Computer Engineering - M.S.

Computer engineers apply engineering concepts to creatively design, develop and implement hardware and software systems.

Why Choose Computer Engineering?

This badge signifies our computer engineering masters program is a stem-designated program.

Today, computer engineers make up one of the highest-paying and most in-demand career fields in the world.

According to The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of jobs for software developers, quality assurance analysts and testers is set to increase 22% by 2030. In New York City, the growth is clear – jobs are continuing to increase in telecommunications, computing devices, cloud computing and medicine. 

The College’s 30-credit computer engineering program is designed for students looking to join this growing industry.
