2 ECE Myth and Facts 1: It won’t pay to get an advanced degree! Sample starting salaries B.S.MSPh.D. EE (avg)$61k$76k$ 99k EE(median)$79k$100k Data for 2012 UF ECE Grads accepting US positions

3 ECE Myth and Facts 2: Grad school is limiting MS or PhD is the preferred degree in many industries/disciplines. 90% of Engineering PhD graduates go to industry. Need PhD to teach at University. Most upper management have advanced degrees.

4 ECE Myth and Facts 3: I can’t afford it! Financial Aid (Mostly PhD) Tuition Waiver Stipend

5 ECE Program Overview 5 UG MSPhD CH30 CH 60 CH Courses Labs Design Courses Internship Research Design Internships

6 ECE Faculty Activity Teaching Research – look at faculty/ECE websites Submit Proposals Entrepreneurs Get involved as an UG Lab work – contact faculty NSF – Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) – Nationwide Internships with industry 6

7 ECE Degree Programs Master of Engineering (Non-thesis or Thesis, 30 credit hours) Master of Science (Non-thesis or Thesis, 30 credit hours) Ph. D. (90 credit hours beyond BS) BS/MS BS/PhD Joint MSEE/MSM Joint MSEE/JD John Harris, professor and chair 7

8 ECE Typical Master Program Choose a mix of courses from Devices – Signals & Systems – Circuits – Computer Engineering- Electromagnetics From Textbook Frontier of Knowledge F x (9ch) - S x+1 (9ch) - SS x+1 (3ch) - F x+1 (9ch) Internship 8

9 ECE Master Degrees Non-Thesis (30 hrs) Depth requirement; Complete 3 courses within one division, with one course at least at the 6000 level. Breadth requirement; Complete at least one ECE course outside depth division. A minimum of 21 credit hours of ECE, UF classroom courses. MS final written exam during 2 nd part of a selected depth sequence. ME no final exam Rob Fox, associate professor and associate chair

10 ECE PhD Program Take 24 research focused course credits (MS courses count) Additional credits (could be all research) to get to 90 beyond BS Find a PhD advisor Pass PhD written qualifier Form a committee Pass PhD oral proposal defense Present a status report Pass PhD oral dissertation defense Turn in written PhD dissertation Combined BS/PhD: Undergraduate GPA ≥ credits double counted From MS into PhD program: Graduate GPA ≥ 3.5

11 ECE Course Spectrum Devices Entering graduate student 11 FFFF F F

12 ECE Admission Requirements I. General Graduate School MS Admission UG GPA ≥ 3.0 GRE [Q + V], avg score of admitted students is 315 GRE AW ≥ recommendation letters of faculty Time saving Combined Programs for higher GPA students BS-MS combined [6 or 12 credits doubly counted] BS-PhD combined [12 credits doubly counted] 12

13 ECE Admission Requirements II. Requirements: Combined BS-MS Program Senior status (4eg, 90 credits), At least a year from starting semester to graduation 7 EEL/EEE core courses, 2 EEL labs Upper division GPA of 3.3 or higher GRE score of 315 (new) or1200 (old) or higher 13

14 ECE Multiple Tracks Honors BS/MS: GPA ≥ 3.3: 6 credits double counted 24 credits left for MS High Honors BS/MS: GPA ≥ 3.6: 12 credits double counted 18 credits left for MS BS/PhD: GPA ≥ 3.7: 12 credits double counted 14

15 ECE Financial Support I Research Assistantship (RA). Stipend and tuition waiver if >0.25 FTE. Distributed by ECE faculty. Other Personal Services UF jobs (OPS). Stipend but no tuition waiver. Industry Internships – $5k to $7k / month, relocation help 15

16 ECE Financial Support II UF Fellowships, 4 year, stipend + tuition, Faculty buy-in. National Fellowships on your person, can be used at any school. Competitive but very attractive! Army, ONR, and AFOSR, application window Sept-January (www.ASEE.org) SMART, Oct-February window NSF GRFP, Nov 4 deadline 16

17 ECE Information Julie Walters in Larsen 230, Application Deadlines for F14: Dec 15, Jan 1,-May 1 Graduate area Course and Research Videos at section 3 is E&M, 4-Signals & Systems, 5-Devices, 6-Computer Engineering, 7- Circuits Graduate Academic section ECE website 17

18 ECE More Additional Slides 18

19 ECE Advantages of UF ECE 32 th best ECE graduate program in US News (2012) Many Faculty (~$12M research expenditures/year) –Diverse areas of research –Lots of opportunities More than 600 graduate students (~200 MS, ~400 PhD) Large Number of course offerings –80 graduate courses/year. –This allows flexibility in choosing courses. (Compare to Caltech EE with 16 faculty members and 80 grad students) Lots of top companies recruit our grad students –Intel, TI, IBM, Lockheed as examples

20 ECE Already Familiar with the Program Know the Faculty Have the Prereqs we expect Easier to select courses We have a BS/MS program with double counting
