Careers

What Can I Do with a Master of Engineering in Computer Science?

Computer scientists use algorithms and data structures to harness the incredible processing power of modern computers towards constructive ends. They write programs, the basic building blocks that form the computer world. They also create the databases, the "office" software, and the networking protocols at the core of today computing demands in business, science, and engineering. If this sounds like the career for you, we can help.

Our program is intended to meet your educational needs as a practicing engineer. You will have the opportunity to enhance and/or develop the skills, knowledge, and understanding that are critical to today practicing engineers. Courses are offered through a variety of forms, including distance-delivery methods and flexible formats.

Note: If you are interested in this advanced degree, you must apply and be accepted to the Master of Engineering program in addition to being admitted to the university.

With further education, one of these paths is possible:
  • Researcher
  • Database analyst
  • Engineering consultant
  • Computer programmer

Student Learning Outcomes

The Master of Engineering is a non-thesis professional degree, based primarily on course work and/or on an engineering project designed with the guidance of a faculty advisor to address a need or problem specific to their engineering field of study (Civil, Environmental, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering).  This degree program is designed to provide a broad, practice-based education.

Students will:

Demonstrate the ability to apply graduate level critical thinking skills to formulate and solve advanced civil (electrical/environmental/mechanical) engineering problems.

Demonstrate the ability to, independently and creatively, design, plan, and conduct complex civil (electrical/environmental/mechanical) engineering projects;Demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively the results of a comprehensive research project through oral presentations and publications.
