Curriculum College of Engineering and Computing 

Educational Objectives for the Computer Engineering Program

Five years after graduation, computer engineering graduates should be:

  • contributing to their communities and society with innovations in computer technology and applications and an understanding of contemporary technological issues
  • advancing in their careers through their knowledge of computer engineering, by communicating and working effectively as team members, and by interacting responsibly with others in society
  • continuing their professional development through professional study and research.


See College of Engineering and Computing  for entrance requirements, progression requirements, and special academic opportunities.

In addition to the general education and progression requirements of the College of Engineering and Computing, a grade of C or better is required in MATH 374 and all CSCE courses applied to the degree.

All required CSCE courses and courses taken as major electives are major courses and may not be counted toward a minor or application area. All other required courses and electives may be used for a minor or application area as appropriate. CSCE 101 and 102 are not major courses and are not used in computing the major GPA.


Degree Requirements (126 Hours)


  1. The liberal arts courses must include at least one history course, one fine arts course, and one social science course. The department maintains a list of approved humanities and social science electives.

  2. The math elective is satisfied with MATH 526 or 527 or 544 or CSCE 561. Other courses in linear algebra or numerical analysis may be substituted with permission of the department.

  3. The department maintains a list of approved major electives for the computer engineering degree. Currently, CSCE 330, CSCE 335, ELCT 321, ELCT 331, and most CSCE courses numbered 510 and higher are approved. CSCE 561 satisfies the requirement as either a major elective or as a mathematics elective.
