MissionComputer Engineering is the application of technology in the synthesis of systems for control, computation and communication. This program focuses on the design, analysis, and application of computers and on their applications as components of systems.
The School of Information Technology and Engineering Sciences offers the Master of Science in Computer Engineering to prepare graduates for careers in telecommunications, industry, government, education, networking and software development. Focusing on principles and concepts underlying the design and integration of hardware and software components and systems, the Master of Science in Computer Engineering degree gives the graduates the tools to become competitive professionals, conﬁdent in electronically controlled systems and devices.
Our professors all have extensive experience in engineering and also excel in the business world. Students benefit from guidance built on real-world expertise.
AU’s curriculum encourages students to work with their peers from other academic backgrounds in order to learn dynamic project creation skills. Students from Engineering, Business, and IT programs work together to solve complex industry problems.
All engineering students work on projects throughout their classes. Hands-on practice is modeled on real-world working environments.
Students create, mold, and improve their projects throughout each semester. By graduation, participants will have a series of projects to show to future employers.
ObjectiveGraduates who choose to pursue a career in telecommunications, industry, government, education, networking, and software development will become successful engineers, scientists, or educators who demonstrate strong leadership, technical, and team skills. They will also be committed to continuing professional development.

- Submit a resume indicating education and complete work history.
- Provide one letter of recommendation.
- Hold a bachelor's degree or its equivalent conferred by a verified institution of postsecondary education.
- Send transcripts from previous educational pursuits.
Acceptable postsecondary institutions of education include:
A) Institutions accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, or
B) Institutions recognized by the Department/Ministry of Education of the country where the institution is in operation.
An undergraduate degree in business is not a requirement; qualified students from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The admission decision is based on a combination of a student’s undergraduate academic performance, relevant professional experience, and letters of recommendation.
Applicants must have completed a minimum of 120 credit-hours at the undergraduate level, including at least 30 credit-hours of general education. They must have either earned a bachelor's degree (or its equivalent) or completed over three years of full-time relevant work experience.
Atlantis University's master's degree programs are taught in English and Spanish. English proficiency is required if a student’s primary language is not English; this can be established by passing the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). A minimum TOEFL score of 500 must be achieved on the written format or 173 on the computerized version. TOEFL scores will be sent from ETS/TOEFL to the campus at the request of the student. Fees for having test scores sent to the campus by the TOEFL testing office range from $17 to $29 and are paid for by the student. The institution will assist students in expediting this process. AU maintains a list of Prometric centers/testing sites where the TOEFL is administered in the area.
