  1. Hello everyone. I have been accepted to two really great physics schools for my Ph.D. - MIT and Princeton. However, the admission to MIT is through the EECS department’s applied physics route while Princeton is just traditional physics (I also applied to MIT’s physics program but have not heard back from them. Considering all the acceptances that were sent out on Friday, I will assume that I have been rejected). My area of focus at the current moment is experimental condensed matter (CME) and quantum computing (QC). In this respect, MIT is stronger, but I am anxious about how the decision might affect a career path in academia. Ultimately, I want to be a professor of physics somewhere. I do NOT want to be a professor of engineering (I don’t have anything against engineers, I just would prefer to teach pure physics topics over engineering topics). Consequently, I don’t want an applied physics degree if it is going to significantly hurt my chances of getting a great physics postdoc or teaching position in the future, even if the degree is from MIT. I should also mention that I’m not entirely set on CME/QC - I very much enjoy these topics and most of my experience is in these areas, but I also have interests elsewhere. In particular, atomic physics (AMO, both experimental and theoretical) as well as condensed matter theory (CMT) seem fascinating to me. It does not seem likely that, if I were to do applied physics at MIT, I would be able to study theory. I’m sure I could squeeze in experimental AMO though. On the other hand, Princeton excels in theory altogether. As a disclaimer, I do not yet know of all of the academic restrictions at MIT’s applied physics route. That is, I don’t know whether or not I would be allowed to take pure physics courses (e.g., E&M, quantum, QFT if I go into CMT, etc) as an EECS student. This probably doesn’t matter too much if I go into experiment, but I better have access to these classes if I decide to go into theory (assuming I can even work with theorists as an EECS student). Lastly, I don’t know anything about how happy Princeton’s graduate students are versus MIT’s graduate students are, but this is obviously a big factor into where I go (how will I be able to do great research if I’m miserable?) Thank you you in advance for helping me come to a decision!
  2. Hi! UCLA EE undergrad student here. I applying to MS EE/EECS degree for Fall 2020. I am applying to the schools listed below. I heard that UCLA is known for its signal and system (?), but not 100% sure. I am wondering what EE/EECS specializations are these schools known for: 1. Caltech 2. UC Berkeley 3. UCLA 4. UC San Diego 5. UM-Ann Arbor 6. UIUC I am currently interested in VLSI, circuits, robotics, medical devices (I know... I will narrow it down...), any other suggestions for grad school would be great! Thanks in advance!
  3. 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.
  4. How is the application reviewed in the interview phase of EECS MS/PhD at UC Berkeley? If interviewed and accepted into the program, would the interviewer (by default) be the PhD supervisor? Or, is the student first accepted into the program and needs to find a research supervisor later? If the students are first accepted into the program and not by a specific advisor, how would funding be handled?

  6. Hi, Anyone applying to MIT EECS PhD programme this year? Does anybody know when they'll start considering applications? Results on the gradcafe main site vary in dates every year. I'd guess February? January if they invite you to an interview?
  7. Hello, I am a sophomore/junior at Pennsylvania State University in Computer Engineering. I plan to graduate in three years and I am conducting undergrad research. My cumulative GPA is 3.74/4.00. I want to attend grad school at a top 10-25 program in Machine Learning if possible. I wanted some advice on things I could do that could make me stand out and if shooting for top 10-25 programs is practical. Thanks
  8. Figured it would be helpful for us and future applicants to have an EECS topic similar to this one: Undergrad Institution: (School or type of school, such as big state, lib arts, ivy, technical, foreign (what country?))

  9. It's April 7th and I still haven't heard from UCLA. Is anyone on the same boat?
  10. Hi all, Just wondering if "Your Application Status" on the application page will ever change from submitted to something like "in review"? I have mine still displayed as "submitted". Today I just find out someone got the interview from the result page, so they definitely started reviewing. What happened is when I apply, I faces some difficulty when I pay. In the end I uploaded everything and payed but I didn't have time to press the submit button. (few seconds short..) After explanation they kindly accepted my application. I don't know if this will make me some sort of a second class applicant. Or even worse they won't review my application at all. I know, looks like needlessly panicking. But isn't this kind of stuff typical in "waiting it out" phase :P?
  11. I'm a bit confused about the coursework requirements for the Berkeley EECS PhD program. I've seen the Berkeley website on this, which says that I need... - one "Systems" breadth course - one "Theory" breadth course - one "Theory+Systems" breadth course - a total of 24 credit hours - at least a 3.5 GPA. Seriously? Only 24 credit hours (where a typical class is 3 credit hrs) of classes over 5+ years? Or, is this just a "lowest common denominator" requirements, and advisors suggest additional coursework? I know that the PhD is much more focused on research than coursework, but are the coursework requirements really this simple?
  12. Hi, I got a totally unexpected call from a professor from a top 10 school. I was in the middle of some simulations, and I could not concentrate on the gravity of the conversation. The professor basically said I have to be 100% committed to join her group, then she will ask the department to send me an acceptance letter. I said I am 100% sure and that she was the first professor to call me and that I have applied to some other universities too (she knew already, had to put that in the application form). However, I think my tone was not 100% sure - as I said I just got an unexpected call. She said - no problem, go to my research page, search on the internet and email me. The conversation was just 3 min 50secs long and most of the time she talked about her group (no research talk). She said she was impressed by my qualifications and my application and her needs students like me. I emailed her 15 minutes later, and reiterated my commitment. This happened 1 day ago. However, she has not replied yet and I have not heard from the department also. You have figured by now that I am getting a little paranoid. Does this happen often? Does this mean the professor was just checking if I was ready to join or not before she makes her offer, i.e, am I basically in? Should I email her again? After that I checked her profile and found out she was the world leading authority in that field.......don't even talk about it, she is great!
