Computer Science

Computer Science IconThe UTPA Department of Computer Science provides a wide range of opportunities for graduate level study, offering degrees in both computer science and information technology. Faculty members conduct research on topics as diverse as bioinformatics, wireless networks, image processing, and computer algorithms. There is ample opportunity for students to become involved in research projects by pursuing the Department’s Master’s of Science in Computer Science (MS-CS) and its thesis option. The MS-CS degree’s project option provides students more application-oriented experience.

Application to both the University and Department is through a single online application. Students with a bachelor's degree in any field may enter either program.

Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering IconThe Department of Electrical Engineering offers a graduate program leading to a Master of Science in engineering degree. The program has a thesis option, and a non-thesis option. Coursework is offered in areas that include computer engineering, systems and controls, communications, digital systems, and electronics.

Applicants to the master’s program in electrical engineering must meet the University requirements for admission to graduate. Prospective graduate students whose bachelor’s degree is in a field other than electrical engineering are required to take leveling courses, prescribed by the graduate program director, before they can be considered for admission to the electrical engineering graduate program.

Information Technology Program

Information Technology IconThe Master of Science in Information Technology (MS-IT) Program, within the department of computer science, provides students a strong foundation for study of advanced topics in information technology and a knowledge of state-of-the-art applications in the field. Students come to the program with a wide range of backgrounds, and the first semester of study supplies the competencies for further, more specialized courses. In general, students with degrees in other disciplines or who have been away from academic study for an extended period can begin graduate studies in selected courses during their first semester of enrollment. Many students are practicing professionals who seek to extend and refine their skills in information technology, and most courses are offered in the evening.
