Preliminary Exam

  • MS Comprehensive / PhD Preliminary Exam Schedule

    Ph.D. preliminary examination is combined with the M.S. Comprehensive Exam. A Ph.D. candidate is required to pass the exam at the Ph.D. level. To do this, a student must typically get a higher score than what is necessary to pass at the M.S. level. To take the exam, the students must register by notifying the Graduate Student Services Advisor at least one month prior to the exam date.

    The follow dates are for the Electrical and Computer Engineering Ph.D. Preliminary Exams:

    • December 18, 2019 
    • June 17, 2020 (subject to change)
  • EE 260 Seminar Courses offered 2018-2019 for the Comprehensive/Preliminary Exams

PhD Defense and Dissertation

  • Departmental Requirements and Deadlines
    • Two weeks prior to your defense, you should do both of the following:
      1. Complete the with your defense information.
      2. Email the completed file as a word document to ecegradoffice@ece.ucr.edu
    • One week in prior to your defense, send your written dissertation to your entire committee
  • Graduate Division Requirements and Deadlines
    • Please read the full Graduation Procedures and Requirements here
    • Dissertation/Thesis Filing Checklist - Information regarding filing the dissertation/thesis and graduation requirements
    • Signature Approval Page
      • You are required to submit a Signature Approval Page to Graduate Division.
      • Check out the sample Signature Approval Page, which is the form the thesis/dissertation committee signs to approve the written document.
      • The signed version is not included in the PDF of the document you upload. You'll need to submit this separately, as a hard copy, to Graduate division by 12PM on the posted deadline. You will not graduate without an original version.
      • Only original signatures can be accepted. No scans, e-signatures, faxes, etc can be used to sign this form. All committee members must sign the same page. Students should plan well in advance of the deadline to get the required signatures.
    • Helpful Hints for the Signature Approval Page
      • If you have a committee member who's not local/unavailable to sign in person, please begin the process of having the form signed at least a month in advance. Mailing the form will be required.
      • Some committees are willing to sign before the dissertation is complete and have a trusted staff or faculty member hold it until the revisions are complete.
      • Have your committee sign the signature approval page while at your defense.
      • If a committee member is in another country or far away, email the blank page to them. They can print, sign, and then mail it back for other members. It's best to have the member furthest away sign first.
