Computer Engineering Degrees
The Computer Engineering program at CSUF provides students with a strong theoretical and practical background in both the hardware and the software aspects of computer-based systems, along with the engineering analysis, design, and implementation skills necessary to work between the two. The curriculum is based on an engineering philosophy, with emphasis on hardware more than software.
The proliferation of embedded systems in an increasing array of industrial products assures a ready market for graduates in the computer engineering discipline. Computer engineers are employed in a wide range of industries including VLSI chip design and manufacturing, autonomous systems, consumer electronics, expert systems, smart devices, Digital Signal Processing (DSP) systems, computer manufacturing from tablets to supercomputers, and automatic controls. A majority of products such as airplanes, automobiles, home appliances, consumer electronics, robots, etc. use computers and employ computer engineers in their designs. Computer engineers are also needed in the design and implementation of computer networks for business, industrial, and governmental institutions.
