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

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

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
