    If you want a literal student/faculty ratio:

    912 faculty
    6776 graduate students
    = 7.4 grad student / faculty

    What you're probably asking is the number of students / advisor in MS and PhD programs. That will depend on the program.

    I'm going to do the MSECE program, and wanted to know the ratio for students versus professors, hence, student/faculty ratio... With that information I will have an idea of how much of interaction will I be able to get with professors

    interaction with the professor varies by professor. If you get GRA position with head of department professor, expect that you will likely to report and see post-doc student under that professor most of the time. Just depends on professors.
