Electrical and Computer Engineering
A guide for finding articles and other resources for electrical engineering.
Repositories of dissertations and theses submitted by PhD and masters students are good places to survey pre-publication research. Dissertations are usually very narrowly-focused thorough and in-depth explorations of a topic. Dissertations and theses are also excellent bibliography-mining territory. Because submitters of Masters and PhD theses and dissertations are required to conduct a comprehensive survey of the existing literature relevant to their question, these documents often contain useful literature reviews and contain meticulously compiled bibliographies.
Searching Dissertations & Theses
Dissertations and theses in Electrical and Electronic Engineering can be searched across institutions using ProQuest Dissertations and Theses.
Dissertations and Theses Global contains indexes, dissertations and some theses. Full-text is available for many dissertations and theses, including those from NYU.
Dissertations & Theses in Institutional Repositories
Many academic institutions host their own repositories of faculty and student research. In addition to dissertations and theses, institutional repositories often contain technical reports, datasets, conference papers and other files associated with conference presentations. The following is a list of some of the more robust institutional Computer Science repositories.
Carnegie Mellon’s institutional repository contains conference proceedings, working papers and technical reports, and theses in four separate collections relevant to Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The two main relevant collections are: the “Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering” and the “Robotics Institute” Of the two the “Robotics Institute” is more current.
