ECS classes are hands-on. I love that because I am able to better retain information and learn by doing. My classmates and I plan, implement and execute our own code and hardware design.— Dana Chea ‘21
About the College of Engineering and Computer Science
Future engineers and computer scientists learn to create new knowledge and technologies through ten undergraduate majors. Students have access to nationally regarded research centers, state-of-the-art lab spaces, and challenging internships.
CoursesSample courses for computer engineering majors include:
- Introduction to Computer and Network Security
- Systems and Network Programming
- Web System Architecture and Programming
- Computer Architecture
- VLSI and System-on-a-Chip
- Design of Operating Systems
- Embedded and Mobile Systems Laboratory
- The computer engineering program provides both breadth and depth in fundamental and emerging areas in computer engineering. The curriculum prepares students for our rapidly changing, technology-driven world.
- Choose your technical electives to prepare you for the career you envision.
- Your computer engineering major can be combined with a minor from the College of Arts and Sciences, or two minors – one in mathematics and one in a discipline outside the College of Engineering and Computer Science. There is also a five-year combined curriculum that allows you to complete requirements from both colleges and receive two degrees.
- Computer engineering students obtain paid internships across the country with the help of their dedicated career advisor. These internships provide valuable real-world experience in areas of interest and importance for the students.
- Collaborate with faculty on research projects at on- and off-campus institutes and labs.
- The College of Engineering and Computer Science has 20 co-curricular organizations as well as student organizations like Engineers without Borders and WiSE (Women in Science and Engineering).
- The 5-year H. John Riley Dual Engineering/MBA Program allows you to earn a bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering and an MBA from Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management.
- Syracuse University's B.S. in computer engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and the State of New York Department of Education.
