M.S.Cmp.E. in Computer Engineering (CENG)

General

Program Description

Computer engineers deal with both software and hardware. As a computer engineer, you could design entire computer systems and networks, making sure that the hardware, or physical equipment, is capable of running the appropriate software. You might build devices such as retinal scanners that identify people by checking their eyes, or you could design computers that are incorporated into prosthetic devices to aide people with disabilities.

Those who continue onward to obtain a graduate degree in either computer science or computer engineering learn to advance the frontiers of science. With an MS or PhD, you will invent the new technologies that enable the next generation of software and computing devices.

Graduates with Computer Science or Computer Engineering M.S. degrees go on to doctoral programs, high-tech companies, or to challenging positions in other industry sectors. They have a strong breadth and depth in their field that can be the basis for future innovations or advanced applications.
