- Applying their problem-solving skills and knowledge of Computer Engineering to their assigned responsibilities;
- Making valuable contributions in the engineering work force, thereby advancing in their careers;
- Successfully adapting to technical changes in their chosen fields; and,
- Succeeding in continuing education.
Students who wish to obtain a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Computer Engineering must satisfy the following requirements.
The Computer Engineering Program has two tracks: Electronic Systems track and a Communication Engineering track. Both tracks share a common core detailed below.
A grade of “C” or better is necessary for any course to be applied to the computer engineering major. Transfer students majoring in computer engineering must complete at least 18 credits in CMSC, CMPE and/or ENEE courses at UMBC. In addition, each student who wishes to earn a B.S. in Computer Engineering must meet the following two gateway requirements.
