The Master of Science degree in Computer Engineering is designed to offer the students the opportunity to prepare for leadership roles in careers with industry, government, or educational institutions.
Students enrolled in the M.S. Degree program in Computer Engineering have two different options to obtain their degree:
A thesis option is offered for students who want the opportunity to obtain expertise in research and who may be interested in pursuing the doctoral degree in computer engineering or electrical engineering.
A non-thesis option is offered for students who want a practical industrial applications-oriented degree.
The Ph.D. program in Electrical Engineering M.S. program in Electrical Engineering and M.S. program in Computer Engineering offer opportunities in both advanced course work and research project to prepare students for leadership roles in engineering careers with industry, government, or educational institutions.
Our graduate programs stress both theoretical and practical aspects of Electrical and Computer Engineering by combining the teaching and research expertise of the University community with the resources of other San Antonio research institutions.
The Graduate Faculty in Electrical and Computer Engineering are very active in conducting cutting-edge research projects which provide both research experiences and financial supports for our graduate students.
The research in our graduate programs at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering mainly focuses on five concentrations:Communications
For more research projects, please refer to the Computer Engineering Faculty Research website.
Our graduate courses are offered mostly in afternoon and evening. About half of courses are taught in the afternoon (2 p.m. – 5 p.m.) and another half in the evening (5 p.m. – 8:15 p.m.).
After graduation, our MS and PhD graduates are employed as engineers or researcher in research firms and industries.
Some of our former doctorate students are working in universities as faculty members.
