At the University of Kansas, our graduate programs focus on advancing the state of knowledge through research and educating students to become the next generation of researchers and educators. Our goal is to recruit and admit students with the aptitude and motivation to excel in electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, and information technology.

The University and the Department
Founded in 1864, the University of Kansas serves as a major comprehensive research and teaching institution as well as a center of learning, scholarship, and creative endeavor. KU is currently home for more than 30,000 students from Kansas and around the world. The main campus consists of 1,000 acres atop historic Mount Oread in the city of Lawrence, with a population of nearly 90,000 in northeast Kansas. KU is less than one hour away from Kansas City to the east and from Topeka, the state capital, to the west. The EECS department began as the Electrical Engineering Department in 1887 and joined the newly organized School of Engineering four years later. The department added Computer Engineering in 1984 to become the ECE department.The Computer Science Department was created in 1965 in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and merged with ECE in 1993 to form EECS, the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The EECS graduate program offers M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, and Information Technology (at the Edwards Campus facility only); Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science; and the D.E. degree in Electrical Engineering. The department has 35 full-time faculty members and 11 full-time staff members. Approximately 220 graduate students currently are enrolled, 70 of them Ph.D. students. The University of Kansas prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, ancestry, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, marital status, and parental status.

Prospective Students
Applicants for graduate admission should demonstrate evidence of aptitude for graduate work, as shown by suitable performance in undergraduate and (if available) graduate course work, by suitable aptitude test scores on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and by academic letters of reference. A nonrefundable application fee is required. Unless the applicant’s native language is English or the applicant has received a baccalaureate degree or higher from an accredited U.S. institution of higher education, the applicant must meet the department’s standard for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Prospective students who are applying for graduate teaching assistantships must pass the SPEAK test administered by the Applied English Center at the University of Kansas before beginning their appointments as graduate teaching assistants. Applications and all accompanying materials for fall admission should be
