Continue your education with a Master of Science in Computer Engineering degree. This program covers hardware and the integration of hardware and software. You can explore the subject by choosing our thesis or non-thesis options.
We have a mixture of courses available during the day, evening, or online, making it easier for working professionals to pursue this degree. When you graduate, you will be able to use current computer engineering techniques to solve a broad range of problems.
Program strengths include:
A solid background in these core computer science skills will help you in your graduate degree studies:
The entire program requires no less than 30 semester hours of coursework. This includes the Computer Science core courses and the completion of the thesis or non-thesis option.
Computer Science and Computer Engineering courses at the 6000 level and above can be used toward your degree. Program level prerequisites, including CEG 6350 Operating System Internals and Design, do not qualify.
View the Master of Science in Computer Engineering program information, outcomes, and requirements in the University Catalog.
At least one year of formal coursework in computer programming. Formal coursework in data structures, computer organization, and operating systems is also required.
The materials covered in these courses should be equal to Wright State University courses:
If you do not have a year of formal coursework in computer programming, you may show programming proficiency by:
Students lacking other prerequisite coursework may be assigned additional prerequisite courses upon admission.
The admission process is competitive. If you are interested in the Master of Science in Computer Engineering program, you must meet the following requirements:
A Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related field. We prefer this to come from an ABET accredited program.
The GRE requirement is waived:
If you do not meet the admission requirements you may still be considered for admission. We will take into account your current academic achievements when making this decision. This includes the following.
