Computer Engineering - BSc

ess-students on campus

Program Overview

The Computer Engineering program is the discipline that embodies the science and technology of design, construction, implementation, and maintenance of software and hardware components of modern computing systems and computer-controlled equipment. It is solidly grounded in the theories and principles of computing, mathematics, science, and engineering and it applies these theories and principles to solve technical problems through the design of computing hardware, software, networks, and processes. Computer engineers are involved in the design of computer-based systems which includes (in addition to systems for portable, desktop, and client/server environments and communications devices) distributed computing environments and embedded systems just to name a few. The convergence of several established technologies (such as television, telecommunications, and networking infrastructures) results in the creation of massive challenges and opportunities for computer engineers.
