Computer Engineering

What is Computer Engineering?

The Computer Engineering degree (B.S.) is an interdisciplinary major offered jointly by the Computer Science & Engineering and Physics & Engineering departments.


Students learn how to apply engineering principles to computer technology and integrate them into hands-on projects. Students also learn how to program software onto computer hardware.


The Computer Engineering program at Taylor has undertaken the extensive review process required for ABET accreditationABET (The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology – is the nationally recognized body for accrediting college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology. This award represents a significant achievement and mark of distinction for Taylor University graduates from this program.

What can I do with Computer Engineering?

Computer engineers engage in life-long learning by applying and adapting their knowledge in a constantly changing field.


The major prepares students for employment and/or graduate programs involving robotics, biomedical implants, telecommunications, data acquisition systems, and other complex hardware-software systems.
