The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering at ERAU combines in-demand computer engineering skills with a focus on advancing the aerospace, aviation, military, and commercial industries.
The program curriculum prepares students for in-demand roles after graduation by emphasizing real-time embedded systems that work to serve today’s most sophisticated vehicles. Computer engineering students at both Embry-Riddle residential campuses are provided access to knowledge and expertise in a vast array of aviation and aerospace areas. This distinction offers those graduating from this degree a clear advantage and a defined path into an industry that represents trillions of dollars globally.
Year after year, employers return to ERAU to hire the program’s graduates because of their technical skills and their real-world experiences.
The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 5% growth in overall employment for computer hardware engineers between 2016 and 2026 and indicates they have some of the highest starting salaries in the engineering field, with the 2018 median pay averaging $114,600 per year.
Beyond projects in the curriculum, student projects are available through professional organizations like the student branches of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) or competition hosts like the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI).
The Computer Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Earning a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Embry-Riddle will introduce students to digital hardware and software systems design, programming, circuit theory, computer design, and software engineering.
The applications are unlimited in gaming, unmanned aircraft, robotics, biomedicine, computer defense, security systems, and beyond.
About Computer Engineering at the Daytona Beach, FL Campus
Students earning their B.S. in Computer Engineering at ERAU’s Daytona Beach Campus get a chance to develop practical engineering knowledge and skills by working with hands-on projects, combining real-world system design and development practices with the fundamentals of computer engineering. Both individually and in teams, students learn to work with and develop embedded, real-time computer systems like those that lie at the heart of everything from mobile phones to spacecraft.
The B.S. in Computer Engineering degree is housed in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department of the College of Engineering.
