Bachelor of Science, Computer Engineering (Program Description)

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering degree program is designed to provide a synergetic foundation in the discipline of Electrical Engineering though a broad education experience. The basic required program of instruction in fundamental theory and laboratory practice is balanced by courses in concentration areas in Energy, Robotics, Automotive, and Machine Intelligence complemented with electives in Advanced Topics. The program is directed towards the practical use of scientific, engineering, and technical principles by providing students with experiences in our hallmark design sequence with project-based learning activities and applied research opportunities. Underlying the program is a recognition that the impact of technology upon the quality of life is increasing and that the proper application of technology is critical to meeting current, emerging needs of both industry and society.

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

Program Educational Objectives

Graduates of the Computer Engineering program are expected to develop a solid foundation and professional skills essential for today’s workforce, addressing the diverse and evolving role of computer engineers. Within a few years of graduation, graduates should:

1.   Demonstrate competency in mathematics, science, technology, and engineering problem solving in developing solutions in a specialized area of computer engineering either individually or through multidisciplinary teams.

2.   Demonstrate success in technical or business activities through engineering ability, communication, professional and ethical skills and knowledge.

3.   Demonstrate professional growth through post-graduate education, continuing education, or professional activity.
