Rice University publishes its “General Announcements” (GA) each year. These are the official rules of the university and include the honor code that every student agrees to abide by, as well as forms and research information. They can be found at ga.rice.edu. Two sections of this are of particular importance to graduate students in ECE. The first is the section titled “Graduate Degree Programs.” This outlines the basic rules and expectations for all graduate students at Rice University. The second, titled “Programs of Study,” is the department-specific information. This information covers the degree requirements for the M.E.E. and more information is found in Section V of this handbook. The ECE M.E.E. section of the General Announcements can be found here.
