Admissions

Students applying for admission to the graduate program in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) must obtain an application for admission from the Howard University Graduate School for either electrical and computer engineering or computer science.

Special Admission Requirements

Master of Engineering
Admission preference to the master's program is given to those individuals who hold a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Electronics Engineering from an accredited institution, and who have accumulated an undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0 out of a possible 4.0, and have taken the following or equivalent undergraduate fundamental courses:

Fundamentals of Circuits, Fundamentals of Electronics. Fundamentals of Signals, Fundamentals of Electromagnetics, and Fundamentals of Digital Systems. GRE scores are required and used in admission decision. Applicants seeking admission without full satisfaction to the requirement of fundamental courses may be admitted in probation with mandatory registration and making B or above grade(s) in the courses not taken before. These probationary courses will not contribute credits toward the degree requirements. Individuals having a lower GPA or with degrees in other disciplines or branches of engineering may be provisionally admitted if their GRE scores are very high.

Doctor of Philosophy
Admission to the Ph.D. program is accorded those applicants holding a master's degree in electrical, computer, and electronics engineering from a nationally or regionally accredited institution and possessing a GPA at least 3.0 out of a possible 4.0. All applicants are required to have taken the following or equivalent undergraduate fundamental courses: Fundamentals of Circuits, Fundamentals of Electronics. Fundamentals of Signals, Fundamentals of Electromagnetics, and Fundamentals of Digital Systems. Applicants seeking admission without full satisfaction to the requirement of fundamental courses may be admitted in probation with mandatory registration and making B or above grade(s) in the courses not taken before. These probationary courses will not contribute credits toward the degree requirements. GRE scores are required. Admission will also be granted to those applicants with equivalent qualifications from foreign institutions.

International Applicants
