Computer Engineering - Bachelor's (B.S.)

STEM Program STEM Program
CIP CODE 14.0901.00


The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering degree program will provide students the knowledge and skills required to develop and apply computer systems to practical, real-world problems.


In addition to required core courses, students can choose from a large selection of electives to focus on such diverse topics as multi-threaded programming on bare-metal, custom real-time operating systems, and embedded Linux systems; implementation of IP stacks for computer networking; network and wireless protocol development for Internet of Things devices; design of real-time operating systems; implementation of RISC processors in FPGA devices; design of digital logic, system on chip, and microprocessor systems; control of systems with electromechanical actuators and sensors; and design of digital and wireless communication systems.

They will also apply the knowledge and skills gained in the classroom in real-world settings through internships or co-ops and course projects, including the capstone project.

The 124-hour curriculum leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in computer engineering. Transfer students may receive credit for courses listed in the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s Field of Study Curriculum.
