The computer engineering program is built around computer-aided design tools that can simulate and assist with the design of new devices and systems, such as high-performance computers, smartphones, tablets, robots, autonomous vehicles, drones, spacecraft, computer networks, smart factories, defense systems, and the internet-of-things.


Computer engineers possess expertise in both hardware and software, and there is a vast array of jobs to choose from. For example, they may develop new and powerful computer chips, microcontrollers, and FPGA-based accelerators, build software, design computer networks or help implement secure computer systems. The program prepares students for direct entry into a career in engineering or graduate study. Our graduates work at high-tech companies and government agencies such as Amazon, Meta, Google, BAE Systems, Boeing, General Electric, and others.
