Computer Engineering

Welcome to the Computer Engineering Program (CpE) in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF).

Over the past decade, there has been a rapid increase in demand for computer engineers in various fields ranging from the area of mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.) to high-performance computing systems needed for e-prescription and electronic health record-keeping. This trend only continues to grow.

CpE is committed to providing exciting academic programs. It strives to combine the best facilities along with a driven faculty and an innovative curriculum to prepare students for the significant engineering challenges of the 21st century. The program offers an undergraduate (BS), a graduate (MS) and a 4-Year Integrated BS-MS degree in Computer Engineering.
