Computers and electronic devices excite you. You may have taken them apart, then reassembled them. Perhaps you have a fundamental understanding and experience in programming.
Earning a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Embry-Riddle will introduce you to digital hardware and software systems design, programming, circuit theory, computer design, and software engineering. And if you’re already familiar with these topics, your skills will be broadened and strengthened.
You may contribute to the next development in communications — the smarter phone, for example. The applications are unlimited in gaming, unmanned aircraft, robotics, biomedicine, computer defense, security systems, and beyond.
Regardless of how you choose to use your degree, you’ll emerge from the program with the knowledge and skills to contribute to improving life for people all around the globe.
Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering
Students at our Prescott Campus benefit from world-class facilities dedicated solely to undergraduate students — so you won’t have to compete for lab time.
At Prescott, you’ll also have the opportunity to join the student chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), which has been recognized as the outstanding student chapter in the Phoenix Region.
Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering
Computer Engineering students at our Daytona Beach Campus benefit from a wide range of hardware and software development tools and resources that are available in our Team Software Development environments and Real-Time Systems laboratories.
Combining in-demand computer engineering skills with a focus on the future of aerospace, aviation, military advances, and commercial industries, the Computer Engineering program at ERAU is one-of-a-kind.
With an emphasis on real-time embedded systems working in concert to serve today’s most sophisticated vehicles, the program curriculum prepares students for in-demand roles after graduation. You’ll also get to take part in a real-world capstone design experience.
Computer engineering students at both Embry-Riddle residential campuses are provided access to the knowledge and expertise in a vast array of aviation and aerospace areas.
This distinction offers those graduating from this degree a clear advantage and a defined path into an industry that represents trillions of dollars globally.
Beyond projects in the curriculum, student projects are available through professional organizations like the student branches of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) or competition hosts like the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI).
The Computer Engineering program is fully accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET).
Year after year, employers return to ERAU to hire our programs’ graduates because of their technical skills and their real-world experiences. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics notes that overall employment for computer engineers is expected to grow 32 percent between 2008 and 2018. And because computer engineers have some of the highest starting salaries in the engineering field, there is no shortage of attractive opportunities.
Computer Engineering graduates are in-demand candidates for careers in the following professions and with the following industry leaders:
Now a software engineer with Cobham Avionics, Elijah Brown has written embedded software for tactical radios and automated test suites that are used on these radios. His job mainly consists of writing automated software validation and verification test suites.
My education at Embry-Riddle really helped prepare me for my work. In particular, the NASA Space Grant Program was fantastic. I got a lot of hands-on experience that I now use every day.
In the summer of 2011, while pursuing her B.S. in Computer Engineering, Whitney Loubier had an IT Architecture internship with The Boeing Company in Puget Sound, WA. There, she worked on applications for the Cloud, as well as telecommunications. During her internship, Whitney applied and interviewed for an engineering rotational program within Boeing known as the Engineering Career Foundation Program (ECFP). Soon after, she moved to Seattle to begin her career.
It takes a good amount of time to apply for each job requisition, but I promise it is worth it!”
