Computer Engineering Graduate Program
The field of Computer Engineering incorporates both Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Computer engineers design, program, produce, operate, and maintain computer and digital systems. They generally apply the theories and principles of science and mathematics to the design of hardware, software, networks, and processes to solve technical problems.
Research Areas of Focus
The faculty of both the Department of Computer Science and the Charles E. Brown Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering welcome Computer Engineering students who combine interest in hardware and software. Students have the freedom to focus on a traditional research area or to work with faculty in both departments to develop apersonalized area of research interest. As more faculty research crosses disciplines, students are finding even more opportunities to work with faculty in other departments as well.
Areas of interest include but are not limited to:
Computer Architecture and Systems
Computer and Information Security
Data Science, Data Mining, and Machine Learning
Dependable, Resilient and Reconfigurable Computing
Embedded Systems, Wireless Sensor Networks
High Performance Computing
Internet of Things and Physical Systems
Machine Vision and Image Processing
Mobile, Distributed and Cloud Computing
Networks and Internet
Smart Energy and Power Management
Smart and Connected Health Systems
VLSI; System-on-chip; low-power design
