The Computer Engineering Program is a program in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The Computer Engineering Program emphasizes the use of computers in engineering systems and interfacing of computers to physical systems; it is intended for those preparing to enter industry as well as those who wish to pursue graduate degrees in computer engineering, electrical engineering, software engineering, or computer science.
The program includes a spectrum of courses and considerable laboratory experience. In addition, depth in computer engineering is provided by technical electives. This program is supported by the Department of Computer and Information Science.
The Computer Engineering Program is designed to produce graduates who are able to
- practice computer engineering
- define and diagnose problems, and provide and implement computer engineering solutions in industry, business, and government
- observe engineering ethics in the practice of computer engineering
- communicate effectively with technically diverse audiences
- collaborate with others as a member or as a leader in an engineering team
- develop their knowledge beyond the undergraduate level and keep current with advancements in computer engineering
Computer Engineering students are limited to two grades of D in EEC courses. Technical electives must be chosen from the available EEC elective courses.
