The Department of Computer Engineering and Computer Science offers programs leading to a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering, or a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, The goal of both programs is to prepare graduates for a wide variety of computer-related careers by integrating the theoretical foundations of the discipline with practical applications. The degree in Computer Engineering focuses on computer hardware (design, construction, and operation of computer systems) while the Computer Science degree places more emphasis on computer software (algorithms). The high school student planning to enter either program is advised to pursue a strong program in science and mathematics.
