Computer Engineering

Bachelor of Science in Engineering

Computer Engineers work in an area closely related to electrical and electronic engineering, but with more emphasis on digital circuits and software. At the School of Engineering, you will learn to design and develop digital systems, integrated circuits, and software for everything from embedded controllers, networking equipment and robots to computers and computer peripherals. The computation laboratory is equipped with Sun workstations and industrial-strength standard software, allowing you to test both hardware and software before fabricating circuit boards. Career opportunities are available in both small entrepreneurial companies, and large industry.
