The mission of the Computer Engineering program at Missouri University of Science and Technology, consistent with the Missouri S&T campus mission statements, is the education of students to fully prepare them to provide leadership in the recognition and solution of society’s problems in the area of computer engineering.


The Computer Engineering program in the department of electrical and computer engineering offers graduate programs of study which lead to the M.S. degree (thesis and non-thesis options) and the Ph.D. degree. Both the Rolla campus and the Engineering Education Center in St. Louis offer M.S. programs. A great variety of multidisciplinary programs and research areas are available. Most graduate programs in computer engineering normally include some specialization in one or more of the following:

  • Digital Systems Design topics include computer architecture, digital circuits, high performance systems, parallel processors, testing and VLSI design.
  • Electrical Engineering can be an emphasis area in computer engineering or a separate degree. See the section on electrical engineering for emphasis areas in electrical engineering.
  • Embedded Computer Systems topics include hardware/software co-design, microprocessor systems, real-time systems, and smart sensors.
  • Systems, Intelligence, and Software Engineering topics include computational intelligence, computer networks, dependability, fault tolerance, image processing, neural networks and system security/survivability.


It is the policy of the Missouri University of Science and Technology to provide full and equal employment opportunities to all persons without regard to race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, genetic information, disability or protected veteran status; to prohibit discrimination in recruitment, employment or conditions of employment, including salary and benefits related thereto; to promote employment opportunity and to take affirmative action in this regard.
