B.S. in Computer Engineering

As a computer engineer, you’ll blend computer science and electrical engineering to design, develop and test computer networks, systems and technology. This field requires an innovative approach to problem-solving to make computing systems faster and better.

Computer engineering students learn to combine computing concepts with technical hardware skills. You’ll mix your knowledge of computer science with electrical engineering principles to build and operate physical systems of computing.

Focus areas of this major include: 

  • embedded systems and robotics
  • signal processing and communications
  • VLSI design
  • high-performance computing

Computer engineering majors take many of the same core computing courses as computer science students but will study electrical engineering in place of another subject area of choice.
