The BS in computer engineering degree at the University of Mount Union allows students to integrate electrical engineering and computer science to design, build, and test computing systems. From processors and circuit boards to memory devices and networks, computer engineers are continuously making computing systems faster, smaller, reliable, and more mobile.
The computer engineering major is one of five (5) programs housed in the School of Engineering along with the two successful ABET accredited programs in mechanical engineering and civil engineering.
Courses in Computer Engineering
Our faculty, comprised of experts in the fields of information security (coding, operating systems, mobile computing, etc.) and computer systems (parallel processing, embedded systems, integrated circuits, etc.), work closely with students to help prepare them for a rewarding career. These courses are simply a few highly-focused engineering courses that make up the 128-credit hour bachelor's degree program, which also includes general education courses in chemsitry, calculus, and physics.
Operating Systems Concepts
A fundamental overview of operating systems, operating system structures, processes, process synchronization, deadlocks, CPU scheduling, memory management, file systems, and secondary storage management.
Students majoring in computer engineering at Mount Union will have ample opportunities to benefit from these real-world experiences outside the classroom, and culminate in building team work skills, communications skills, and hands-on skills that are crucial to career success. From internships and lab experiences, to undergraduate research with faculty and student competitions, Mount Union computer engineering students are prepared to be leaders in the field.
