Computer Engineering Major

The stand-alone Computer Engineering major is being phased out. No new students will be enrolled after the 2016-2017 academic year.

Computer Engineering is now an option within the BS in Electrical Engineering program accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. The program provides experiential learning, theory and design activity to produce high-demand engineers able to do both hardware and software. Students obtain a background in the next generation of computer technologies. They learn computer design, computer science, electrical engineering, signal processing, biomedical engineering, physics, mathematics, and the liberal arts.

Computer engineering students obtain depth in the domains of computer-based systems that impact areas of biomedical engineering, and mathematics. Close interactions with industry results in employment of our graduates in all sectors of industry, government, and academe. They are active in the areas of hardware and software design and information technologies, and take the lead in the research and development of new computer systems and applications.
