Degree Prep The ideal candidate for the master’s program in Computer Engineering will hold a bachelor’s in Computer Engineering from an accredited institution and demonstrate a strong background in the fundamentals of computer engineering, computer programming, electronics, mathematics, chemistry and physics.

If your undergraduate degree is not in Computer Engineering, you will be required to complete background courses to remove deficiencies before beginning the graduate program.
Degree Roadmap During the first semester, a faculty member is appointed to serve as your major professor/mentor. You work closely with your major professor to prepare and submit a study plan for approval as early in the semester as possible. Both a nonthesis (M.Engr.) option and a thesis (M.S.) option are available for master's and Ph.D. students.
