B.S.Cp.E. in Computer Engineering
The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering program prepares students to have an understanding of computer hardware, software, and electrical engineering fundamentals, thereby acquiring knowledge to develop and/or apply many kinds of computing systems, such as microprocessors, computers, smart phones, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Students in the program will have knowledge of computer programming languages, hardware description languages, digital logic design, computer organization, electrical and electronics circuit design, and processing of electrical signals. They will have the ability to apply mathematical and statistical methods for understanding, development, and applications of computing devices.
The graduates of the program will be able to pursue (i) employment in electronic chip design/production companies, hardware/software services companies, and all industries requiring electrical and computer engineers, such as automotive, aerospace, defense, utilities and heavy-machinery; and (ii) advanced study in computer engineering or a related field.
