CPE Design Technical Electives

Starting with simple design problems in the sophomore year, to upper level design technical electives, computer engineering students find design to be integrated throughout their curriculum.

Every BSCPE student is required to take at least two design technical electives in his or her area of technical interest during the senior year. These courses integrate material from fundamental courses in mathematics, basic sciences, and engineering topics with material from the specific technical area to provide a comprehensive design experience.
