Why study Computer Engineering at Texas A&M?

Computer engineering at Texas A&M is an interdisciplinary program administered jointly by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. This interdisciplinary program approaches both computer hardware and software from an engineering perspective.

Programme Structure

As a student in computer engineering, you'll choose between two tracks, electrical engineering and computer science:

  • The electrical engineering track emphasizes digital very large scale integrated (VLSI) circuits and systems, microprocessor interfacing and systems design, and computer system architecture and design. It covers most of the core requirements of an electrical engineering degree, but emphasizes computing.
  • The computer science track focuses on computer networks, computer architecture, artificial intelligence, computer graphics, robotics, real-time computing, computer languages, microcomputers, VLSI, and large-scale hardware and software systems. It covers most requirements of a computer science degree, but prepares you for registration as a professional engineer.

Students in both tracks get a strong foundation in mathematics, physics and chemistry. They also take courses in electrical circuits, electronics, digital circuits, computer architecture ranging from microcomputers to mainframes, interfacing, microcomputer systems, programming languages, data structures, analysis of algorithms, operating systems, and software engineering.

The curriculum is designed to cover the engineering aspects of both hardware and software at a total computer systems perspective.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score:

    6

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

  • Minimum required score:

    550

    The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

  • Minimum required score:

    80

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

Academic Requirements

  • On-line Application. A completed Apply Texas Application.
  • Application Fee. A nonrefundable $90 application fee. The application fee may be paid by check, money order or approved credit card. If you wish to submit your application fee by check or money order please use the alternate payment form.
  • Official Transcripts and Records. Official transcripts are required from each post-secondary university or college attended. An official statement of the award of the degree or diploma is required for each degree completed. College work from one institution posted on the transcript of another institution will not be accepted.
  • Official Test Scores. Required test scores (GRE or GMAT) should be sent directly from the Educational Testing Service to Texas A&M University and be taken within five years.
