Computer Engineering (BS)

What is A Computer Engineering (BS) Degree?

Computer Engineering is sort of a combination of Computer Science and Electronics Technology because the field involves solving problems (like all engineers do) in computer hardware and the connection between the hardware and software.  So, Computer Engineers, sometimes called Software Engineers, develop and test software to be used on certain computer equipment—software like games, business applications, or even whole new software systems.

To earn a BS in Computer Engineering you’ll take courses in logic and digital design, microelectronics, and circuits, and you’ll probably do project work with most courses. You may even have an internship. You’ll cover both electronics technology and computer science in this one degree.  The program is designed for you to get technical training and some real-life experience developing software in one neat package.  When you have the BS, you’ll be ready for entry-level work or ready to move on to advanced training.

The video below discusses a “typical” program, so it should help regardless of which school you are considering.
