For students who want to expand their technical expertise beyond their undergraduate major, the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) offers Master of Science (M.S.) degree in computer engineering. EECS has a long and distinguished record of graduate education, with many of our graduates placed in key positions in industry. Graduates from our master’s programs are well represented in such corporations as IBM, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Intel.
A bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or a STEM related field with a strong mathematics background from an accredited institution is required, with an average GPA of 3.0 or better. Core competency in Discrete Mathematics, Calculus, Data Structures, Computer Organization, and knowledge of programming languages (C, C++, Java, etc.) is preferred.
For international students: TOEFL computer-based score of 223 (Internet-based score 85; paper-based score 563) or better; GPA of 3.0/4.0 or better. Students with unique credentials might be considered with exceptions.

The M.S. in Computer Engineering requires students to complete 30 total credits including 12 credits of core courses and 18 credits of electives.
A maximum of 9 transfer credits for students admitted to the online programs. Transfer credits are certified after the students complete their course work requirements. Upon completion of course work, the College forwards the necessary paperwork to the Graduate School, which certifies any transfer credits (as well as the credits completed with us) prior to graduation.
This program is designed for students to be completed on a part-time basis.
