B.S. in Computer Engineering
Computer engineering combines the computer-oriented side of electrical engineering with ideas in computer science for design of low-level software — operating systems, kernels and drivers — that allows various computer-based hardware pieces of a system to work together.
The hands-on, laboratory-based approach to the curriculum ensures students are well-versed in project development and problem-solving.
