Computer engineering involves the design and development of computer hardware and software and an understanding of how the computer and its devices interact — which is why computer engineering is closely allied with electrical engineering and computer science.
A computer engineer’s job also includes integrating software options with the hardware that will drive applications in many different fields such as:
Our program will give you a rock-solid foundation in both hardware design and software engineering. The emphasis throughout the curriculum is on the design experience, leading to a two-semester project in the senior year.
Outstanding computer labs and facilities and a dedicated, accessible, full-time faculty will enhance your learning. You’ll reap the rewards of the individual attention you get from your instructors throughout your career.
Earn your M.S. in Electrical Engineering in one additional year
The more you know, the more successful you could be. Due to the advancements in the engineering profession, employers are now looking for a breadth and depth of knowledge beyond the bachelor’s degree. In fact, the master’s degree is slowly becoming the entry-level degree into the profession.
In light of this development, we offer you a seamless transition to the master’s in electrical engineering. You’ll be able to complete both your bachelor’s in computer engineering and your master’s in electrical engineering with a concentration in computer engineering in five years.
What is the upside of a master's degree? Typical salaries for engineers with a master’s degree are about 25% higher than those with a bachelor’s degree alone. You’ll also see a wider and more attractive range of career opportunities and quicker promotions.
