What is Computer Engineering and Systems

The Computer Engineering and Systems (CES) program combines elements of both electrical engineering and computer science, granting students both the theoretical and practical foundations needed to solve problems in all aspects of computing. 

Computer engineers are electrical engineers that have additional knowledge in software design and hardware-software integration. Thus, graduates are prepared to work on a variety of applications including circuit design, microprocessor design, software engineering, and embedded systems — the integration of computer systems into other kinds of systems such as appliances, robots or motor vehicles.

There is an increasing demand for highly-trained computer engineers, and the bachelor of science degree in Computer Engineering and Systems educates each student to be a responsible and productive engineer who can effectively apply emerging technologies to meet future challenges.

The B.S. in Computer Engineering and Systems is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.


GETTING STARTED

BS Computer Engineering and Systems

The Computer Engineering and Systems (CES) Program will educate each student to be a responsible and productive engineer who can effectively apply emerging technologies to meet future challenges.

Admission Requirements - BS CES

The Computer Engineering and Systems program embodies the science and engineering of design, construction, implementation and maintenance of both the hardware and software elements of computing systems and systems containing embedded computers.
Admission to the major is competitive. Please review the prerequisites and application process carefully.

Curriculum - BS CES

Computer engineering began as a combination of computer science and electrical engineering and has evolved into a separate discipline. It is solidly grounded in the theories and principles of computing, mathematics, science, and engineering. These theories and principles are used to solve technical problems through the design of computing hardware, software, networks, and processes.

Objectives and Outcomes - BS CES

The Computer Engineering and Systems (CES) program will educate each student to be a responsible and productive engineer who can effectively apply emerging technologies to meet future challenges.
