The Computer Engineering (BSE) program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, , under the commission’s General Criteria and Program Criteria for Electrical, Computer, Communications, Telecommunication(s) and Similarly Named Engineering Programs.


The mission of the Computer Engineering (CMPE) undergraduate program is to offer a program that attracts students of the highest caliber and to provide them with an education combining depth and breadth in the design and engineering of computing systems while taking advantage of the diverse resources of a large liberal arts university. Such an education, prepares them to immediately assume positions of leadership in both technological and management capacities. Furthermore, it allows them to pursue further graduate studies toward careers in engineering and applied science research and education as well as other career paths.

Program Educational Objectives

A few years after graduating, Computer Engineering program alumni will:

  1. Successfully integrate the fundamentals of computer engineering and design/realization practices to develop innovative solutions to complex technological problems.
  2. Be able to develop engineering visions and lead diverse teams to realize these visions.
  3. Engage in careers or graduate studies in computer engineering, networking and telecommunications engineering, embedded and real-time systems, robotics, parallel and distributed computing, or their chosen field.
  4. Be recognized in their chosen fields for their leadership, integrity and sensitivity to global societal issues.

Student Outcomes

Students graduating with a degree in Computer Engineering have:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
