Program overview

The master of science degree in computer engineering provides students with a high level of specialized knowledge in computer engineering, strengthening their ability to successfully formulate solutions to current technical problems, and offers a significant independent learning experience in preparation for further graduate study or for continuing professional development at the leading edge of the discipline. The program accommodates applicants with undergraduate degrees in computer engineering or related programs such as electrical engineering or computer science. (Some additional bridge courses may be required for applicants from undergraduate degrees outside of computer engineering).

Plan of study

The degree requires 30 semester credit hours and includes Analytical Topics in Computer Engineering (CMPE-610), two core courses, four graduate electives, two semesters of graduate seminar, and the option of completing either a thesis research or a graduate project. The core courses and graduate electives provide breadth and depth of knowledge. The Computer Engineering Graduate Seminar (CMPE-795) provides students with exposure to a variety of topics presented by researchers from within RIT, industry, and other universities, and guides students to choose either a thesis or project as their culminating experience. The Project/Thesis Initiation Seminar (CMPE-796) guides students to complete their thesis proposal or project execution plan with their faculty adviser.

Students who pursue the thesis option complete nine semester credit hours of thesis research (CMPE-790) to conduct research with a faculty adviser to answer a fundamental science/engineering question that contributes to new knowledge in the field. Students are expected to formulate the problem under the faculty adviser's guidance and conduct extensive quantitative or qualitative analyses with sound methodology. Research findings should be repeatable and generalizable, with sufficient quality to make them publishable in technical conferences and/or journals. Students who pursue the project option take six semester credits of graduate electives directly related to their project deliverables and three semester credits of Graduate Project (CMPE-792) to professionally execute a project under the supervision of a faculty adviser. The project generally addresses an immediate and practical problem, a scholarly undertaking that can have tangible outcomes, where students are expected to give a presentation or demonstration of the final deliverables of the project.

Why pursue graduate studies in ECE?

  • The MS, ME and PhD programs in ECE offer opportunities for advanced course work as well as challenging research projects to prepare students for leadership roles in engineering careers with industry, government, research organizations, or educational institutions.
  • ECE graduate programs stress both theoretical and practical aspects of Electrical and Computer Engineering by combining the teaching and research expertise of the ECE faculty with additional research resources in the Hampton Roads area through department labs and university centers/institutes.
  • ECE faculty are very active in conducting cutting-edge research projects which provide both research experiences and financial support for qualified graduate students. Graduate teaching and research assistantships are awarded on a competitive basis and include a stipend along with full or partial tuition waiver.

Related Experiences

  • The ECE department has research laboratories focusing on Advanced Signal Processing in Engineering and Neuroscience; Applied Plasma Technology; Computer Vision; Cybersecurity, Communications and Networking; Medical Imaging, Diagnosis, and Analysis; and Systems research.
  • University centers with which ECE faculty work include the Applied Research Center, the Frank Reidy Center of Bioelectrics, the Laser and Plasma Engineering Institute, the Virginia Institute for Photovoltaics, and the Virginia Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation Center.
  • Additional research facilities in the Hampton Roads area with which ECE faculty collaborate include NASA Langley Research Center and Jefferson Lab.

Move up the hierarchy

Whether you are looking to move up the hierarchy in your engineering career, are interested in developing analytical skills through applied research, or both, Massey’s Master of Engineering Studies unique aspects will give you a step up.

Find out more about the Master of Engineering Studies parent structure.

The Master of Engineering Studies (Electronics and Computer Engineering) is a high-quality programme combining taught and research courses at a postgraduate level. It is a 120 credit qualification able to be completed in one year full-time. 

If you are already working, or your research experience is limited, this qualification will give you the learning you need to take your career to the next level or pursue more in-depth postgraduate research. 

This qualification will help you become an excellent electronic and computer engineer. You will be multi-disciplinary, have excellent practical skills and be able to design, develop and manage both software and hardware projects. You will be capable of working in a team environment to solve problems from the device level to networks, communication systems and embedded systems.

Hands-on practice as you learn

There is a strong emphasis on embedding computing & electronics technologies in every-day consumer products and the importance of the user interface.

Solve real-world problems

While you will gain a thorough knowledge of the fundamental principles of engineering, the Master of Engineering Studies emphasises the application of your engineering learnings to complex real-world industrial problems. Massey staff have strong relationships with industry and you can utilise these to find projects of relevance to you. 

Unique specialities

The degree will help you gain expertise in an area outside of the focus of your undergraduate qualification, or current employment, or help you progress your career in your area of interest.

Advanced problem-solving skills

An integral part of your learning will be the experience working in a team environment to solve problems at a variety of conceptual levels.

You’ll gain the ability to learn independently, analyse industry needs and propose and validate tangible technical solutions, identify when your knowledge of a problem is lacking, and be able access and use the information required.

Access to broad expertise and equipment

As an engineering student at Massey University, you gain access to engineering and advanced technology-related expertise as well as a huge range of equipment and knowledge such as 3D printers and world class mechanical and electronic workshops, state-of-the art microscopic and genomic facilities, horticulture and agriculture expertise, extensive farm networks and a broad range of science, health, business and humanities-related staff. This unique capacity will enable you to build machines and devices for testing hypotheses and develop products in a modern multidisciplinary engineering context.

Why postgraduate study?

Postgraduate study is hard work but hugely rewarding and empowering. The Master of Engineering Studies will push you to produce your best creative, strategic and theoretical ideas. The workload replicates the high-pressure environment of senior workplace roles. Our experts are there to guide but if you have come from undergraduate study, you will find that postgraduate study demands more in-depth and independent study.

Not just more of the same

Postgraduate study is not just ‘more of the same’ undergraduate study. It takes you to a new level in knowledge, expertise, and the critical analytic skills needed to define a problem and develop, test, and validate engineering solutions. In fact, the world engineering originates from Latin ingenium, meaning "cleverness."
