The computer engineering currciulum provides:

  • An understanding of basic sciences, mathematics and communication skills.
  • A theoretical basis in electrical engineering.
  • The application of basic concepts to practical problems.
  • Advanced skills in problem solving where hardware and software trade-offs are necessary.
  • A strong laboratory experience stressing system design and implementation.
  • A general education that complements the technical content.
  • An understanding of the ethical, social, safety and economic factors required for engineering practice.

A sequence of advanced courses stressing engineering design and based on earlier courses prepare the student for the entry-level positions in the profession.

Computer engineering areas of specialization are architecture and design; embedded systems; and mulitimedia and networking.
