About the Program

The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences offers four graduate programs in Electrical Engineering: the Master of Engineering (MEng) in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, the Master of Advanced Study in Integrated Circuits (MAS-IC), the Master of Science (MS), and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

For information regarding the MAS-IC program, please see the Integrated Circuits program page in this Guide.

Master of Engineering (MEng)

The Master of Engineering (MEng) in Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences, first offered by the EECS Department in the 2011-2012 academic year, is a professional master’s with a larger tuition than our other programs and is for students who plan to join the engineering profession immediately following graduation. The accelerated program is designed to develop professional engineering leaders who understand the technical, economic, and social issues of technology. This single academic year, interdisciplinary experience includes three major components: an area of technical concentration, courses in leadership skills, and a rigorous capstone project experience. 

Master of Science (MS)

The Master of Science (MS) emphasizes research preparation and experience and, for most students, is a chance to lay the groundwork for pursuing a PhD.

Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)

The Berkeley PhD in EECS combines coursework and original research with some of the finest EECS faculty in the US preparing for careers in academia or industry. Our alumni have gone on to hold amazing positions around the world.

Admissions

Admission to the University

Minimum Requirements for Admission

The following minimum requirements apply to all graduate programs and will be verified by the Graduate Division:

  1. A bachelor’s degree or recognized equivalent from an accredited institution;
  2. A grade point average of B or better (3.0);
  3. If the applicant comes from a country or political entity (e.g., Quebec) where English is not the official language, adequate proficiency in English to do graduate work, as evidenced by a TOEFL score of at least 90 on the iBT test, 570 on the paper-and-pencil test, or an IELTS Band score of at least 7 (note that individual programs may set higher levels for any of these); and
  4. Sufficient undergraduate training to do graduate work in the given field.

Applicants Who Already Hold a Graduate Degree

The Graduate Council views academic degrees not as vocational training certificates, but as evidence of broad training in research methods, independent study, and articulation of learning. Therefore, applicants who already have academic graduate degrees should be able to pursue new subject matter at an advanced level without need to enroll in a related or similar graduate program.

Programs may consider students for an additional academic master’s or professional master’s degree only if the additional degree is in a distinctly different field.

Applicants admitted to a doctoral program that requires a master’s degree to be earned at Berkeley as a prerequisite (even though the applicant already has a master’s degree from another institution in the same or a closely allied field of study) will be permitted to undertake the second master’s degree, despite the overlap in field.

The Graduate Division will admit students for a second doctoral degree only if they meet the following guidelines:

  1. Applicants with doctoral degrees may be admitted for an additional doctoral degree only if that degree program is in a general area of knowledge distinctly different from the field in which they earned their original degree. For example, a physics PhD could be admitted to a doctoral degree program in music or history; however, a student with a doctoral degree in mathematics would not be permitted to add a PhD in statistics.
  2. Applicants who hold the PhD degree may be admitted to a professional doctorate or professional master’s degree program if there is no duplication of training involved.

Applicants may apply only to one single degree program or one concurrent degree program per admission cycle.

Required Documents for Applications

  1. Transcripts: Applicants may upload unofficial transcripts with your application for the departmental initial review. If the applicant is admitted, then official transcripts of all college-level work will be required. Official transcripts must be in sealed envelopes as issued by the school(s) attended. If you have attended Berkeley, upload your unofficial transcript with your application for the departmental initial review. If you are admitted, an official transcript with evidence of degree conferral will not be required.
  2. Letters of recommendation: Applicants may request online letters of recommendation through the online application system. Hard copies of recommendation letters must be sent directly to the program, not the Graduate Division.
  3. Evidence of English language proficiency: All applicants from countries or political entities in which the official language is not English are required to submit official evidence of English language proficiency. This applies to applicants from Bangladesh, Burma, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Latin America, the Middle East, the People’s Republic of China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, most European countries, and Quebec (Canada). However, applicants who, at the time of application, have already completed at least one year of full-time academic course work with grades of B or better at a US university may submit an official transcript from the US university to fulfill this requirement. The following courses will not fulfill this requirement:
    • courses in English as a Second Language,
    • courses conducted in a language other than English,
    • courses that will be completed after the application is submitted, and
    • courses of a non-academic nature.

If applicants have previously been denied admission to Berkeley on the basis of their English language proficiency, they must submit new test scores that meet the current minimum from one of the standardized tests.

Doctoral Degree Requirements

Normative Time Requirements

Total Normative Time

Normative time in the EECS department is between 5.5-6 years for the doctoral program.

Time to Advancement

Curriculum

The faculty of the College of Engineering recommends a minimum number of courses taken while in graduate standing. The total minimum is 24 units of coursework, taken for a letter grade and not including 298, 299, 301, and 602. Students entering prior to fall 2009 have the option of completing 32 units of coursework with a reduced teaching requirement.

Approved study list per student’s research interests to include:
12 units in one major field within EECS, with a 3.5 GPA
6 units in one minor field within EECS, with a 3.0 GPA
6 units in one minor field outside EECS, with a 3.0 GPA
EL ENG 375Teaching Techniques for Electrical Engineering2

Preliminary Exams

The EECS preliminary requirement consists of two components:

Oral Examination

The oral exam serves an advisory role in a student's graduate studies program with official feedback from the exam committee of faculty members. Students must be able to demonstrate an integrated grasp of the exam area's body of knowledge in an unstructured framework. Students must pass the oral portion of the preliminary exam within their first two attempts. A third attempt is possible with a petition of support from the student's faculty adviser and final approval by the prelim committee chair. Failure to pass the oral portion of the preliminary exam will result in the student being ineligible to complete the PhD program. The examining committee awards a score in the range of 0-10. The minimum passing score is 6.0.

Breadth Courses

The prelim breadth courses ensure that students have an exposure to areas outside of their concentration.

EE students are expected to complete two courses of at least three units each in two areas of EECS outside their oral exam area. These courses must be graduate or advanced undergraduate courses, and students must receive a grade of A- or better.

Qualifying Examination

The qualifying examination is an important checkpoint meant to show that a student is on a promising research track toward the PhD degree. It is a University examination, administered by the Graduate Council, with the specific purpose of demonstrating that "the student is clearly an expert in those areas of the discipline that have been specified for the examination, and that he or she can, in all likelihood, design and produce an acceptable dissertation." Despite such rigid criteria, faculty examiners recognize that the level of expertise expected is that appropriate for a third year graduate student who may be only in the early stages of a research project.

The EECS departments offers the qualifying exam in two formats A or B. Students may choose the exam type of their choice after consultation with their adviser.

Format A
  1. Students prepare a write-up and presentation summarizing a specific research area, preferably the one in which they intend to do their dissertation work. Their summary surveys that area and describes open and interesting research problems.
  2. They describe why they chose these problems and indicate what direction their research may take in the future.
  3. They prepare to display expertise on both the topic presented and on any related material that the committee thinks is relevant.
  4. The student should talk (at least briefly) about any research progress to date (e.g., MS project, PhD research, or class project). Some evidence of the ability to do research is expected.
  5. The committee shall evaluate students on the basis of their comprehension of the fundamental facts and principles that apply within their research area and the student’s ability to think incisively and critically about the theoretical and practical aspects of this field.
  6.  Students must demonstrate command of the content and the ability to design and produce an acceptable dissertation.
Format B

This option includes the presentation and defense of a thesis proposal in addition to the requirements of option A. It will include a summary of research to date and plans for future work (or at least the next stage thereof). The committee shall not only evaluate the student's thesis proposal and his/her progress to date, but shall also evaluate according to option A. As in option A, the student should prepare a single document and presentation, but in this case additional emphasis must be placed on research completed to date, and plans for the remainder of the dissertation research.

Thesis Proposal Defense

Students not presenting a satisfactory thesis proposal defense, either because they took option A for the QE, or because the material presented in an option B exam was not deemed a satisfactory proposal defense (although it may have sufficed to pass the QE), must write up and present a thesis proposal, which should include a summary of the research to date and plans for the remainder of the dissertation research. They should be prepared to discuss background and related areas, but the focus of the proposal should be on the progress made so far, and detailed plans for completing the thesis. The standard for continuing on with PhD research is that the proposal has sufficient merit to lead to a satisfactory dissertation. Another purpose of this presentation is for faculty to provide feedback on the quality of work to date. For this step, the committee should consist of at least three members from EECS familiar with the research area, preferably including those on the dissertation committee.

Normative Time in Candidacy

Advancement to Candidacy

Students must file the advancement form in the graduate office no later than the end of the semester following the one in which the qualifying exam was passed. In approving this application, Graduate Division approves the dissertation committee and will send a certificate of candidacy.

Dissertation Talk

As part of the requirements for the doctoral degree, students must give a public talk on the research covered by their dissertation. The dissertation talk is to be given a few months before the signing of the final submission of the dissertation. The talk should cover all the major components of the dissertation work in a substantial manner; in particular, the dissertation talk should not omit topics that will appear in the dissertation but are incomplete at the time of the talk.

The dissertation talk is to be attended by the whole dissertation committee, or, if this is not possible, by at least a majority of the members. Attendance at this talk is part of the committee's responsibility. It is, however, the responsibility of the student to schedule a time for the talk that is convenient for members of the committee.

Required Professional Development

Graduate Student Instructor Teaching Requirement

The department requires all PhD candidates to serve as graduate student instructors (GSIs) within the EECS department. The GSI teaching requirement not only helps to develop a student's communication skills, but it also makes a great contribution to the department's academic community. Students must fulfill this requirement by working as a GSI (excluding EL ENG 375, or COMPSCI 375) for a total of 30 hours minimum prior to graduation. At least 20 of those hours must be for an EE or CS undergraduate course.

Master's Degree Requirements (MS)

Unit requirements

A minimum of 24 units is required.

Curriculum

All courses must be taken for a letter grade, except courses numbered  299s, which are only offered for S/U credit.

Students must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. No credit will be given for courses in which the student earns a grade of D+ or below.

Transfer credit may be awarded for a maximum of 4 semester or 6 quarter units of graduate coursework from another institution.

Plan I
10 units of courses, selected from the 200-series (excluding 298 and 299) in EECS
EL ENG 299Individual Research4-10
or COMPSCI 299 Individual Research
Upper division or graduate courses to reach the minimum of 24 units
Plan II
10 units of courses, selected from the 200-series (excluding 298 and 299) in EECS
EL ENG 299Individual Research3-6
or COMPSCI 299 Individual Research
Upper division or graduate courses to reach the minimum of 24 units

Advancement to Candidacy

For both Plan I and Plan II MS students, students need to complete the departmental advance to candidacy form, have their research adviser sign it, and submit the form to the department. Once a student is advanced to candidacy, candidacy is valid for 3 years.

Capstone/Thesis (Plan I)

Students planning to use Plan I for their MS degree will need to follow the Graduate Division's “Thesis Filing Guidelines." They will also need to complete the “Graduate Division Advance to Candidacy” form and submit this to the department no later than the end of the second week of classes of their final semester.

Capstone/Master's Project (Plan II)

Students planning to use Plan II for their MS Degree will need to produce an MS Plan II Title/Signature Page. There is no special formatting required for the body of the Plan II MS report unlike the Plan I MS thesis which must follow strict Graduate Division guidelines.

Master's Degree Requirements (MEng)

Unit Requirements

The minimum number of units to complete the degree is 25 semester units.

Curriculum

Technical courses
12 units, two courses per semester, of approved technical courses12
Leadership courses
ENGIN 271Engineering Leadership I3
ENGIN 272Engineering Leadership II3
ENGIN 295Communications for Engineering Leaders (2 semesters required)1
ENGIN 296MAMaster of Engineering Capstone Project2
ENGIN 296MBMaster of Engineering Capstone Project3

Capstone/Master's Project (Plan II)

Students will join a team of three to five students and address a specific problem or opportunity that can be addressed by technology, gaining direct experience in applying the skills learned in leadership courses.

Professional Development Activities

The Fung Institute is offering optional coursework during the summer for incoming students in computational analytics. This will help MEng students improve their success in technical electives, capstone projects, and the job search.

Computation and data have become fundamental to engineering and business. Today’s professional engineer often needs to master a specific discipline—be it mechanical, or civil, or industrial engineering—and a set of computational tools and abilities to analyze data. The Berkeley MEng program provides a unique opportunity to accomplish both of these objectives, by providing an optional and unofficial Area of Emphasis in Computational Analytics. Earning the professional master's degree and fulfilling the requirements for the emphasis makes for a challenging year, though students can even out the workload by attending a course during summer session. This guide contains advice on appropriate elective courses and extracurricular activities.

If you would like to indicate an “Emphasis in Computational Analytics” on your resume, you should be taking at least TWO of the recommended or other possible courses from the list below. 

One of these course may be counted towards other MEng course requirements, only if it is offered in  your degree-granting department and approved as accepted towards your concentration. 

We also recommend being involved in at least one activity or workshop (e.g., hackathon or speaker series); see the following list for details. 

More information and a list of recommended electives can be found on their website.
