Students choose their own advisor. It is expected that you will identify an advisor during or before your second semester on campus. You are encouraged, however, to initiate conversations with faculty in ECE department to help define your research interests, identify potential funding sources, and determine courses that might best support your interests.
Students also choose their own research topic. The Department does have four major research thrusts in Signals and Systems, Computer Engineering, Electro-physics, and Power and Energy.
