Overview: The field of computer engineering gives students a broad based foundation in the field of computer engineering. Students are prepared to design, develop and manage processes, systems and components related to computer hardware and software. Students graduate from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering with a high level of technical proficiency and valuable hands-on experience. Graduates typically work in the following types of positions: Sofware Engineers, Systems Engineers, Design Engineers, Product Designers, Project Engineers, Development Engineers, Test Engineers, and Engineering Team Leaders. The MSECE degree is awarded to students who satisfy the requirements of the ECE program and any one of the following conditions: An undergraduate degree in CmpE, ECE, or EE from an ABET 2 accredited institution. An undergraduate degree in Computer Science, if the students course work includes junior or senior level courses in a) operating systems, b) compiling, and c) computer architecture. Prerequisite material for these courses is implicitly required. Partial satisfaction of this coursework, augmented by Purdue courses, can also be used to satisfy this requirement. Any other undergraduate degree, plus satisfaction of a speciﬁed set of ECE undergraduate requirements.
