Why Computer Engineering?
Our Computer Engineering Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree will provide you
with all the training and knowledge needed to start a successful career in computer
engineering. Our curriculum emphasizes project-based learning. Small team projects
are required in most classes. These culminate in the two-semester Capstone project
class where students form teams and meet with a client, gather requirements, design,
implement, test and deploy a software or hardware project.
Electronic Circuits Foundation
Sophomore year introduces digital logic design in CSCE 211, and computer architects
in 212, as well as electrical circuits in ELCT 102 and 221. These are hands-on laboratory
classes where you not only learn the theory behind building analog and digital circuits
but also get to build them in our labs!
Computer Engineers are employed in building smartphones, embedded systems, programming
FPGA's, and building all kinds of electronic gadgets. Right now, there are more people
in the US employed in the computer industry then are employed in all other STEM disciplines,
combined. Computer jobs are expected to continue growing faster than all other STEM
jobs. The average national salary for computer engineers is $106,930.
How can I enhance my degree?
As an undergraduate student, you'll test your knowledge in real-world applications. The Capstone Design course is a required course for seniors that pairs a student team with an industry partner on a project to design an engineering or computing solution to a business problem.
