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 areas:
- 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.
Delivery of this program is 100% online: no campus visits are required. Courses are semester-based. Students typically take one or two classes each semester and finish in two to three years.
