Computer Engineering BS / Project Management MS

Major: Computer Engineering and Project Management
Degree Awarded: Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (BSCE) and Master of Science in Project Management (MSPROJ)
Calendar Type: Quarter
Total Credit Hours: 226.5
Co-op Options: Three Co-op (Five years)
Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) code: 14.0901
Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) code: 15-1132; 15-1133; 15-1143; 17-2031

About the Program

Although most of the students in the Project Management are mid-level working professionals, many College of Engineering students have completed at least 1 co-op experience. This will give them sufficient professional background to make meaningful contributions to the courses in our program. The BSCE students students will get to interact with project management professionals who are currently in industry which will serve them well in future co-ops and when they enter the workplace. 

Admission Requirements

Students must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2; be classified as a 3rd year (pre-junior) student and have completed at least completed at least 1 co-op experience or have at least one year of professional experience. We will also require students to submit an essay discussing the following:

  • Why they are pursuing a BS in Computer Engineering (BSCE) / MS in Project Management (MJPROJ)
  • How they feel having a BSCE/MSPROJ will set them apart from their peers in future co-ops/career choice

Writing-Intensive Course Requirements

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.

A "WI" next to a course in this catalog may indicate that this course can fulfill a writing-intensive requirement. For the most up-to-date list of writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Writing Intensive Course List at the University Writing Program. Students scheduling their courses can also conduct a search for courses with the attribute "WI" to bring up a list of all writing-intensive courses available that term.
