Bachelor's Degree in Computer Engineering

B.S. in computer engineering

Computer engineers design and develop the latest cutting-edge electronic- and software-based solutions to meet the demands of consumers, health care professionals, academia and defense industries.

Two engineering students work on computers in a studio classroom setting.

Hands-on learning is a hallmark of instruction for students in all engineering programs.

The K-State difference

Academic discovery and creative inquiry are crucial to student success and preparation for entering
the workforce. Numerous research opportunities in computer engineering exist such as

  • IoT applications,
  • cyber-physical systems
  • and computer networks.

The Robotics Competition Team provides a venue for creative, inventive and industrious students to participate in robotic competitions against other universities or teams.
