Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The combined B.S. in Computer Engineering/M.S. in Computer Science program allows students to earn a B.S. in Computer Engineering and an M.S. in Computer Science 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 engineering 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 Science.

B.S. Program Learning Outcomes

Students who complete the Bachelor of Science in computer engineering will have:

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  • An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • An ability to communicate effectively
  • The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  • A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  • A knowledge of contemporary issues an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

M.S. Program Learning Outcomes

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