Computer Engineering M.S.
The plan in Computer Engineering leads to the master of science M.S. degree. Graduate study in this plan prepares
students to occupy leading roles in the development and use of computers and computer
systems. The plan in Computer Engineering addresses the evaluation, design and implementation
of computer systems for various applications.
The curriculum and faculty research emphasize the integration of systems design, software
applications and hardware design. Current specializations within the computer engineering
degree plan include computer control systems, industrial automation and robotics,
fault-tolerant computing, parallel processing, telecommunications and networking.
The plan consists of formal courses, laboratory work and research in one of the specialty
areas conducted under the guidance of a faculty adviser.
