The complexity of software and hardware systems calls for today’s computer engineers to be concerned with power consumption, security, and reliability not just functional correctness. This master’s program trains students to design hardware, software, and networking systems for the computers of today and tomorrow.

The program leading to the M.S. degree in computer engineering is jointly administered between the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Department of Computer Science. Master's degrees require a minimum of 30 credit hours and the fulfillment of at least 10 courses with grades of S (satisfactory) or at least a B-.

At least four lecture-based courses must be taken from a published list of computer engineering core courses. From these core courses, at least one course must be taken from each of the following three core areas:

  • Computer Networking
  • Computer Architecture
  • Computer Software/Systems

Application Requirements

  • Application Fee
  • Resume/CV
  • Personal Statement
  • Official GRE scores
    • GRE not required for current Tufts undergraduates applying to the M.S. degree program
    • GRE scores may be waived for part-time students with five years of industry experience who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Visit go.tufts.edu/engmasters for complete details. If you believe you are eligible to have the GRE waived based on these requirements, please contact gradadmissions@tufts.edu with the subject line “Engineering part-time Master's GRE requirement"
