BS in Computer Engineering

The Computer Engineering program integrates both electronics engineering and computer science in the development of computer systems. Computer Engineers are involved in many hardware and software aspects of computing including design of microcontrollers, computers, and circuit design. These engineers focus not just on how computers work but on how to integrate them into larger systems.

Students learn the fundamentals of circuits, systems, and software associated with the design of programmable systems as used for general purpose computing, communications, control, or signal processing. Because of their broad skills in both hardware and software, students in computer engineering are in high demand for employment after graduation. Computer engineering students are also positioned to pursue graduate programs in either computer science or electronics engineering.

Program Mission

The mission of the Computer Engineering program is to produce graduates who have the necessary theoretical background and the technical know-how and skills to create successful innovations and to solve problems in the field and to understand the social and environmental issues that may be involved. Graduates will have a thorough foundation in the basic principles of electrical engineering and information technology and a broad introduction to electronics, the design of digital computer systems, software development, data communications, and networking. Students will be prepared for employment in diverse areas of computer engineering or for further study in a graduate program.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

A few years after earning their degree, our graduates will be:

  1. Successful professionals in the theoretical and practical areas of Computer Engineering
  2. Ethical and responsible engineers with sufficient awareness of the impact of engineering solutions in various contexts
  3. Life-long learners equipped with the skills required for professional practice including functioning in teams and communicating effectively

Program Learning Outcomes

Graduates of the program will have the ability to:

  1. identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
