Master of Applied Science in Computer Engineering
This course-based graduate program prepares its graduates for further post-graduate study or for careers as computer engineers in sectors such as telecommunications, information technology, software development, and digital hardware design. The degree will provide participants with a balanced background in computer hardware and software and an in-depth knowledge of important applications areas, such as software development, hardware design, telecommunication systems, computer networks, and parallel computing.
Students will have the option to do an internship after they have completed the major course requirements of their program. Memorial University has dedicated staff to help students get their internship placements.
Selected highly-qualified students will receive an Entrance Scholarship. The top two ranked students after the first two semesters will be awarded In-Program Scholarships. No need to apply to either scholarship.
The normal duration of this program is approximately 16 months, four semesters. Students whose undergraduate study was not instructed in English will be required to attend a 8-week English training from July to August, prior to taking advanced courses and project work. As such, the program duration for these students will be 18 months, five semesters.
