Program Mission:

The mission of UTC’s Computer Engineering program is to provide accessible education in the theory and application of engineering in a supportive, interdisciplinary environment that

  • Prepares students for successful careers in industry, government, and academia
  • Emphasizes project-based design
  • Promotes life-long learning
  • Serves the engineering profession
  • Fosters ethical, professional, and social responsibility
Program Objectives:

In support of this mission, UTC’s Computer Engineering program produces graduates who, upon entering the work force or advanced studies:

  • Successfully function as responsible and ethical professionals in a variety of engineering disciplines
  • Function effectively in multidisciplinary environments
  • Adapt to various environments
  • Participate in further knowledge building opportunities
  • Are progressing toward Professional Registration

The Engineering program faculty includes those with degrees in this program area as well as faculty from other programs who teach the engineering fundamental courses.

The computer engineering program is supported by the faculty in the Computer Science and Engineering Department and embodies the realm of computer engineering applications. A thorough understanding of computer organization and architecture and the interaction between hardware and software is emphasized. The students’ experiences culminate in a two-semester computer engineering team project.
