The Master of Science (MS) in Computer Engineering prepares students for the professional practice of computer engineering, in a thesis or non-thesis program.
Our outstanding facilities and laboratories support the research and academic efforts of our students, including the Circuits and Logic Design Lab, the Communications Systems Lab, the Digital Signal Processing Lab, the Electronics, Integrated Circuits and Systems Lab, the Graphic Simulation Lab, the High-Speed Electronics Lab, the Image Understanding Lab, and the System Dynamics Lab.
New students must satisfy all university admission requirements as well as the specific program requirements. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission into the program.
FIU and the College of Engineering and Computing offer a variety of fellowships, assistantships, and scholarships to qualified domestic and international students. The amounts of these awards vary depending on the type of award, but they may provide full tuition and a monthly stipend.
You can choose a thesis or non-thesis option. If you want the non-thesis option, you must petition to be exempt from the requirement. You will then need to pass a comprehensive final exam given by a faculty committee. This general ability exam will be held at the end of your final semester. If you don’t pass the exam, you can take it again the next semester or when you complete additional coursework from the examining committee.
The Thesis Master’s program consists of 24 semester credit hours of course work, a minimum of six credit hours of Master’s Thesis and a final oral examination that includes an oral defense.
