Learn how to design and build new computer technology by majoring in Computer Engineering. Our interdisciplinary program is ABET-accredited and gives you hands-on experience working with electronic circuits, hardware architecture, and software programming.
In this program, you will...
- learn how digital technology works, from hardware design to software programming
- take physics, computer science, mathematics, and engineering courses for an integrated knowledge of how the areas overlap and interact
- apply what you learn in hands-on labs and semester- and year-long projects
- consider ethical questions and how your faith integrates with your engineering practice
Computer Engineering students gain a firm grounding in the underlying physics and mathematical principles of engineering and computer science.
Required physics and engineering courses cover...
- electric circuits
- mathematics modeling
- embedded systems
- building custom-designed circuits using Taylor's own circuit mill
- creating and testing simulated CPU architectures
- control systems
- hardware architecture
- software programming
Hands-on work, in addition to labs, include:
- Junior Engineering Project: A semester-long project with special emphasis on the design process.
- Senior Engineering Project: A year-long design and implementation project that culminates with a poster session in which the student presents the various phases of the project, along with lessons learned and the designed product, to faculty and judges active in the industry.
- Practicum: Every Computer Engineering student must complete a 320-hour practicum.
