Computer engineering involves the application of the principles of electrical engineering and computer science for the benefit of society. Computer engineers design and use digital computers for instrumentation, control, communication, and power conversion systems.

Students in the computer engineering program are assigned a faculty adviser upon entry into the program. The adviser helps the student prepare appropriate class schedules each semester and provides guidance on other academic and professional issues.

In the freshman year, students take introductory courses in physics, mathematics, and computer science to help develop a solid foundation based on these fundamental areas.

The sophomore year continues with more physics and mathematics, but also introduces the students to more advanced courses in computer science, computer engineering, and electrical circuits.

The junior year provides breadth in several areas of electrical and computer engineering and computer science including electronics, signals and systems, computer architecture, software engineering, and operating systems.

The senior year allows the student to develop some depth of knowledge in selected areas through a variety of technical elective courses. In addition, the student takes a two-semester sequence of design courses where students learn to design, test, and build a computer engineering system.

Additional courses in the humanities, social sciences, English, and public speaking help prepare the graduate to become a well-rounded and productive member of society.
