At a Glance
The first half of the program provides a firm foundation in mathematics, natural science, basic engineering analysis and design, and humanities. Students will have a heavy focus on C++ programming language, data structures, computer-aided design and simulation, and electric and digital circuit analysis. Laboratories are incorporated into the curriculum to provide hands-on training with computers and software design.
Students apply their knowledge to various projects during the second half of the program. This includes designing and inventing hardware and software to meet customized specifications. During this time, students will not only work with teams of students but also one-on-one with highly qualified professors.
After completing the program, graduates can begin their careers or pursue graduate school. Computer engineering offers higher starting salaries than other engineering fields. Graduates may find career opportunities in cybersecurity, manufacturing, artificial intelligence, embedded systems, consulting, and the biomedical field.
The Computer Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, Inc.
