Grad Advising

Current grad advisor for Power/Energy students: Prof. Ian Hiskens
Office hours are 2:00-3:00pm on Wednesday.

Before you meet with the grad advisor, fill out your plan of study. Bring it with you to the meeting.

For students in the (old) EE:S Program: You are not required to have your plan of study signed by an advisor until you are ready to graduate, but it is a good idea to do this at the beginning of each semester. Whether your plan is signed or not, you should give a copy (electronic or paper) to the MS or PhD Grad Coordinator. If you revise it, submit a new version.

Information for New Masters Students

  • Before you start selecting courses, read the Graduate Manual.
  • Most students take three classes (9-12 credits) in the fall term.
  • You must take at least one 500-level power/energy course to be a power/energy major. To learn which courses count/don't count towards your power/energy major and which courses count as cognates, meet with the grad advisor.
  • If you are interested in controls, you should take EECS 560 in the fall term. It is a prerequisite for essentially all graduate control courses. See Controls Courses at the University of Michigan.

Information for New Ph.D. Students

  • Before you start selecting courses, read the Graduate Manual.
