Computer engineers apply the theories and principles of physics and mathematics to the design of hardware, software, networks and processes to solve technical problems. Hardware design engineers design and develop computer hardware, and embedded systems. Software engineers design and develop software systems for control and automation of manufacturing, business and management processes.
The program educational objectives of the Computer Engineering Program are to graduate Computer Engineering students who:
- Are successfully practicing in the field that makes use of their undergraduate preparation with solid theoretical and hands-on knowledge of Circuits, Electronics, Computer Software, Hardware, and Digital System Design.
- Contribute to society through their undergraduate preparation, by evaluating alternatives, and appreciating how processes can be interrelated.
- Pursue personal success by way of ethical, inclusive, and responsible behavior.
- Understand the challenges of a dynamically and globalized changing world and are willing to adapt their skills through continuous learning and self improvement.
- Master effective communication skills to obtain success either working individually or within a diverse team environment.
