Doctor of Philosophy Program in Electrical and Computer Engineering (Ph.D.)


The Ph.D. program a joint Ph.D. program among 4 electrical engineering departments within the Faculty of Engineering: Computer Engineering Department, Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering Department, and Department of Control System and Instrumentation Engineering Department. One can choose a variety of topics to work on their Ph.D. thesis. The faculty of the program consists of expert lecturers and professors with years of research and teaching experience from the 4 departments. The aim of this collaboration is to produce top-notch researchers and quality faculty members who are specialists in their own fields. Moreover, all courses are taught in English, and maintaining the quality of the program at international standard is a top priority of the departments involved. Students in the program often spend one year conducting research at an overseas institution. This overseas tenure is an invaluable learning experience for the students as a result of close research collaboration with overseas professors. For example, currently many Ph.D. candidates of the program are placed at various laboratories across countries such as the US, Canada, UK, Germany, Australia, Japan, Taiwan, and Singapore.

Ph.D. Program in Electrical and Computer Engineering requires 4 year of studying for graduated students with Bachelor degree and 3 years for those with Master degree. In case that student chooses a joint program with foreign Universities, they have to follow the rule or regulation of the MOU agreement. The duration of study might be taken longer than the limited period.
