The Master’s Degree in Computer Engineering is a course of study intended to prepare individuals whose undergraduate background is in computer or electrical engineering for advanced professional work in the field and for further study leading to the doctorate. Emphasis is placed on current state-of-the-art applications including parallel computing, image processing, VLSI design, sensing, robotics, mobile computing, automation and the like.
Customized study plans to allow receiving the Computer Engineering M.S. degree while pursuing either the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering or the Ed.D. degree in Education are available. Doctoral students in these two programs should consult their respective doctoral advisors to work on their individualized plans.
Admission to the program requires an undergraduate degree in engineering, and includes the following fundamental course work:
- Programming Languages and Techniques
- Data Structures
- Digital Design
- Digital Design Lab
- Computer Organization
- Probability and Statistics
Applicants with superior academic credentials but lacking the required background can be admitted subject to their taking the necessary preparatory courses. Applicants are expected to have an average of B or better in their undergraduate coursework.
