B.S. Computer Engineering

NJIT’s Computer Engineering program provides a solid foundation in both computer software and hardware and builds on this knowledge through sophisticated design projects. Our students have exciting opportunities to participate in research projects on campus, activities sponsored by the IEEE and other professional societies and co-op programs in the region.

Summary

The Computer Engineering BS Program will provide students with a rigorous learning experience and prepare them for professional careers in the field. We expect each of our graduates to:

  • Succeed in computer engineering areas or other diverse fields that require analytical and professional skills.
  • Pursue professional development, including continuing or advanced education, relevant to their career plans.
  • Contribute to their fields or professions and society.

While students in the Computer Engineering B.S. program will learn a wide range of skills, we specifically aim for all of our students to meet the following learning outcomes:

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering;
  • An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data;
  • An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability and sustainability;
  • An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams;
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems;
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility;
  • An ability to communicate effectively;
  • The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and social context;
  • A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, life-long learning;
  • A knowledge of contemporary issues;
  • An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
