BS/MS in Computer Engineering Technology
The computer engineering technology major, in conjunction with the department of computer science in the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences, offers an accelerated dual degree option that combines the bachelor’s degree in computer engineering technology and a master’s degree in computer science in a cohesive, five-year curriculum.
Applications to this program are accepted from matriculated undergraduate computer engineering technology students who have completed all the courses in the first 3 semesters of the baccalaureate program and have maintained a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.4 out of 4.0.
