Master of Science and PhD in Computer Engineering program at SS-CASE-IT 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.
Currently, the following areas of specializations are being offered in Computer Engineering:
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 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.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is offering MS in Computer Engineering in the following research areas:
Each MS student has to select one area of specialization within the chosen degree program. In general, a student has to complete a minimum of 30 credit hours’ worth of courses (for non-thesis) and 24 credit hours’ worth of courses and 6 credit hours of thesis work (for thesis option). A student has to attain a minimum CGPA of 2.5 to earn the degree. Minimum duration of MS program is 1.5 years or 3 regular semesters or a maximum of 3.5 years with a maximum of 6 months extension.
