Welcome to the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS) at UC Berkeley! With over 120 affiliated faculty members, close to 2000 undergraduate students, and over 500 graduate students, we are the largest department at "Cal." The distinction of the EECS faculty is evident from a long list of prestigious awards which recognize outstanding contributions in research and/or teaching.

EECS spans all of information science and technology and has applications in a broad range of fields, from medicine to the social sciences. Indeed, many members of our department are housed in the headquarters building of the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS), which involves researchers from many departments across the Berkeley campus and also at other UC campuses working together to develop technological solutions to societal-scale problems such as sustainable energy, health care, and safety and security. CITRIS is just one of many research centers through which we innovate and transfer new technologies while creating new knowledge. Our faculty and alumni have started not only many companies but also new industries based on client/server computing, electronic design automation, RISC (reduced instruction set computing) processors, relational databases, RAID (redundant array of independent disks) servers, and portable communication, to name just a few examples.

Program requirements

The minimum graduate admission requirements are:A bachelor's degree or recognized equivalent from an accredited institution. If you are in your final year of studies and you expect to earn your degree by mid-August of the following year, you may apply. If you are admitted, you will be required to provide proof at that time that you have earned your bachelor's degree, usually in the form of a final official transcript.If you attended an American university or a university that uses a similar 4.0 scale, a satisfactory scholastic average with a minimum grade-point average (GPA) of 3.0 (B) is required. If you attended a university that does not use the 4.0 system, please do not try and convert your grades to our system - leave that section blank on your application.Three (3) Letters of Recommendation uploaded as PDFs through the link provided in the online application. Your letters could include details about your goals, research accomplishments, technical and leadership skills, academic work, etc. We suggest to give your recommenders at least a few weeks to write your letters.The General Test of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).
