Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering
Computer Engineering (CE) is a field of study that encompasses the fundamental principles, methods, and modern tools for the design and implementation of computing systems. This field spans and bridges topics in both electrical engineering (EE) and computer science (CS). Advances in technology are yielding smaller and higher-performance computer systems permeating into a wide range of applications, from communication systems to consumer products and common household appliances. A Bachelor of Science (BSc) in CE program should provide a balanced perspective on both hardware and software elements of computing systems, and on their relative design trade-offs as well as applications.
Enrollment and degree awarded for the past five years are as follows:
- PEO-1: Apply advanced engineering principles, skills, and practices to fill the technical needs of society, by solving complex computing and system engineering problems, critical to the economy.
- PEO-2: Engage in successful careers and assume leadership roles in advancing innovation and discovery and responding to technological and social challenges.
- PEO-3: Engage in lifelong learning and professional development through post-graduate education, advanced study in computer engineering and related fields, and participation in professional organizations and activities.
- PEO-4: Demonstrate the highest computer engineering professional standards, ethical practices and social responsibility in the pursuit of their careers.
Program Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this program, students will be able to:
- PLO-1. Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- PLO-2. Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
- PLO-3. Communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- PLO-4. Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
