The Department, with the help of its Course Planning Committee, has developed a strong curriculum providing students with broad basic knowledge on which a solid career in Electrical Engineering can be built. In addition, the committee also reviews and revises this curriculum regularly to reflect the ever-changing needs of the industry and the society.
The Department of Electrical Engineering offers undergraduate and graduate programs. The undergraduate program prepares the students for a career in various fields of electrical engineering as well as for further study. The undergraduate students can flexibly select their studies in any field by their interests and capabilities.
Within the EE areas, the Graduate Institutes of Electrical Engineering, Photonics and Optoelectronics, Communication Engineering, Electronics Engineering, and Biomedical Electronics and Bioinformatics offer graduate programs, leading to the degrees of Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), and aim to prepare the students especially for a career in teaching and/or research. The graduate students must choose one of the ten fields to perform their research.

Graduate Courses
The graduate program of the Department consists of three major areas: Automatic Control, Power Systems/ Power Electronics, Computer Science. Other areas are provided by the Graduate Institute of  Photonics and Optoelectronics (established in 1992), the Graduate Institute of Communication Engineering (established in 1997), the Graduate Institute of Electronics Engineering (established in 2001), and the Graduate Institute of Biomedical Electronics and Bioinformatics (established in 2006). The program leading to the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering requires a course work of 24 credits (excluding Seminar, Special Projects, Department Colloquium, and Thesis). The thesis must be presented to and approved by a committee in less than four academic years.
The program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering requires a course work of at least 18 credits and the following qualifications: (1) passing the Ph. D. candidacy qualification examination within the first four academic semesters, and (2) presentation of a dissertation approved by a committee. First-year students with distinguished qualification in the M.S. program can apply for entering the Ph.D. program without an M.S. degree. In this case, the course work requirement is 42 credits.
