A Major in Computer Engineering leading to the B.S.Cp.E. degree consists of 127 credit hours.
The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (B.S.Cp.E.) degree has a very structured curriculum. An eight-semester sequence of courses at more than a full-time load forms the core of the curricula to develop the concepts and design and analysis techniques fundamental to the various areas of specialization. This program should be initiated early while at UNC Charlotte. Beginning the program late or after transferring from another institution will likely delay completion within 4 years.
Emphasis is placed on the utilization of computers throughout the curricula. Graduates have a wide range of job opportunities as power engineers, communication engineers, digital design engineers, test engineers, embedded system developers, network engineers, control engineers, project engineers, robotic system engineers, optoelectronic engineers, application engineers, analog engineers, medical product engineers, and process engineers.
