Master of Science in 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:
Career Opportunities: Computer engineering is one of the newest and most popular engineering fields. It evolved from electrical engineering into a separate discipline because of the enormous demand for engineers with specialized knowledge in computer technology. The U.S. Department of Labor projects that computer engineering will continue to experience rapid occupational growth.
