Computer Engineering Minor


Return to Swanson School of Engineering Return to: Swanson School of Engineering

The Computer Engineering (CoE) minor provides students with a strong foundation in the design of computing hardware and software systems. The minor consists of three introductory courses and two advanced courses offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The minor program’s required core includes foundational courses on digital electronics, embedded processors, computer programming, data structures and algorithms, and accompanying laboratory experiences.  After completing the required core, students can satisfy the remaining CoE minor requirements by choosing two advanced Computer Engineering curriculum courses.  Students who complete the CoE minor will be prepared to create exciting new technologies requiring fundamental computer hardware and software knowledge.

All students interested in declaring a minor in computer engineering should do so on their application for graduation. Students who wish to pursue a minor in computer engineering should contact the Program Coordinator for additional information.

Computer Engineering Fundamentals


Completing three, sophomore-level courses is required of all CoE minors (ECE 0201, ECE 0202, and ECE 0301).   After completing these courses, students will have a solid foundation in computer hardware design and the development of software applications.

Advanced Computer Engineering Topics


Students must complete their choice of two, advanced ECE courses from the Computer Engineering curriculum.  After completing these courses, students will have a depth of knowledge in one or more areas in Computer Engineering.

Note:


Students cannot apply more than one course from their major toward a CoE minor.
