Computer Engineering is a diverse and ubiquitous field, touching people's lives in many ways. It is primarily concerned with the creation of information processing devices and systems. Computer Engineers conduct design and development in all aspects of computing and are trained to address critical interface issues between hardware and software essential to systems throughout society. The BS Computer Engineering program at UB offers students a solid foundation in computer engineering skills, such as circuit design, performance evaluation, and analysis through hardware-software integration in embedded systems. Outside the classroom setting students can join student clubs, like the Association for Computing Machinery and Scientista, work as undergraduate teaching assistants, and participate in research projects. Our graduates go on to rewarding careers in industry and pursue graduate degrees.
The Computer Engineering BS program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
The curriculum is designed to meet several educational objectives. These program education objectives (PEOs) are broad statements that describe the expected accomplishments of graduates within a few years after graduation. Specific PEOs are that graduates will:
- work productively as Computer Engineers, including in leadership and supportive roles on diverse teams,
- communicate effectively,
- adapt to and shape a rapidly evolving computing landscape,
- recognize and address societal needs in their professional endeavors, and
- practice their profession with high regard to legal and ethical responsibilities.
