About the Program

Computer science is a broad field encompassing diverse subject areas such as computer system, distributed computing, computer networks, communications and signal processing. Knowledge of mathematics and natural sciences is applied to the theory, design, and implementation of devices and systems for the benefit of society. Computer engineers are trained in various fields of computer science and engineering. They engage in the design and analysis of digital computers and networks, including software and hardware. Computer design includes covers computer architecture, computer graphics, design automation, system software, data structures and algorithms, distributed computing, and computer networks. Computer engineering courses include topics such as programming in advanced level languages such as C++ and Java; use of software packages for analysis and design; design of system software such as operating systems; design of hardware/software interfaces and embedded systems; and application of computers in solving engineering problems. Applicants of this program need a bachelor's degree in computer science, computer programming, electrical engineering or another science or engineering major with prerequisite computer science courses.

Education Opportunities

Master of Science in Computer Engineering program offers both thesis and non-thesis options. The thesis program consists of seven courses, seminar and thesis. Two of the seven courses are compulsory and the remaining five courses are graduate-level elective courses in various areas. The non-thesis program is designed for those who are not willing to do thesis work but would like to further their educational and professional goals. The non-thesis program consists of ten courses and a graduation project. Two of the ten courses are compulsory and the remaining eight courses are graduate-level elective courses. Computer Engineering Master’s Program offers courses on computer networks, artificial intelligence, signal processing, computer architecture, software engineering, programming languages, database and its applications, data mining and natural language processing. Additionally, students can get courses from other engineering fields. Our program is a member of Oracle Academy and Microsoft Imagine Academy.

The goal of this module is to introduce the students to advanced network programming concepts. They will study issues such as multitasking, multi-threading, processes, inter-process communications and network communications. Client-server communications for long term (e.g. large file transfer, multimedia streaming) and short term sessions (e.g. Web traffic) will be presented. P2P, RMI, applet-servlet, e-mail and multimedia mail will be introduced. The course will also address issues related to the programming of network equipment, including router architecture, network signaling, firewall and deep packet probes, network processors, network support for unicast, multicast and broadcast, and the use of techniques for dynamically changing router code, such as mobile agents and active networks

This course will present an introduction to the principles of operation, design, testing, and implementation of the unimodal and multimodal biometric systems. Major and emerging biometric technologies (fingerprint, face, hand, iris, hand geometry, palmprint, keystroke, handwriting, signature, gait, voice etc.) performance and issues related to the security and privacy aspects of these systems will be addressed. Students will be introduced to a variety of methods used for processing data from various biometrics (especially signature biometric modality) and to statistical methods employed to achieve acceptable recognition performance rates (i.e. false accept rate, false reject rate, equal error rate and correct classification rates).
