In the T.J. Smull College of Engineering, you’ll obtain a strong foundation in the field of computer engineering. You’ll take courses in embedded systems, computer architecture, networking, security, electronics, and computer programming. If you’re passionate about a particular subject – like artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, renewable energy, software engineering or robotics – you can choose from a variety of upper-level elective courses in these areas. If your interest lies more in coding, our computer science degree may be the right fit for you.
Your computer engineering education will blend challenging coursework with hands-on, practical experiences. You'll work on team projects and solve software engineering challenges for actual clients as early as your first year. By the time you are a senior, you will tackle a capstone project that will use all that you've learned. You'll apply the knowledge you learn in class, but, more importantly, you will have the opportunity to hone skills in leadership, teamwork, creativity, entrepreneurship, & critical thinking. These skills will help you find a job and land that promotion.
Our program emphasizes getting to know the individual student for personalized mentorship and academic advising in a supportive and collaborative environment. Your professors and fellow students in the college will become part of your academic support network, working for your success. You will have the opportunity to connect with ONU alumni and they will also help you succeed and open doors for you.
Upon graduation, you'll be ready for whatever the future holds, whether it's working in computer security, designing software applications and hardware, or starting your own company!
