaching Assistantships and Scholarships, all of them providing competitive stipends, full tuition waiver and subsidized health insurance.

Exceptional applicants are encouraged to apply for one of our six “First Year Departmental Scholarships” for doctoral students. Students awarded these Scholarships will be fully supported in their first academic year. The ECE Department will provide full support during their first semester, so that they are able to explore different research groups. At the end of the first semester, first year scholars will choose a doctoral advisor, who will fund them as Research Assistants during the second semester. Following the first year, doctoral students are typically supported through research or teaching assistant positions. Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering, or equivalent, is required. Applications should be received by January 31, 2022 for full consideration. Women and underrepresented minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. The University of Delaware is an equal opportunity affirmative action employer.
