Graduate Studies


The faculty in ECE at Rice perform experimental and theoretical research in control and system theory, signal processing, communications, bioengineering, computer systems engineering, solid state devices, and quantum electronics. In their graduate work, students actively participate in both the experimental and theoretical aspects of this research. The laboratories are well-equipped to support cutting-edge research. Frequent research seminars - both formal and informal - create a dynamic research atmosphere and close student-faculty interaction.
