The Master of Engineering in Computer Science & Engineering (MEng CSE) degree program is specially tailored to individuals who plan to change careers and enter the CSE profession, international students seeking to establish U.S. credentials in CSE, or current CSE professionals who wish to advance their skills and education. A distinctive feature of the program is its individualization and combination of computer science and computer engineering education with pursuits in other fields. Work in the program culminates in a capstone project highlighting each student's ambitions, interests, and accomplishments in the program.
