Engineering and Computing Graduate Programs
The College of Engineering and Computing offers a wide variety of graduate programs. Graduate certificates provide advanced study comprising four or more graduate-level courses. Master’s degrees delve deeper, generally take from one to two years, with both thesis research and non-thesis options available. The Ph.D., the highest engineering and computing degree one can obtain, prepares graduates for positions of research leadership in academia or in many industrial and government research positions. All our graduate programs may be started while still pursuing an undergraduate degree through the Accelerated Bachelor’s/Graduate program.
Areas of Study
You may select a graduate program to deepen the knowledge and skills you developed during your undergraduate study. Or, you may choose a graduate program to develop expertise in a different area. In either case, a graduate degree in engineering and computing can help you stand out from the pack and be considered for the most competitive positions.
