The CECS Graduate Programs Committee (GPC) reviews and recommends proposals for changes to degree programs, tracks, certificates, and courses; suspension or inactivation of degree programs, tracks, certificates, and courses; and additions of new tracks, certificates, and courses. These changes are then advanced the College of Graduate Studies. Additionally, GPC recommends new policies and procedures or changes to existing policies and procedures with regard to graduate education in the College of Engineering and Computer Science. Some university fellowship nominations are processed through GPC.

The committee consists of one graduate program coordinator (voting members) from each department, the department-level graduate program assistants (non-voting), and faculty and/or staff coordinators (non-voting) corresponding to special graduate programs (e.g., MS Digitial Foresnics, MS Data Analyitcs, MS and PhD in Modeling and Simulation). The committee is chaired by the Associate Dean for Graduate Affairs and coordinated by various staff from the College of Engineering and Computer Science.
