Computer Engineering – Master’s

Computer Engineering

Your 100%-online master’s in computer engineering from Iowa State University gives you expertise in the design and development of computer systems and networks. Your study combines electrical engineering and computer science skills to solve problems at the hardware and software interface.


The work you can do with a master’s in computer engineering is elemental to many of the technologies we take for granted every day. Without your skills, a web application may not do what it’s supposed to do when you touch the screen of an iPad. Without your expertise, the software that runs a car’s anti-lock braking system may not work appropriately with the car’s other systems. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECpE) offers a 100%-online graduate program in computer engineering so working professionals who are seeking to advance their careers can immerse themselves in a single course per semester and not feel overwhelmed with their existing professional and family obligations.
