Board approves master's in computer engineering

(March 30, 2005)--The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has approved a master of science degree in computer engineering at The University of Texas at San Antonio.

The new program, scheduled to begin fall 2005, will provide students with graduate training in problem-solving and design of computer-based systems in both industrial and academic settings. Successful students will be prepared for leadership roles in computer hardware design, embedded systems and engineering software design and testing.

Computer engineering, a dynamic and rapidly growing field, has evolved from a concentration in electrical engineering to a distinct area of research and instruction.

"This master's degree program will include important industrial research opportunities for students and faculty at UTSA, train new scientists across the nation, and increase the economic potential of the San Antonio community and the South and Central Texas region," said Mehdi Shadaram, chair of the UTSA Department of Electrical Engineering. "The program also will complement the current research underway by engineering faculty in the areas of computer security and enhance our opportunities to receive additional federal funding."
