The Bachelor of Science 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.
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.
The computer engineering major is housed in the Department of Engineering along with the two successful ABET accredited programs in mechanical engineering and civil engineering.
