BSE in Electrical Engineering: Computer Engineering Emphasis
A bachelor of science degree in engineering is the first step towards
immediate employment or further study in electrical engineering
or many other fields (business, law, medicine or another engineering
Working as a computer engineer
Computer engineers utilize
hardware and software skills to design, develop, test, and supervise the
manufacture of “smart” products like computer and other embedded systems.
Starting salaries for computer engineers are among the highest of all college
