SET transcends the traditional classroom framework by placing a greater emphasis on hands-on scientific research experience. Our graduates are accepted into medical and dental schools at 1.5 times the national rate.
The Master of Science in Computer Engineering program focuses on the fundamental design principles of digital computers. This degree prepares students for highly technical positions in fields such as computer networking, communications systems, integrated systems, fiber optics, microprocessors, robotics, software design, embedded systems, computer architectures, digital systems design and electronics.
St. Mary’s also offers a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering degree.
Computer engineers design and implement computer systems – both hardware and software. Computer engineering is a combination of electrical engineering (hardware) and computer science (software and systems), and computer engineers work on the entire computer system, from networks to embedded systems to software.
Student can select from either a thesis or project options, with specific requirements for each. Topics of concentration include computer architecture, parallel processing, microprocessors, computer networking, and software engineering.
This program offers a balanced curriculum in hardware and software, while allowing students to tailor their degree to focus in hardware, software or both.
The department also offers a unique five-year combined Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Computer Engineering. Undergraduate students begin graduate course work during their senior years and complete a master’s degree in one additional year.
