The undergraduate program in Computer Engineering at CSUF provides students with a strong theoretical and practical background in the computer hardware and 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. Topics integrated into the curriculum include digital systems, computer organization and architecture, processor interfacing techniques, VHDL design, advanced electronics and embedded system design. Elective courses required by the program allow students to specialize in key engineering technology and computer science areas. The program also requires two semesters of multidisciplinary senior design project. The computer engineering program is designed to develop an ability to apply design and analysis knowledge to the practice of computer engineering in an effective and professional manner.
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 ad manufacturing, autonomous systems, consumer electronics, expert systems, smart devices, digital signal processing (DSP) systems, computer manufacturing from PDAs to super computers, 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.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
