Master of Science and PhD in Computer Engineering program at CASE is particularly deliberated for engineers aspiring to excel in knowledge of emerging trends and technological modernization. It encompasses areas that are in line with hi-tech industry requirements in the field. The program is targeted to equip technical managers with necessary knowledge to make them remain competitive in this technological area. The curriculum has been designed with the aim of providing breadth and depth of knowledge in key areas that evolve with society needs.

Areas of Specialization:

Degree Requirements:

Each student of Computer Engineering has to select one Area of Specialization (AOS) out of the two available options. The courses of the remaining AOS of the ECE Department (including non selected AOS of electrical engineering, computer engineering, information security, and software engineering) will then become areas for Additional Graduate Hours (AGH). Student opting for any AOS also has a recommended list of AGH courses specified. However, students can also choose other course too accordingly to their interest in consultation with the academic advisors. A student has to select one Minor area and complete the entire Minor course work requirement from that area.

A student planning for a PhD is required to take Mathematics as a minor.

MS Degree Requirements:
Credit Hour Requirement M.S. Hours
Area of Specialization (AOS): From One area of specialization of the respective degree program. 12
Additional Graduate Hours (AGH): Outside the area(s) of specialization and the minor area but within the department. 6
Minor hrs. 6
Thesis/Dissertation 6
Total Hours Required 30
Ph.D. Degree Requirements:
Credit Hour Requirement Ph.D. Hours PhD Hours Including MS
Area of Specialization (AOS): From the same degree program 6 21-24
Outside the area of specialization and minor area but within the department 3 12-9
Mathematics hrs. (Minor) 3 9
Electives 6 0
Thesis/Dissertation 30 30
Total Hours Required 48 78
