Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (BSCE) degree program is designed to prepare graduates to enter one of the newest and most exciting engineering fields. Computer engineers are not only involved in the design of the computer hardware essential to today’s world, they may be called on to develop software, program microprocessors, or design wired or wireless networks. The BSCE program at the CTU Colorado Springs campus is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.  http://www.abet.org/

 

The Program Objectives of the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering are to produce graduates who, after acquiring industry experience: 1) Lead the computer engineering industry in their companies and society by serving as mentors, fostering effective teams, and identifying critical needs and concerns as the future evolves. 2) Are competent Computer Engineers who value system-level perspectives; provide technical expertise; engage in continuous learning and advanced education; apply theory, experimentation, and modern engineering tools; and validate systems and solutions. 3) Demonstrate responsible citizenship of a diverse global society.

 

Outcomes:

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  • An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
