The power of a UIC graduate degree is demonstrated by the post-graduation successes of our MS and PhD students in electrical and computer engineering. Whether you already know what you want to do with your graduate education or you’re looking to the academic experience to help you decide, you will benefit from the ECE department’s curriculum, faculty expertise, peer support, and culture of excellence.

Within the past five years, we have graduated 436 master’s students and 52 doctoral students in electrical and computer engineering. Here is a representative sample of the places in industry and academia where they headed after UIC:
