Computer Engineering - M.S.

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

Why Choose Computer Engineering?

Today, computer engineers make up one of the highest-paying and most in-demand career fields in the world. Our graduate computer engineering program is designed for students who wish to capitalize on this growing industry. As a student, you will develop the skills required to design, develop, test and evaluate computer components, systems and networks. You will graduate empowered with the creative problem-solving skills to develop new directions in computer hardware, and ultimately generate advances in computer technology. 

Faculty & Research  

To thrive in this field, computer engineers need to know more than engineering principles and methods. It requires creativity and personality--qualities the professors at Manhattan will help you develop too. Unlike what you might find at a large research institution, the computer engineering faculty at Manhattan College have the time and resources to devote to each individual student, which is vital when it comes to helping you with research projects and eventually job placement.

There are numerous lab assistantship and graduate research positions available in this program, including:

NSF Graduate Research Fellowship: This fellowship recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. The fellowship includes a stipend to support international research and professional development.
