Computer Engineering Major, B.S.
The Computer Engineering (CPE) program offers the Bachelor of Science degree major.
The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering is a discipline with historical foundations in computer science and electrical engineering. It is concerned with the study of a variety of topics including circuit design, programmable logic, computer design, computer programming, data communication, machine intelligence, robotics, the algorithmic solutions of problems, and the various representations of information including numeric, alphabetic, visual, audio and sensory. In the modern society, the Computer Engineering discipline will also deal with secure computing in Web information, space and industry systems. This discipline deals with effective ways to represent and manipulate information, algorithms to process information, hardware systems and technologies to run software, design methodologies for hardware and software systems, and engineering techniques for ensuring the accuracy and cost effectiveness of these processes.
Students majoring in Computer Engineering must meet the following curriculum and are required to complete all General Studies courses, program pre-requisite courses, elective courses and core courses with a grade required for graduation. Technical elective courses must be approved by the program coordinator or department chair. Students who are considering a major in Computer Engineering are expected to consult with CPE faculty for advising.
Students are encouraged to enroll in an internship/cooperative education program through the University's Applied Learning Center to gain valuable work experience.
For every computer engineering course, a minimum grade of "C" is required for all prerequisites before a student can progress, A full-time student may complete the program in four years (eight semesters).
- Any course identified in the CPE major must be passed with a grade of "C" or better.
- CPE majors must comply with all University General Studies requirements.
- This is an extended major, therefore a minor is not required to fulfill the degree requirements.
- Students may refer to program flowchart or consult with an advisor for degree planning.
