Course info


The computer engineering masters focuses on the design and development of computer and computer-integrated systems, with consideration to such engineering factors as function, performance, security, and sustainability. Computer engineers design and build these systems to meet application and system requirements with attention to the hardware-software interaction. The program emphasizes the careful adoption of design methodology and the application of sophisticated engineering tools. The intensive programming and laboratory work requirements ensure significant, high level, specialized knowledge and experience with modern facilities and state-of-the-art design tools.

The MS degree in computer engineering provides students with a high level of specialized knowledge in computer engineering, strengthening their ability to successfully formulate solutions to current technical problems, and offers a significant independent learning experience in preparation for further graduate study or for continuing professional development at the leading edge of the discipline. The program accommodates applicants with undergraduate degrees in computer engineering or related programs such as electrical engineering or computer science. (Some additional bridge courses may be required for applicants from undergraduate degrees outside of computer engineering).

Program goals and learning objectives

The MS in computer engineering prepares graduate students to:

  • demonstrate independent learning, which is necessary in order to update their skills in a changing workplace and economy, and
  • successfully formulate solutions to current technical problems in computer engineering or related disciplines.

The program's student learning outcomes are:

  • Tools and Techniques: The ability to utilize state-of-the-art tools and techniques in the field of computer engineering.
  • Depth: A depth of knowledge in a specialty area of computer engineering.
  • Research: The ability to perform independent research.

Plan of study

The degree requires one required course, two flexible core courses, four graduate electives, two semesters of graduate seminar, and options to conduct thesis research or a graduate project. The core courses and graduate electives provide breadth and depth of knowledge. The Computer Engineering Graduate Seminar (CMPE-795) provides students with exposure to the state-of-the-art research in computer engineering and related disciplines.
