Washington University, St. Louis Engineering

MS in Computer Engineering

Degree Requirements

  1. 30 units of graduate credit (all of which must be taken for a grade) 
  2. 18 of the 30 units must be departmental courses at the 500-level or above from the designated graduate level Computer Engineering courses below

Please Note

  1. Students must take 9 units per semester to qualify for full-time status
  2. 6 units maximum can be transferred from another university
  3. Up to 12 units may be taken from outside of the department. Such approval shall be contingent on the credits being for suitably technical graduate level content. To count more than 6 credits from outside the CSE Department, an appropriate justification for the additional increment shall be provided by the advisor and student, and departmental approval shall be evaluated with increasing stringency for each additional increment.
  4. Any course taken outside the department requires departmental approval
  5. None of the 30 units may be taken as independent study (i.e., CSE 400 or CS 500)
  6. Up to 12 units of 400-level courses (with a grade of C- or better) can count for graduate credit; however, courses with an "N" designation do not count towards master's degrees in Computer Science and Engineering.
  7. As per Engineering School guidelines, students must maintain a GPA of at least 2.70.
