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.
Did you know?
100 percent of K-State computer engineering graduates find jobs or choose to continue their education within six months of graduation.
What classes will I take in computer engineering?
The hands-on, laboratory-based approach to our curriculum ensures students are well-versed in project development and problem solving.
Coursework is required in the following areas:
- Architecture and design
This area focuses on design of hardware for computer systems — from a system-level perspective, to an individual device or component level.
- Embedded systems
This area focuses on processor-based stand-alone computing systems with dedicated functionality in applications such as appliances, automobiles, and handheld or wearable devices.
This coursework forms the basis of knowledge and protocols used to enable networked communications among all devices and systems across the world.
Further your education
What can I do with a degree in computer engineering?
Computer engineers have wide flexibility in their career options with the ability to do both hardware and software design interchangeably. Computer engineering graduates pursue careers as:
The Career Center offers an extensive career library, free assessments for exploring major/careers, job search training, career advising, employer connections, and a staff dedicated to assisting students in the career development process
