Did you know?
Our computer engineering program provides a strong foundation and hands-on experiences in hardware design (circuits, signal processing, electronics, embedded and computer systems) and software design (programming, networks, and operating systems).
Each program in the ECCS department shares the same goals of producing high quality graduates through a broad-based curriculum that stresses fundamentals and the development of a professional work ethic. Many of our courses offer accessible, hands-on, practical laboratory experiences using relevant equipment and disciplined practices.
Computer engineering is a fast growing field with many opportunities. Computer engineers are trained problem solvers who understand both the hardware and software aspects of computers. Our program provides students with challenging hand-on experiences through a broad-based, rigorous curriculum providing exposure to various programming languages and development tools in their software courses, practical labs featuring up-to-date equipment in their hardware courses, and coverage of such advanced areas as embedded systems design, networks, signal processing, and software engineering.
An Advanced Energy Concentration is also available. The concentration requires both specific and elective energy relevant courses as displayed in the document below called “Computer Engineering Advanced Energy Concentration Curriculum Guide”.
