The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science offers master of engineering, master of science, and doctoral degrees in computer science and electrical and computer engineering. The school encourages students to develop programs of study in close cooperation with the faculty members.

For information about our graduate program components and requirements, application and admissions processes, and financial support options for EECS graduate students, please follow these links:

Computer Science

Graduate programs in computer science prepares students for careers in data science and engineering, artificial intelligence and robotics, cybersecurity, networking and computer systems, software engineering and human computer interaction, programming languages, theoretical computer science, health engineering, computer graphics and visualization, and computer science education.

Electrical and Computer Engineering

Areas of specialty in electrical and computer engineering at Oregon State include electronic materials and devices, integrated electronics, energy systems, communications and signal processing, networking and computer systems, and health engineering.

Interdisciplinary Programs

In addition, students majoring in electrical and computer engineering or computer science can choose the following interdisciplinary programs:

Artificial Intelligence

The AI program is interdisciplinary and trains Ph.D. and Masters students in the core topics of AI and offers a large set of electives that gives them opportunities to specialize in different sub-areas and applications of AI. The program is open to students from any undergraduate discipline with appropriate mathematical and programming background and accommodates flexible curricular paths.

Materials Science

The materials science program at Oregon State University is spread over nine different departments spanning three OSU colleges. In EECS, research activities in materials science include amorphous oxide semiconductors, photovoltaics, advanced materials for beyond CMOS, novel devices, thin films, nanomaterials and nanolaminates, applied magnetics, atomic layer deposition, internal photoemission, MIM diodes, nanophotonic devices, fiber sensors, pulsed diode lasers, and optical properties of materials.


The Robotics graduate program at Oregon State spans disciplines in the College of Engineering, with core faculty from Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, and Electrical & Computer Engineering. Students may earn Ph.D., M.S. degrees in Robotics or choose an appropriate double major, such as Robotics and Computer Science, to appear on their diplomas. In EECS, research in artificial intelligence and robotics studies theory, algorithms, and systems for making intelligent decisions in complex and uncertain environments.
