Engineering and Computer Science Programs
Computer Engineering ( Bachelor )
An Engineer is a person who applies their knowledge of science to design and create things that are safe, reliable and practical. Computer Engineers focus their skills on computer systems, especially the hardware components of those systems. Computer Engineering grew out of the fields of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, so Computer Engineers also have a strong background in software design, especially in the ways that software and hardware interact. Computer Engineers must also understand the interface between different pieces of hardware, and how computer systems integrate into the larger picture. Many of today’s state-of-the-art products communicate with computers or incorporate computer capabilities. Computer Engineers are vital to the design and creation of these products.
