http://www.engineering.pitt.edu/ComputerEngineering/GraduateProgram/

The Computer Engineering Program graduate degrees are offered jointly with the Department of Computer Science. Students in the program come from both departments. For more information on the program see http://engineering.pitt.edu/ComputerEngineering/GraduateProgram/.

It is not the intention that students will be admitted to the program as terminal MS students. Instead, this degree is designed as a “milepost” in the program of study for a student pursuing a PhD.

This degree requires at least 30 credits, and includes eight courses or project courses, and six thesis credits. These fall into the following categories:

Requirements


Four core courses required (12 credits minimum)-Each student must complete at least one course chosen from each of the following three areas, and one additional course from any one of these areas.

Additional Requirements


Four courses (12 credits minimum) must be chosen from the list of CoE graduate courses, or from pre-approved CS or ECE courses. One of these four courses may also be a research project course (2998).

Master’s Thesis (6 credits): Each student must write and defend a master’s thesis. The thesis should be an in-depth investigation of a research topic in computer engineering. This requirement also includes the submission of a paper to a refereed conference or journal.
