Graduate study in Computer Engineering at UT Dallas prepares students for leadership roles in research, development and design positions that require the use of skillful and imaginative solutions to engineering problems.
The M.S. degree program has been carefully designed for students to gain breadth of knowledge, and it is flexible enough for students to specialize in the area of their choice. Students who have earned a B.S. degree may apply to the M.S. degree program.
The Ph.D. program is available for highly qualified students who are interested in pursuing a Ph.D. immediately after completing a B.S. degree. Students who have earned an M.S. degree may apply to the Ph.D. program.
Upon enrollment in the CE program, students craft their educational program with the help of an academic advisor. All applicants are considered for financial aid. No special form is required. M.S. students who have been offered teaching assistantships are expected to pursue the thesis option. Students can also work as research assistants with academic/research advisors. All full-time Ph.D. students and project-option master’s students engage in research under faculty guidance.
The Computer Engineering program at UT Dallas combines broad areas of electrical engineering and computer science. The program deals with the sensing, processing, and transmission of information, using principles centered on system-level design, computer architecture and computer applications. Computer engineering concerns the design, construction, implementation and maintenance of software and hardware components of modern computing systems and computer-controlled equipment. The Computer Engineering Program prepares students for successful and rewarding careers that deal with computer systems from design through implementation.
The Fast Track program is designed to accelerate a student’s education so that both BS and MS degrees can be earned in approximately five years of full-time study. The Fast Track program in Computer Engineering enables exceptionally gifted undergraduate students in their senior year to include approved master’s level courses as part of an undergraduate degree plan. When Fast Track students graduate with a bachelor’s degree, they are automatically admitted to graduate school at UT Dallas without need to take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE).
