The combined B.S.in Computer Science/M.S in Computer Engineering program allows students to earn a B.S. in Computer Science and an M.S. in Computer Engineering in 5 years. Up to 9 semester credit hours of graduate electives at the CS/CEG 6000/7000 may be double-counted and applied to both the B.S. and M.S degree requirements.

Admission Requirements

  • Full-time student
  • Computer science major
  • Have accumulated between 60 and 90 credit hours toward degree
  • Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.2
  • Overall GPA in computer science and engineering courses of at least 3.2
  • Complete the admission application

Once admitted to the program, the student must complete a program of study for the M.S. in Computer Engieering.

B.S. Program Learning Outcomes

Students who complete the B.S. in Computer Science will have:

  • An ability to apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the discipline
  • An ability to analyze a problem, and identify and define the computing requirements appropriate to its solution
  • An ability to design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs
  • An ability to function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal
  • An understanding of professional, ethical, legal, security and social issues and responsibilities
  • An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  • An ability to analyze the local and global impact of computing on individuals, organizations, and society
  • Recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in continuing professional development
  • An ability to use current techniques, skills, and tools necessary for computing practice
  • An ability to apply mathematical foundations, algorithmic principles, and computer science theory in the modeling and design of computer-based systems in a way that demonstrates comprehension of the tradeoffs involved in design choices.
  • An ability to apply design and development principles in the construction of software systems of varying complexity

M.S. Program Learning Outcomes

Graduates of the Master’s of Science program in Computer Engineering shall:

  • Have the ability to apply abstract reasoning to complex problems in computer engineering
  • Have the ability to solve a broad range of problems through the application of current computer engineering techniques
