Computer Engineering

The mission of the computer engineering program, consistent with the Missouri S&T campus mission statements, is the education of students to fully prepare them to provide leadership in the recognition and solution of society’s problems in the area of computer engineering.

The computer engineering program in the department of electrical and computer engineering offers graduate programs of study which lead to the M.S. degree (thesis and non-thesis options) and the Ph.D. degree. Both the Rolla campus and Missouri S&T Global -  St. Louis offer M.S. programs. A great variety of multidisciplinary programs and research areas are available. Most graduate programs in computer engineering normally include some specialization in one or more of the following:

  • Digital Systems Design topics include computer architecture, digital circuits, high performance systems, parallel processors, testing and VLSI design.
  • Electrical Engineering can be an emphasis area in computer engineering or a separate degree. See the section on electrical engineering for emphasis areas in electrical engineering.
  • Embedded Computer Systems topics include hardware/software co-design, microprocessor systems, real-time systems, and smart sensors.
  • Systems, Intelligence, and Software Engineering topics include computational intelligence, computer networks, dependability, fault tolerance, image processing, neural networks and system security/survivability.

Departmental Requirements

The nominal GPA requirement for admission to the M.S. degree program in this department is an undergraduate GPA of 3.3 on a 4.0 GPA system. In evaluating the academic performance from universities that may use other grading systems, the department may rely upon statistical data gathered in analyzing academic outcomes for recent graduate students to the extent that such statistical data is available. The department will not offer graduate admissions to students who do not have the equivalent of a four year baccalaureate degree in engineering. As an example, we cannot accept students who have only a diploma or engineering technology degree.

In addition to campus requirements that the sum of GRE-V and GRE-Q be 1100 and the GRE-WR score be a minimum of 3.5, the ECE department requires ETS reported GRE scores and recommends the following:

ETS scoring prior to November 2011:  Q+V=1180, Q 760, V=420

ETS scoring after November 2011:  Q+V=308, Q 160, V=148, A/WR 4.0

For international students who are required to provide TOEFL scores, the ECE department has no preference as to the computer based TOEFL (CBT), internet based TOEFL (iBT), or paper based TOEFL (PBT). Minimum recommended scores set by the department are 237 CBT, 92 iBT, and 580 PBT. Where TOEFL is not available, IELTS score of 6.5 is recommended. 

Students applying for graduate studies in this department on the basis of degrees in closely related fields may have additional conditions placed on their admission. These conditions are generally imposed to make sure that students lacking a traditional Computer Engineering degree will have sufficient background to ensure a reasonable chance for academic success.

Students seeking admission to the Ph.D. program should meet or exceed all of the above recommendations and should have a graduate GPA of 3.5 or better. All Ph.D. applicants must provide at least three letters of recommendation. Exceptional applicants may apply directly to the Ph.D. program after completing the baccalaureate degree.

Program Requirements

Additional departmental requirements beyond those stated in the section on Admission and Program Procedures are as follows. Thesis option M.S. programs of study require a minimum of 21 credit hours of course work exclusive of credit hours earned for thesis research (courses numbered 5099). A limited number of credit hours for 3000 level courses may be counted towards the fulfillment of an M.S. program of study, provided that the courses are taken outside of the electrical and computer engineering department and that the courses are pre-requisites for at least one 5000 or 6000 level course also included in the program of study. The doctoral program of study, for the Ph.D. degree or the D.E. degree, should include 90 credit hours beyond the B.S. degree or 60 credit hours beyond the M.S. degree. An M.S. or doctoral student’s advisory committee may impose additional requirements or restrictions as it sees fit.

Ph.D. Language Requirement

As a computer engineering Ph.D. student, you are not required to satisfy a language requirement. However, you may have language requirements included in your plan of study if your advisory committee feels that this inclusion would be useful or necessary for your research.

Research

Significant research, suitable for publication, is expected for students pursuing the thesis option M.S. or a doctoral degree. The student should work closely with their major advisor and their advisory committee to determine when these expectations are met. The length of research time and/or the number credit hours earned for thesis research will not automatically satisfy this requirement.

Graduate Certificate Programs

(Also offered in the systems engineering or computer science disciplines)

There are three graduate certificate programs that utilize computer engineering graduate level courses to develop the skills of practicing engineers, including network centric systems, information assurance and security officer essentials, and computational intelligence. Details for these programs can be obtained from http://dce.mst.edu/credit/certificates/. The four courses taken to fulfill the requirements of any of the graduate certificate programs can, under certain circumstances, be counted towards an M.S. degree. However, any prerequisite or remedial courses taken to provide background for one or more of the four graduate certificate program courses cannot be counted towards an M.S. degree.

In order for a required graduate certificate course in network centric systems to count for graduate credit the graduate certificate program must have been successfully completed, as described in the Admission and Program Procedures section, and the applicant must apply for and be accepted into the graduate program (computer engineering, computer science, or systems engineering) specified at the time the applicant was accepted into the specific graduate certificate program.

These programs are designed to appeal to working professionals.
