Be in the communications center between hardware and software by enrolling in the Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering degree program. The program’s curriculum focuses on the theories, principles, and practices of traditional electrical engineering and mathematics and applies them to the design of computers and computer-based devices — the devices that now seem to run the world.
Throughout the computer and electrical engineering degree program, you’ll study the design and development of both digital hardware systems and the software that enables that hardware — and how both users and other hardware interact with those systems. Because clean computer engineering is at the heart of how hardware and software work together, a central focus will be on embedded systems that rely on both, such as cell phones, digital audio players, digital video recorders, alarm systems, x-ray machines, and laser surgical tools. Your analytical thinking and design skills will be encouraged and developed in the pursuit of the finest integration of the devices making a profound difference in everyday life.
