Computer Engineering Track

Program Description

This degree track leads to a Master of Science degree in Computer Engineering at UTSA. It is designed to offer the students the opportunity to prepare for leadership roles in careers with industry, government, or educational institutions. The students enrolled in the M.S. Degree program in Computer Engineering will have two different options to obtain their degree. They are: (1) Thesis option and (2) Non-thesis option. A thesis option is offered for students who want the opportunity to obtain expertise in research and who may be interested in pursuing the doctoral degree in computer engineering or electrical engineering. A non-thesis option is offered for students who want a practical industrial applications-oriented degree. Ours graduate programs stress both theoretical and practical aspects of Electrical and Computer Engineering by combining the teaching and research expertise of the University community with the resources of other San Antonio research institutions. The Graduate Faculty in Electrical and Computer Engineering are active in conducting cutting-edge research projects which provide both research experiences and financial supports for our graduate students.
