The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of North Texas offers coursework leading to a Master of Science degree in Computer Engineering.

You have two options for earning a master’s degree.

  • The thesis option requires 30 credit hours of coursework, including 6 credit hours of thesis.
  • The non-thesis option requires 36 credit hours of coursework. That may include 3 credit hours of a project or 6 credit hours of the problem in lieu of a thesis.

You can select a specialization area in consultation with a major professor and the graduate coordinator.
