Master of Engineering in Computer Engineering and Computer Science

Major: CECS

Degree: MEN

Unit: Speed School of Engineering (SS)

Department: Computer Engineering and Computer Science

On entering Graduate Studies, the student selects a thesis track or non-thesis track. A student in the thesis track chooses an area of concentration for the master’s thesis and selects a sequence of program elective courses for the thesis concentration. A student in the non-thesis track chooses a CECS project after completing a sequence of elective courses for the project. The Master of Engineering degree is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc. under the criteria for Computer Engineering.

Master of Science Program in Computer Science
The department also offers a graduate program of study in the area of Computer Science leading to a Master of Science degree. This program is available for interested individuals who have an adequate background, but do not necessarily have a baccalaureate degree in engineering. Interested students should refer to the Graduate Catalog or to the department office for further information about the Master of Science program.


Graduate Certificates

Graduate students can apply for admission to the certificates in a) Data Mining or b) Network and Information Security while pursuing a masters or doctoral degree.


Ph.D in Computer Science and Engineering
The Computer Engineering and Computer Science Department (CECS) offers the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE). The CSE program is offered in collaboration with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department (ECE). Students interested in the Ph.D. program should consult the Graduate Catalog or the Coordinator of the CSE Ph.D. program.
