The Computer and Electronics Engineering Department (CEEN) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln offers graduate programs in Telecommunications and Computer Engineering leading to master's and doctoral degrees. The graduate program prepares students for professional and research careers in industry and academia through providing strong breadth of knowledge and depth of expertise in telecommunications engineering and computer engineering.
Graduate students have the opportunity to experience and contribute to innovative engineering research in areas of wireless communications, wireless sensor networks, multimedia processing, network security, optical communications, biomedical communications engineering, and other related research areas. Students are able to participate in interdisciplinary studies with other departments and programs at the University of Nebraska including the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
The CEEN Department has extensive state-of-the-art research and computing facilities for all areas of active research including access to the Holland Computing Center which has over 5,600 processors and is capable of a sustainable computation rate of more than 20 trillion floating point operations per second (20 TFlops).
The CEEN Department is a University of Nebraska-Lincoln program located in the Peter Kiewit Institute in Omaha. The Peter Kiewit Institute was established to support high quality research by faculty and students coupled with business and economic development initiatives to generate unity-of-effort among academic, industry and local, state and federal government organizations in solving local, regional and national problems.
Courses and MoreStudents in Computer and Electronics Engineering are most likely to take courses in:
- Computing and Electronic Engineering (CEEN)
- Computer Science and Engineering (CSCE)
- Electrical Engineering (ELEC)
Students will work with an advisor to create a Program of Studies or Memorandum of Courses during the first half of their coursework.
