The Computer Engineering curriculum at The University of Scranton is broad-based with continually updated content in computers, engineering science, and engineering design. Combining features of computer science and electrical engineering, the Computer Engineering program is focused on the design, construction and integration of software and hardware systems.
The mission of the computer engineering program is to develop knowledgeable and competent engineering professionals who exemplify the humanistic, Catholic and Jesuit traditions of commitment to social justice, service to others, life-long learning, ethical and moral responsibility, and concern for the environment. The integration of The University of Scranton core curriculum is an essential part of the CE curriculum. The University core curriculum includes a structured program in theology, philosophy, ethics, and written and oral communication. Roughly half of the credits in the CE program is devoted to engineering and computer science topics, with emphasis on hardware and software skills, simulation and design. The computer engineering program culminates in a two-term capstone senior project where each student must design, construct, program, and debug a self-guided, artificially intelligent robot.
Graduates of our CE program are well prepared to embark on careers in computer engineering or to further their education at graduate school. Our engineering graduates have challenging and rewarding careers in such diverse fields as biomedical instrumentation, semiconductor fabrication, pharmaceutical manufacturing, secondary education-mathematics/physics, patent law, national defense systems, and national space programs.
