Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering

Our undergraduate computer engineering program focuses on both the hardware and the software as well as their synergy in computer systems. Students will learn about basic electrical engineering as well as basic computer science concepts.

Our B.S. in Computer Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET,

Student Outcomes

"Student outcomes (SOs) describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program." The faculty approved SOs for the B.S. Computer Engineering program (adopted from the recommendations of the EAC) are:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to 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
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to 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
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.


Program Educational Objectives

"Program educational objectives (PEOs) are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years after graduation. Program educational objectives are based on the needs of the program’s constituencies."

We define two PEOs for our Computer Engineering program, where at least one of the PEOs should be attained by graduates:

  1. The alumni, in the first several years after receiving their baccalaureate degree, will be productive and successful in the professional practice of computer engineering as evidenced by:
    1. Job satisfaction and contributions toward the success of one’s employers;
    2. Effective participation and leadership on engineering teams;
    3. Being effective in identifying and solving real-world problems;
    4. Being effective at handling increased responsibilities;
    5. Receipt of job-related awards, promotions/raises, and professional accomplishments.
  2. The alumni, in the first several years after receiving their baccalaureate degree, will be successful in pursuing continuing education as evidenced by:
    1. Effective progression toward an advanced postundergraduate degree or professional licensure/certification;
    2. Participation in professional societies, professional conferences and meetings;
    3. Participation in life-long learning by adapting to new technologies, tools and methodologies in computer engineering, and responding to the challenges of a changing environment;
    4. Scholarly accomplishments (e.g., publications, presentations);
    5. Professional self-study.


If you are a member of one the program's constituencies (faculty, student, alumni, employer) you can leave feedback on our PEOs by filling this survey.
