Computer Engineering (MS)

Electrical and Computer Engineering Department

Program Description

Computer engineering makes it possible for us to telecommute from home, check our e-mail on the go, and videoconference with clients from around the world. But laptops and information networks aren’t the only products computer engineers develop; they reconstruct genomes, design robots, and conceive software to make businesses more efficient.

At the Tandon School of Engineering, we want to place our students at the forefront of the telecommunications, networks, and microelectronics industries. The master's program in Computer Engineering gets you there. By teaching you the principles underlying the design and integration of computer components and systems, we make sure you have a base from which to launch improvements in the field.

Our collaborative relationships with industry and government agencies help you reach your potential, and you gain practical experience that adds to in-class explorations in a number of critical areas — everything from VLSI verification and testing to embedded systems design and computer architecture.

Many fields are open to our students, including information technology, computer design and engineering, operating systems and networks, computer architecture, and software applications, among others.


To apply for admission to any Tandon graduate program, please contact the Office of Graduate Admissions.


Admission to the MS program requires a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering, electrical engineering or computer science from an accredited institution. Students without such prior degrees must complete appropriate undergraduate courses to remove any deficiencies in preparation. Topics in which deficiencies must be removed include logic circuits design, state analysis and synthesis techniques, computer architecture, data structures and algorithms and C or C++ programming.
