Overview | Careers

The Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science offers two options for a Master of Science in Computer Engineering (MSCE): a non-thesis option that requires a minimum of 30 credits, and a thesis option that requires a minimum of 30 credits, including 6 credits of thesis. The MSCE  program offers students the opportunity to develop a Plan of Study customized to their own career goals and interests, in consultation with an academic advisor.

Most graduate courses are available in a “Distance Learning” format: they are video streamed live, posted and downloadable online the same day as the lecture.  Students may be required to take exams either on campus or at an approved testing center.

Applications for admission to the master’s program who meet the MSCE Admission requirements are approved by the University upon the recommendation of the Department.
