B.S.Cmp.E. in Computer Engineering

Computer engineers are masters in the design and development of embedded computers used in aircrafts, cars, communication switching systems, biomedical instruments, industrial robots, and household appliances. We’re already heavily dependent on our computers and other similar devices, but this dependency is only going to grow as more and more everyday items come online—so we need more engineers to innovate and build solutions that improve our lives.

You’re encouraged to explore the possibility of a dual major in this and electrical engineering.
