Computer Engineering


Computer Engineering is part of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at UWM. Computer engineering pertains to the design, implementation and maintenance of hardware and software components of computers and computer-controlled equipment. Our program provides students with a broad and strong technical background in the field. It also helps students develop a solid grounding in computing, mathematics and engineering. The students will learn to apply these theoretical principles to design hardware, software, networks, and computerized equipment for diverse application domains.

Mission Statement: The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science is committed to outstanding undergraduate and graduate education, distinguished research programs, and strong service to our students, professional and technical societies, and the community.

Computer Engineering Major. The minimum number of credits required to complete the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering is 126. Students who need background preparation courses in math, English, and foreign language may need additional credits.
