Career Opportunities

Graduates from the Master of Science program in computer engineering are able to apply new theories, methods and designs that can advance the field of computer engineering. More specifically, program graduates have the skills to advance the design, system integration, testing, evaluation and deployment of state-of-the-art hardware and software for systems that include computing, communications and networking (wired and wireless), control functions, sensing, signal processing, and actuation.

These skills can be applied in high-demand growth areas, such as autonomous systems and robotics; distributed, dependable and secure systems; as well as in embedded systems for media processing and communications.

Career examples include:

  • computer engineering professor
  • computer engineering researcher
  • computer hardware engineer
  • computer systems engineer
  • systems software engineer

Graduates may work under the direction of scientists and engineers who hold doctorates in high-tech lab settings, assisting in developing innovative products and systems that require strong foundational knowledge in the underlying sciences and the ability to synthesize and analyze engineering principles as they relate to the development of new computer engineering technology.
