Computer Engineering- B.S.
Computer Engineering is an interdisciplinary degree program that combines the knowledge core of engineering disciplines with mathematics and computer science to solve problems.
The computer engineering curriculum includes the science and technology of software and hardware design, embedded systems, computer architecture, and VLSI in addition to signal processing, solid state devices and microcontroller applications.
Graduates of the Computer Engineering B.S. degree program are prepared for careers in the computer systems industry, focusing on computer systems design and hardware engineering, and have career opportunities in research, design and development in a variety of industries.
Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to:
- Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering and technology as required by the field of computer engineering.
- Use math, sciences, and engineering processes to analyze problems, formulate solutions, conduct experiments, and interpret data.
- Communicate engineering and scientific information using oral and written arguments and visual presentation.
- Recognize and evaluate ethical, global and social impacts of computer engineering innovation.
- Integrate scientific knowledge, problem-solving skills, and engineering tools to design software and hardware for computer systems.

Students that do not place in MATH1040 Calculus I will need to take an extra course(s), MATH1020 Fundamentals of Algebra and/or MATH1030 Precalculus, as prerequisite(s). If needed one, or both, will count as a free elective(s).
D Directed Experiential Education (DEE) opportunities are based on project availability with community partners and student eligibility. For more information, visit Experiential Education & Career Services (EE&CS).
IcTypically, internships require a minimum of six credits. Students interested in a 9 or 12-credit internship can apply additional experiential learning and free elective credits, if available. Students are strongly encouraged to contact a faculty advisor before scheduling internship and free elective credits.
# In addition to classes, free elective credits may be applied to a number of options such as internship, study abroad, Directed Experiential Education courses and courses in a specialization or minor as relevant. For Accelerated Master's program students, up to three graduate-level courses may apply. Students are strongly encouraged to contact a faculty advisor before scheduling free elective credits.
NOTE: Students must pass MATH0010 Pre-Algebra or have equivalent placement scores to enroll in required math course(s).
Note: Students must pass ENG0001 Writing Workshop or have equivalent placement scores to enroll in ILS 2000-level courses
In collaboration with academic colleges across all JWU campuses, JWU Global Study Abroad programs offer a variety of international options for major, minor, arts and sciences, and elective credit at many affordable price points for students during the academic year, break periods, and summer. Faculty-led, exchange, affiliate, and direct-enroll programs range in duration from one week to a full semester or full year. Financial aid may be applied and scholarships are available.
