Computer Engineering

Computer engineering is one of two programs offered by the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering. The rapid evolution of computers has produced the need for a new type of computer professional fluent in both the hardware and software aspects of computer systems. A computer engineering degree provides you with the necessary training to meet this need, teaching you to apply engineering principles to the design of a full range of computer products, from dedicated embedded processors and stand-alone CPUs to data communication networks and software systems. Each program will also provide you with the design skills needed to work in such diverse areas as robotics, medical devices, data systems, next-generation aircraft, digital networks, video imaging, the entertainment industry, manufacturing, information processing, energy systems, transportation systems, and embedded control systems.
