Computer Engineering Program

The objective of the computer engineering program at K-State is to prepare you for a professional career in engineering. Our goal is to provide you with the best possible education within the guidelines provided by ABET.

The computer engineering curriculum provides the following:

  • 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 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.
