Computer Engineering

In some computer engineering programs, the student designs only a semblance of a real-world device, or does so only on paper or, perhaps, in a senior-design class, but in our Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering, design and build are hands-on from day one. 

Working both individually and in teams, students have the opportunity not only to learn about embedded computer systems, but also to develop those systems and learn from that process throughout the curriculum. This program is offered at the Florida and Arizona campuses.
