MS - Computer Engineering
Fairleigh Dickinson University's new Master of Science in Computer Engineering is designed to train and educate students to work as computer engineers who understand the design tradeoff and the interdependency between hardware and software in computers, computer-based systems, computer communications and computer networks. Computer-based systems are widely used in data acquisition, signal processing and conditioning, instrumentation, communications, control, automation and manufacturing. The curriculum provides students with design skills, theoretical concepts and a solid foundation in both hardware and software design in an integrated manner, as well as competency in advanced computer technology. The program emphasizes practical applications of computer engineering.
An FDU education means more than just classroom studies. Students are encouraged to work with faculty on research through independent studies or thesis.
Possible research areas for computer engineering students are:
* Digital System and Microprocessor Design
* Computer Networks and Communications
* Neural Networks, Fuzzy Logic and Artificial Intelligence
* Image Compression and Processing
* Adaptive Noise Cancellation and Channel and Echo Equalization
* Wireless Communications and Smart Antennas
* Database Systems
* Software Engineering
* Real-Time Systems
* Fault Tolerant Computing
Fairleigh Dickinson University is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
* A Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering, computer engineering or computer science from an accredited university. This should include courses or equivalent experience in the following areas: introductory computer programming, logic circuits, digital interfacing circuits and data structures. These courses can be taken at Fairleigh Dickinson University but will not count toward the 33-credit master's degree requirement. Students with a Bachelor of Science degree in technology or other areas of science and engineering may be admitted if they complete undergraduate prerequisites as determined by an adviser of the school.
* Submission of an official score report for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test taken within the last five years. The GRE requirement is waived for applicants who have completed a master’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university in United States.
* Three letters of recommendation.
