The computer engineering curriculum deals with all aspects of designing, building, and programming of computer systems. It combines fundamentals of computer science and electrical engineering in one major, as it introduces students to both hardware (electronic circuits) and software (programming) of computer systems. This degree program prepares graduates for successful, profitable, and lifelong careers in computer systems design, mobile and embedded computing devices, sensor networks, reconfigurable logic, software engineering, cyber security, Internet of Things, and machine intelligence applications.
Newly established laboratories and facilities support the program in educating students to become computer engineers for the design, implementation, maintenance, and security assurance of computing, control, and communication systems. Graduates of the program will pursue job opportunities in the various industry, government, manufacturing, and business employers in Mississippi and throughout the region.
