Master of Science in Computer Engineering
Computer Engineering is a relatively new discipline, but its popularity and relevance has grown tremendously with the recent proliferation of digital computers in our daily lives.
The Master of Science in Computer Engineering (MSCE) program in the Department of EECS has three areas of primary focus:
- Hardware Systems: including design and test of VLSI systems, performance and analysis of complex hardware systems, design methodology based on formal methods and CAD tools.
- Software Systems: including development of large software systems, analysis of performance of programs, design of reusable software.
- Assured Systems: including computer and network security, formal methods, and verification. More details about these focus areas are given at the end of this section.
The MSCE program requires a minimum of 30 credit hours of graduate work beyond the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree. Normally, these 30 credit hours are achieved by students taking 10 graduate courses. This program has three components: core courses, courses to fulfill a track, and elective courses.
