Specific major areas of study currently available include: Communications, Computer Engineering, Control System Theory, Electromagnetics and Optics, Power Systems, Signal Processing, and Solid State Materials and Devices. One may be admitted to the Ph.D. program by one of two mechanisms. The Conventional Option requires the student to complete a M.S. Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
The Direct Ph.D. Option allows those undergraduates with outstanding undergraduate backgrounds to enter the Ph.D. program without having to complete a M.S. Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. All requirements leading to a Ph.D. are still required beyond the B.S. Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering excluding the completion of a Master thesis.
A Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Nevada, Las Vegas specifically prepares graduates for a research career in the electrical engineering field. Most students who purse a Ph.D. in electrical engineering have a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree and a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in electrical engineering. Obtaining a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering allows graduates to specialize in particular electrical engineering disciplines and engage in research in one or more of these disciplines. A Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering can also help graduates establish a career in teaching electrical engineering.
