If you are interested in doing Master's thesis with me, please write me an email to ricardo.rodriguezjorge.mx@ieee.org or you can visit me in my office.
The Institute of Engineering and Technology of the UACJ offers Master's degrees, which are part of the consolidated programs of the National Graduate Register of CONACYT and therefore have maintenance grants awarded by that body.
It is important to consider that our programs have a research focus in accordance with the mission of the UACJ. Consult the page of the institute with information about the entrance to the Masters.
The Masters offered are:
·Master's Degree in Applied Computing (MCA). Consult the Department's page with information about the guide for candidates and students of the Master in Applied Computing and the curricular map of the Master to know more about the process of obtaining the Master in MCA in the IEC.
The area of ​​signal processing, control and neural networks belongs to the research group “Mechatronics” and has several active projects. To work successfully in signal processing, control and artificial neural networks requires very good bases in programming, ability to write well in English and Spanish, ability to read well in English and Spanish, good mathematical foundation and a good attitude to efficiently develop teamwork and independently. Consult the Publications and Research Projects sections of Dr. Rodriguez Jorge to obtain more detailed information about the current projects. If you are interested in learning more about the projects or obtaining a graduate degree working in this area, please write an email to Dr. Ricardo Rodríguez Jorge or visit our facilities in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua.
In case of entering as a thesis student, in the research activities you will perform you will use the following operating systems, software and programming languages:

       ° Linux

       ° Python

       ° C/C++

       ° LaTeX

An adequate way to find out if a Master's degree with a focus on research is for you, is doing your internships or professional residencies in our group. For more information about this aspect consult my personal page www.rodriguezricardo.net.
For information on calendar procedures, admission procedures and other aspects related to postgraduate studies at the UACJ see the page of the Institute of Engineering and Technology.
Thanks for your interest.
