The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) offers a variety of graduate education opportunities.  We have a vibrant and diverse population of approximately 800 students in our MS and PhD programs in computer science and computer engineering.  Applications for admission to the PhD and MS degree programs are considered annually for Fall Quarter admission only. The application deadline is normally in December.

Current CSE undergraduates who have a distinguished academic record can apply to the Five-year BS/MS degree program.

Graduate students receive financial assistance in the form of fellowships, research assistantships, or teaching assistantships.

Our Master of Advance Studies (MAS) programs for engineering professionals focus on emerging interdisciplinary fields critical to industry's competitive future. MAS programs, offered jointly with other UCSD departments, include Architecture-Based Enterprise Systems Engineering, Wireless Embedded Systems, and Data Science Engineering.
