Computer Engineering, BS
The Computer Engineering bachelor’s degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. LSSU’s Computer Engineering program has been designed to put you in the high-demand computer market with the potential for good career growth. This program blends practical computer science courses in computer organization, databases, operating systems, and networks with traditionally hands-on electrical engineering courses in digital circuits, digital system, microcontrollers, computer programming, and digital signal processing. This combination gives you a broad-based education that ties software to hardware and theory to application. Some of the program highlights are:
- The program provides an excellent mix of theory and practical laboratory experiences, preparing you to solve real-world problems.
- For your senior year experience, choose from opportunities in cooperative education, industry-based projects or research projects.
- Engineering courses begin in your freshman year.
- Opportunities exist for you to work with faculty on current undergraduate research projects.
- You will study assembly language programming, computer architecture, microcontroller hardware and software, databases, digital signals and systems, and networking.
- A concentration is available in robotics and automation.
Opportunities are available as part of this program for students who are academically qualified. A certificate that documents this practical training is available.
Program Learning Outcomes
- Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
- Communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
- Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
- Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
