Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering

The 127 credit hour program in computer engineering leads to the Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering. Thirty-two hours of mathematics and physics and 9 hours of computer science complement the required 42 hours of work in the computer engineering area. Nine hours in written and oral communications, 18 hours in the humanities and social sciences, and 17 hours of engineering electives provide the opportunity for the student to acquire a general educational background and gain the cultural attributes associated with a university education.

The individual holding this degree will have advanced knowledge in his or her field of engineering interest and in addition will have a university educational background involving mathematics, the physical sciences, and the humanities and social sciences. Completion of this curriculum will enable the graduate to enter employment in positions involving computer hardware design and applications, computer software design and development, microcomputer based applications, and computer networking. The program also leads to the preparation for graduate work in computer engineering, computer science or electrical engineering.
