The graduate program in Electrical Engineering of USP-São Carlos was created in 1975 with the Master of Science degree, extending to the Doctor of Science in 1997, which was officially recognized by CAPES in 2000 having its first doctorate thesis approved in this same year.

Along this trajectory, approximately 700 M.Sc. students and more than 250 D.Sc. students graduated from the program, with hundreds of papers published in periodicals with high impact factor (and a highlight to the CAPES Best Thesis Award – Engineering IV in 2008, aside from several other prizes in scientific events). The excellence of these works is acknowledged by the community by means of the consolidation of grade 07 (the maximum possible one) in the last evaluation made by CAPES, and also by its participation in the PROEX – Academic Excellence Program.

The objectives of the graduate program in Electrical Engineering of EESC-USP are the production of knowledge, the promotion of science and the generation of human resources with a wide understanding of their respective fields within the respective concentration áreas: Signal Processing and Instrumentation; Dynamic Systems; Power and Energy Systems and Telecommunications.

To reach these goals, the program regularly offers several courses which promote the structuring of knowledge within their concentration areas and support the development of M.Sc. and D.Sc. research. Pedagogical courses and opportunities of supervised teaching assistance are also offered. The whole set of activities is planned to enhance the body of knowledge of the students from both the theoretical/scientific and the technological viewpoints, preparing them not only for academic and research-based professional careers but also for working in the industry and services sectors.

Although the program is conceived for electrical, electronics and computing engineers, it has also room for students with different backgrounds, including other areas of engineering, mathematics, physical sciences and bachelors in computing science.
