Engineering Science Degree, Computer Engineering Area of Concentration
Computer engineering, sometimes mixed with systems engineering, is one of the newest disciplinary specializations to be found in engineering schools. It deals with all aspects, both hardware and software, of the computer industry. Many of the topics covered by this field were formerly spread out among a variety of departments, including electrical engineering and computer science. Indeed many computer engineering programs are still handled as subdivisions within an electrical engineering department.
Upon completion of this program a student will be able to:
- Identify, formulate, and solve basic physics and engineering problems in programming and digital circuits.
- Design simple systems using computing theory and numerical methods in the area of Computer Engineering.
- Use appropriate computer application software in computer engineering.
Meet with your academic advisor regularly to make sure you are on track to graduate and/or transfer. The program advising guide outlines the degree requirements and is meant to supplement the advising process.
This track will prepare students to transfer to a four-year university with a major in computer engineering. See all engineering transfer agreements.
Career possibilities include energy auditor, security management specialist, wind energy project manager, compliance manager, and computer systems analyst. Some may require a bachelor's degree.

A suggested Computer Engineering course sequence for full-time students follows.
All students should review the advising guide and consult an advisor. Most courses have either assessment levels that must be met or prerequisites (courses that must be taken first). Part-time students and those who need to meet assessment levels or take prerequisite courses will take longer to complete a degree. An advisor will help make sure you are taking your courses in the right order.
All degree-seeking students must take a central group of General Education courses in English, mathematics, arts, behavioral and social sciences, humanities, and science. These courses are included in the suggested course sequence below.
