  1. Hello, I received offers from CU Boulder and NCSU in MS Electrical Engineering and now deciding what to choose. My area of interest are analog circuits, devices, RF/Microwave. Especially, I like practical side of learning, to clarify I like to create meaningful devices rather than write paper. Moreover, I expect to improve my skills in using instruments and CAD programs. Both schools seems solid in these aspects, but I was unable to find more detailed information from real engineers. Location and city are also important. I heard that Boulder prohibits expansion, so is it hard to find apartment (condo) in good condition, 1bd (or studio) with washing machine in unit ? About Raleigh I have not much information. P.S. I am still waiting answer from UCLA but chances are close to zero, so it is probably better even not to wait them because deadline is approaching.

    UIUC vs CMU for PhD in ECE

    Hi everyone,I shortlisted the schools down to UIUC and CMU but can't decide on which to attend. My future plans is to stay in academia with postdocs at top schools (perhaps at MIT or Stanford) but I don't want closed doors to the industry. Here are the good vs bad things about both of these schoolsUIUCGood: The PI is highly reputed very famous in contro&gamel theory. The school is also ranked higher in ECE (US News). Very strong faculty members. In addition, I will be working on multi-agent reinforcement learning which I am quite interested in.Bad: I am not quite sure if this would be a criterion when choosing grad schools but Urbana-Champaign is in the middle of nowhere, isolated by cornfields in every direction. I am coming from a big city so I am not sure if I can get used to such a small and isolated place. Another drawback is that the PI's research is very theoretical which I am fine with but students in the lab told me that I will be closing my chances of working in the industry. Finally, PI is very senior so that means I will be doing most of the work.CMUGood: Compared to UC, Pittsburgh is a more vivid and bigger city. CMU is also very great for its school of CS and PI(s) there are also affiliated to the ML department. Being private school can also be regarded as something positive. The stipend is also much better. I will be doing machine learning, optimization, and signal processing if I attend CMU.Bad: PI(s) are assist/assoc professors and they are way less reputed compared to the PI in UIUC. Rankings CMU ECE is lower compared to UIUC. Final remarks: I like the research and the academic environment in UIUC but I have concerns about living in Urbana-Champaign. CMU is very good at CS but I am tempted to work with a famous yet senior professor. I am open to any comments/views/ideas about these schools.Thanks and good luck to everyone!

    UCLA vs UCSD MS in ECE

    I have gotten admission offers from both UCLA and UCSD for MS in ECE. UCLA is for Signals and Systems track, and UCSD is for Communication Theory. As evident from the MS specialisation, I am interested in Signals & Systems and Communication Theory. I feel course wise both schools are at par. I am interested in knowing how are the prospects of finding internships are jobs henceforth. If anyone had a similar choice to make, what and why did you choose one over another?
  4. So I am deciding between UCSD and Purdue for my graduate study (ECE). Here are some of my own analysis: UCSD Better internship/job opportunities Better location. In CA near Silicon Valley Sunshine beaches seals!!! Better overall reputation Purdue Better chance to receive funding Easier to transfer to PhD program (Slightly) better ranking in ECE Cheaper living expenses I'm positive to continue pursuing a PhD after MS study, so if just considering chance of admission to PhD program I'd vote for Purdue since I was told by UCSD admission office that chance of transfering to PhD program is rare. However, I visited SD in March and I LOVEEEE that city! I already spent four years in midwest and I'm not so much a fan of it. If I ended up finishing my MS and hopefully PhD in Purdue, that's gonna be six years, and I honestly don't know if I can handle another six-year cold and snowy weather. Neither promised me with funding but seems that chance of receiving funding is better in Purdue. Open to all ideas/comments/suggestions. --------------------------Some Add-ons---------------------- UCSD track: Robotics, Intelligence and Control Purdue track: Signal Processing UCSD has limitations on course registrations outside my track while Purdue does not.

    Is MS in ECE at Duke worth the debt?

    Hello everyone, I have received admits from both DUke and NCSU. In Duke I have been offered MS in ECE whose cost is $77,000 for one academic year but the program rank is in top 20's according to USNEWS. The other admit is from NCSU for MS in Computer Engineering. Now, though the rank of the program is in top 40's but the program cost is $45,000 ish. Living expenses are similar due to them being close to each other. I am in a dilemma, whether to go for the better program with high cost, for which I will be taking loans or to go for the low price and okayish program. Also, Duke has a very strong alumnus and reputation. It's ECE program offers various software courses of my interest. My question basically is that which University is better in terms of placement? In which University will I get better returns?(keeping in mind the cost of the programs) If you guys have more points that I should take into consideration, kindly feel free to post it. Thank you

    MENG F2019 McGill University

    Hi everyone, just decided to create a thread for McGill ECE Grad Applicants as I didn’t see a dedicated one for that. So feel free to add any input.
  7. Hi Y'all Looking at the lack of dedicated threads for EE/ECE and Computer Engineering students/prospective-grads to share their admits/applications/interviews information, I wanted to create a separate topic for it in which all of us prospective grad students can contribute, share our admit/interview experiences for the benefit of all. This would get a dialogue started where hopefully all of us can learn and contribute something.
  8. Physics major applying to electrical engineering. Got two offer letters. 1) UPenn ESE PhD: Advisor assigned. This advisor is talented but young, there are only two phd students in his lab (although there are lots of masters and undergraduates). Research interest is 2D materials and device physics, which I have done for 2 years. I am afraid that I need to take lots of physics courses because of need. Reputation. UPenn is a prestigious school and is part of Ivy League, I guess its reputation is way better than gatech. Please point it out if I am being wrong. However, UPenn's engineering ranking is not as good as gatech. 2) Gatech ECE PhD Advisor NOT assigned. I can choose from 100 professors. It is general admission so I can study whatever I like. I am excited to try some computational research instead of experimental research (I have done it for 2 years). I can study robotic, control theory, complex network.. In short, whatever I like. I can take math courses and computer science courses. However, I do not know the reputation of gatech. I assume it is not bad in engineering but is it as good as UPenn? or better? Very good ranking in engineering and robotic. I have to decide in two days.. It is really a dilemma to me..
  9. Hello everyone, I have been having trouble lately matching my profile with potential MS ECE programs and would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me with shortlisting potential MS programs to apply to. I aim to apply mostly to universities in Canada and Europe, basically anywhere but the US (as I won't be able to take the GRE in time). I am also mainly looking for research/thesis based degrees, and preferably RA/TA funded degrees. My profile: Undergrad: B.Sc. ECE from an unknown institution internationally, but known regionally and undoubtedly one of the best nationally, Score: 83%. Research Interest: Electromagnetics and optics. IELTS: 9. Publications: 1 Accepted international conference paper in my field of interest. Research Experience: A few undergrad RA experiences/internships (summer internships during undergrad). I have been working as an RA for the last few months, potentially a couple more publications are in the works. Which Canadian/European/Australian/Asian universities can I target with this profile for example for a funded research based MSc. degree? I don't want to waste time and money applying to prestigious institutions where I have no chance, so I would like to know where my 'level' is so to speak. I am an EU citizen if that makes any difference. Would really appreciate any feedback, please let me know if any extra info is needed. TIA .
  10. Hello guys, I got accepted into ECE MEng at UIUC and CS MS at UCSD. I wonder which programs will help me more in my future career. I have good background in CS and already got an internship in big company this summer. Could you please share your suggestions and reasons? Many thanks.
  11. So which of the two is better? MS ECE in NCSU vs MEng ECE Virginia Tech. I chose these mainly for embedded systems, but in a dilemma now. Course wise NCSU is spread out while Virginia tech is specific to certain areas but both are good in heir own way. Please suggest tips on how to proceed or suggest which school to choose. It would also great if someone told about each of the programs at these schools in general.

    How can I do better next time?

    I'm an international student waiting to hear from McGill, Ottawa, Queens and Waterloo. I have applied for a researched based masters program in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) with a specialization in Computer Vision. My application was done somewhat in a rush (under 8 weeks). I also didn't realize that contacting professors is necessary to get into a research based program so I'm somewhat skeptical I will get in. My profile is: GPA: 82% (First Class) from a UK university. Every university seems to make their own equivalency but my guess is it ranges from 3.7 to 4.0. Research Experience: I do not have any formal research experience unless we count my project in my Bachelors. I do, however, have extensive work experience (6 years) in the specialization I am seeking (Computer Vision) which I elaborate on in my SOP. It is extremely difficult for me to gain research experience before the next cycle due to 1) my job 2) next to no opportunities in the country I live in. Letters or Recommendation: Very strong (I think). However, the culture of writing letters in the UK is very different compared to what is expected in North America. The letters are brief and mention my ability to take on a graduate degree and that I was a good student. One letter is from my advisor for first 2 years of my degree and another is from the head of department. 3rd letter is from my employer. No GRE. SOP: Strong, elaborates on my work in the past 6 years. Question: how can I make my profile stronger for the next cycle?
  13. Hello, I have received an admit from ECE CMU and ECE Georgia Tech. My interest lies in computer architecture, FPGAs, digital design and hardware acceleration. I feel the course of CMU is better than Georgia Tech. But I am confused whether ECE CMU really worth spending extra 30K USD? At Georgia, I will have a better opportunity of getting an RA or TA. At CMU, program is professional masters while at Georgia I have an option to choose Thesis . I request you to please provide a better comparison of two programs from the perspective of my technical interests. Any help is appreciated.

  15. Hello all, it has been 10 days since I accepted my offer at U of Toronto's ECE app. website, after which they sent me an email saying that they'll start working on my offer papers and send them to me when they're done. How long should I wait before sending them a reminder ? Thanks
  16. According to their website, each department at UCLA has allocated housing places and offer them to their students. Do you know how the departments (especially ECE) choose those students?
  17. Hi all, I have received an official offer from school A with a deadline on Feb. 27th. Recently, a POI from school B (my 1st preference) gave me an unofficial offer and told me that he has asked the grad office to send me the offer, however school B won't be able to generate the offer before Feb.27th (school regulations). So, should I ask for an extension at school A ? or should I trust POI at school B and decline my offer at A ?

    NYU PhD ECE

    anyone heard from NYU ECE PhD?
  20. Hi all, I had an interview with a potential supervisor over Skype before applying to his university (in Canada). He offered me an unofficial offer and asked me to apply. However, he also asked me to give him my decision within two weeks (and this was even before the deadline of the university application, so way before getting any offers from other professors at his university or at other universities) and stated that it won't be appropriate to turn it down later. Since by this time I didn't have any offers, I accepted his offer as I thought it is good enough and I shouldn't leave the opportunity as I don't know my chances to be accepted at a better school or with a better professor. Recently, I got an offer from another professor at the same university as well as an offer from another university (both are a better research fit than my former unofficial offer). Is it appropriate to decline his offer and go to the same university ? What will be the most polite and respectful way to decline his offer ? Thanks
  21. What is the main difference between pursuing grad. studies in North America or Europe regarding to research culture, future opportunities. student life,....etc (Electrical and Computer Engineering)?
  22. Hello all, Should I turn down UofT for UBC if the research at UBC fits me a bit more than UofT ? (Both fully funded MSc in ECE)
  23. Hello all, I'm an international student who has an offer from both UofT and UBC for MSc degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering with funding. UBC's supervisor is slightly more of research fit than UofT's supervisor. Funding comes with TA duties at UBC and with none at UofT. How to base my decision between the two ?

    CMU ECE PhD Decision

    Hi! I applied to CMU for admission to Ph.D. in ECE, specializing in DSP. I applied for the fall 2017 term. I haven't heard back from them. I have been contacting them every fortnight and all I get is the generic "do-not-reply" kind of email response. In addition, the online portal has remained unchanged since the completion of the application. Is this normal? Is there any other way of checking my decision? Also, can I still hope to get an admit after this delay? Thanks in advance!
