Welcome to School of Science and Computer Engineering
Engineering Division
The Chair of Engineering coordinates the degree plans in Computer Engineering, Software Engineering, Systems Engineering, and Engineering Management. Computer Engineering is accredited by the Computer Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET http://www.abet.org. Academics and faculty advisors oversees all aspects of the degree plans.
Bachelor's Degree Program
The Computer Engineering degree plan leads to the Bachelor of Science (BS). This course of instruction examines large and small computer systems for industrial, scientific, and business applications. A foundation in computer hardware and software, combined with engineering-level mathematics, prepares students for careers in computer-based industries. The plan also provides the groundwork for a graduate degree in Computer Engineering. More Information...
Why Pre-Engineering at UHCL?
By enrolling in a pre-engineering program at UHCL, student will have the opportunity to explore five different engineering degree paths at an affordable cost. It's a great way to test the waters of an engineering degree, before fully committing to the major. Throughout the program, students will be immersed in the physics, chemistry, mathematics and computer science instruction they need to be prepared for a future in engineering. While in Pre-Engineering, students will also enroll in typical university core curriculum and foundational curriculum courses. After completing the coursework, student may apply for admission to the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering upon satisfaction of UH transfer admission standards. These students may also retain the option to stay at UHCL, and obtain an Engineering degree from UHCL or transfer to any other university in the country. However, because engineering may be an extremely challenging course of study to some students, these students may determine that it is not an appropriate choice. Therefore, advisors will assist these students in finding a course of study that is best suited to their unique talents and interests. The ultimate priority is for every student to graduate successfully from a best-fit major. More Information...
Master's Degree Programs
The Computer Engineering degree plan leads to the Master of Science (MS). Graduate study prepares students to use computers and design sophisticated computer systems. Computer Engineering students evaluate, design, and set up computer systems for a variety of real-world functions. Curriculum and faculty research focuses on the integration of systems design, software applications, and hardware design. The Computer Engineering degree plan includes specific courses of study such as computer control systems, industrial automation and robotics, fault-tolerant computing, parallel processing, telecommunications, and networking. The plan combines formal courses, laboratory work, and research in each specialized area More Information...
The Software Engineering degree plan leads to the Master of Science (MS). Students explore the foundations, methodologies, and tools used to create and refine software-intensive systems. The plan carefully balances theory and practice to prepare students for key roles in industry, government, and other institutions that depend on software. The academic plan results in a thorough understanding of software engineering. More Information...
The Systems Engineering degree plan leads to the Master of Science (MS). The course of study prepares engineers who are knowledgeable in interdisciplinary systems engineering approaches and engineering management. Graduates of this coursework develop a full range of concurrent engineering concepts. They build upon skills needed to specify, implement, and support complete systems. Graduates build a body of knowledge they need to create and maintain systems that ensure the safety of life, health, property, and the environment. The formal courses, laboratory work, and research all take place under the guidance of a faculty advisor. More Information...
The Engineering Management degree plan leads to the Master of Science (MS). The course of study prepares engineers and scientists with an enhanced perspective on issues that affect the management of technology in today's world. The material is prepared to present the tools to better manage your project, processes, personnel, products and services in real-world situations. The program courses focus on essential topics in organizational behavior, management of organizations, optimal decision-making, and engineering economics. More Information...
