World-class research and technology development. Work with renowned engineering faculty in UToledo’s cutting-edge labs, some of which are funded by the National Science Foundation. Students also have access to the latest computer equipment and design software, including Cadence, Xilinx Vivado, MatLab, Synopsis Saber, Synopsis Sentaurus and more.
Industry collaboration. There’s no better way to learn how to apply what you learn than through solving real-world problems. Our Industrial Partnerships program fosters cooperation with industry through joint research projects, symposia and short courses.
Entrepreneurship and technology commercialization. Our industrial partnerships are supported by UToledo’s LaunchPad incubation program. Startup companies work with UToledo faculty and students to bring next-generation technologies to the marketplace.
Financial assistance. Master’s and doctoral students are eligible for stipends and tuition waivers by earning fellowships, as well as research and teaching assistantships.
Accelerated study. High-performing students in the electrical engineering master’s program have the unique opportunity to transfer to the Ph.D. program before finishing their master’s degree.
Graduate orientation program. Prospective students can participate in this program, which normally takes place in the beginning of fall semester. Contact the Office of Graduate Studies and Research at 419.530.7391 or EngGradStudies@utoledo.edu.

"At the beginning, it was daunting to pursue graduate studies as an international student in the U.S. However, the kind and pleasant demeanor of the faculty members and staff in the electrical engineering program at The University of Toledo helped me get acquainted with the program curriculum quite easily. The course work was challenging but fair. The quality classroom education facilitated with advanced technologies aided me tremendously."
Atul Debnath, M.S.
"The highly qualified and knowledgeable professors in the electrical engineering program helped me get a full grasp of the program curriculum within a short period of time. I was exposed to challenging and advanced courses in electrical engineering. The quality education, including research labs and classrooms equipped with new technologies, enhanced my presentation and communication skills as a student."
Fathi Amsaad, Ph.D.
UToledo’s electrical engineering program offers a state-of-the-art curriculum using the latest technology. We recently launched a new, required course in embedded systems. Through laboratory projects, students use Texas Instruments Tiva boards with ARM Cortex M4 microcontrollers to complete laboratory projects. They transform their designs for such things as a simple digital piano or traffic-light controller into an embedded system.
