The Bachelor of Science in computer engineering program covers both computer hardware and software. We emphasize computer hardware - from the scale of individual transistors - up through embedded computers, networks, high-level languages, and software engineering. We design and implement digital logic and computer systems that integrate hardware and software components into functioning systems that meet a user-defined set of specifications.
We love the inside, and outside, of computer systems.

You can expect discussion and hands-on learning experiences in hardware, software and everything in between, such as:
- Theory of Computation
- Algorithms and data structures
- Programming methodology and languages
- Computer elements and architecture
To enhance your in-depth theoretical explorations, you will spend a significant amount of time in our various laboratories. Laboratories will emphasize experimentation as well as design, and are developed around industry practices and demands. This provides you with the most immersive and relevant engineering curriculum, giving you not only the technical knowledge, but also the practical skills that employers desire.
Over the past 10 years over 90% of our graduates have started their first professional career position within nine months of graduation. Many have their first job arranged before they graduate. Most of our graduates go into the commercial world in industries such as aerospace, telecommunications, software development, and consumer electronics. Some of our graduates (about 10%) decide to go on to graduate school and some work for federal government agencies.
