Computer engineering MS portfolio instructions

Creating a computer engineering portfolio

The computer engineering MS program requires that students submit a portfolio as their culminating experience instead of a comprehensive exam. In their last year of study, students need to follow the instructions provided and submit their completed portfolio by the deadlines listed in the guidelines document below.

Attend presentations and report on them

Students need to attend three seminars or defenses hosted by the School of Computing and Augmented Intelligence or the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering. They need to show proof of attendance and answer the prompts in the portfolio attendance form below.

Students are required to synthesize the information in the seminar with their education and demonstrate an understanding of how this applies to their personal and professional computer engineering goals.

First-year students are not required to attend seminars; however, attendance is encouraged. This prepares first-year students to answer the prompts in the attendance form below when they are getting ready to graduate. Attending these seminars is a great way to learn about research and potentially find a thesis advisor as well.

If students have questions about the portfolio process, they should contact their assigned academic advisors.
