Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering
The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering degree gives students the opportunity to acquire a broad background in computer design, including embedded control systems, real-time systems, telecommunication systems, and software engineering.
The curriculum includes courses in general education, computer science, software engineering, and electrical engineering, and features a capstone senior design.
The program’s emphasis on real-time embedded control systems and hardware/software interfaces provides program graduates employment opportunities beyond graduates of traditional computer Engineering Degree Programs, including positions in the aerospace and defense industries.
The goal of the Computer Engineering Degree Program is to produce successful graduates who:
- Effectively analyze, design, and implement computer systems, including embedded, real-time, and safety-critical computer systems.
- Demonstrate professionalism in their work through continued learning and involvement in professional activities.
- Contribute to society by behaving ethically and responsibly.
- Communicate effectively in oral, written, and newly developing modes and media.
- Assume a variety of roles in teams of diverse membership.
The program curriculum is designed to facilitate accomplishment of these objectives by program graduates. The program includes significant project work designed to prepare students to work as part of a team on the development of complex systems involving both software and hardware. It allows the student opportunities to develop capabilities in teamwork, designing to requirements, and quality assurance techniques.
Small School Advantage
Students in small academic departments such as electrical and computer engineering at Embry-Riddle benefit from frequent one-to-one mentoring which gives added support that can make the difference between success and failure. Another advantage you have as a student in this department is access to personalized advising through frequent contacts with faculty members including your faculty advisor. Each of our faculty members brings substantial experience in academic advising and career counseling to our students. We encourage our students to take advantage of this benefit and to get to know their advisor early in their stay with us. Academic planning is the first step in career planning, a discipline that pays dividends throughout one's engineering career. Our graduates tell us that these benefits that we provide to all engineering students at Embry-Riddle, Prescott make this special among educational choices.
