# Computer Engineering and Computer Science, BSCompE

This intercollege dual major serves students who are interested in both computer hardware and software, combining an accredited Bachelor of Science degree in engineering with the added benefits of depth in software principles found in a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science. This program provides a well-rounded computing education that includes engineering design principles, computational thinking, proper program design, and a solid background in mathematics and science. The degree is fully accredited as a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering and adds the computer science depth.

Because of the large body of shared knowledge between computer engineering and computer science, an integrated dual major between these two disciplines is a logical course of study and can be accomplished within a student's usual five-year program (including three co-op placements) without requiring course overloading in any semester. A student graduating from this program will have a solid foundation in both computer hardware and software principles, and should be prepared for a wide range of career paths in the computing field or any related field that relies on the application of engineering or computing principles.

Students interested in this program should contact the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering or the Department of Computer and Information Science as early as possible, preferably prior to registering for freshman courses.

Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified and complete any additional courses needed beyond specific college and major requirements to satisfy graduation credit requirements.
