The computer engineering program is constructed so that you develop a working knowledge of engineering design based on a broad spectrum of concepts, principles and techniques.

Computer engineering provides you with skills in C/C++ and Java in the context of modern integrated development environments. You gain experience with hardware description languages (HDL) and industry standard simulation, synthesis, debug and verification tools for FPGA hardware design. Ultimately, your skills are showcased in a design project that you complete as a capstone to the program.

Concepts are balanced in hardware, software and systems, along with a strong set of communication and teamwork skills that industry leaders seek.
