MS in E&TIM and Integrated Study in Computer Science

We are pleased to offer, with the School of Computer Science, a four-semester program that provides graduates with a foundation in current and emerging computation that will enable them to be a technological innovation leader. The Masters of Science in Engineering & Technology Innovation Management in ETIM and Integrated Study in Computer Science is a highly competitive masters program for engineers with a background in programming and computation.

In an increasingly digital marketplace, emerging technologies like machine learning and AI are disrupting the business models of major corporations. Meeting the innovation needs of these companies requires special skills that include technical expertise integrated with emerging computer science and leadership skills. This ETIM program positions graduates to lead and support the transformation of these organizations.

Program Overview

The MS in CEE and Intergrated Study in CS is a four-semester program where you will complete a minimum of 144 units - a minimum of 60 units from SCS courses. 

While you are required to successfully complete 96 units to earn your masters degree, there is not a prescribed set of core courses you are required to complete. As a student in this program, you will work with your ETIM academic advisor to develop a ETIM course schedule that will be tailored to your academic and career goals.

You will be required to carry 36 units per semester with no more than 1 SCS course in your first and second semesters. In your third semester, you may take no more than two SCS courses and complete your program in semester four with a minimum of one SCS course. You will need to maintain a 3.0 GPA to receive your degree.

Summer semesters are not considered part of the required semester and you cannot transfer into this program once you have already enrolled in one of ETIM's MS programs. 

If you have additional questions about this intergrated MS program, please contact us.

  • 15-513, Introduction to Computer Systems (12 units)
  • 17-514, Principles of Software Construction: Objects, Design, and Concurrency (12 units)
  • The remaining SCS courses, taken during semester three and four will be electives
