Students with computer controlled helicopterBachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (BSCPE)

The Computer Engineering program prepares students for careers relating to the analysis, design and application of modern computer systems, including both hardware and software components. The Computer Engineering faculty is committed to sustaining a vigorous academic environment that values quality and diversity in the educational experience. Program strengths include a major engineering design experience, integration of hardware/software and computer systems issues, especially in the context of real-time, embedded, and networked systems; use of contemporary engineering design and modeling tools throughout the curriculum; and advanced engineering design electives in hardware, software and networking.

A broad background in engineering is developed through the engineering core curriculum and courses from electrical and computer engineering. The curriculum provides a thorough basis in mathematics, probability and statistics, physical sciences, engineering sciences, laboratory experience, and design experience. This background enables students to apply computer engineering principles to a variety of contemporary problems. An engineering approach is emphasized throughout computer related coursework.

Computer Engineering Advising and Mentoring

Computer Engineering majors receive curriculum advising from the Center for Engineering Education (CUE2) while they complete their general education requirements (i.e. mathematics, science coursework).  At that point, Computer Engineering majors will be advised and mentored by a Computer Engineering faculty member.  Students should contact the Electrical and Computer Engineering office in EB 276 to learn which Faculty member has been assigned to them.
