The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering prepares students to become engineers who understand both sides of the hardware-software interface, from designing circuits to developing operating systems. Multidisciplinary in scope, the BS in Computer Engineering curriculum integrates the fields of electrical engineering and computer science. This program uniquely prepares graduates to design and develop embedded, digital, and computer systems. Graduates with a degree in Computer Engineering are highly-skilled and ideally suited for industries that require cutting-edge hardware and software technologies.
Applicants to the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering program must have completed math through pre-calculus prior to attending DigiPen.
Like students in DigiPen’s other degree programs, the hallmark of the BS in Computer Engineering Program is a variety of semester-long and year-long projects where students receive critical feedback and evaluation from instructors who are experts in their respective fields. As they develop through the program, students have increasingly more creative control over their projects and are responsible component selection, design, testing, and implementation.
These projects complement rigorous coursework in computer science, engineering, mathematics, and physics. Some of the main topics covered include:
- calculus-based physics courses in mechanics, waves, and electricity & magnetism.
- mathematics courses in linear algebra, calculus, differential equations, discrete math, and statistics.
- engineering courses in digital and analog electric circuit design, microprocessors, microcontrollers, embedded systems, real-time operating systems, control systems, and digital signal processing.
- computer science courses in programming, data structures, algorithms, image processing, and artificial intelligence.
