Union College's Computer Engineering (CpE) major will provide you with a solid core of knowledge, set within the framework of a top-notch liberal arts education. Ours is a balanced program that integrates aspects of both Computer Science and Electrical Engineering.

You will study hardware and software design principles and take courses in digital design, operating systems, network protocols, embedded systems and robotics. This understanding of both software and hardware will allow you to view design and development as two intimately linked parts of one activity.

As the field continues to grow exponentially, the opportunities for computer engineers grow accordingly. We prepare students for immediate professional employment, graduate study and entry into related professions such as medicine, law and business administration.

Through our study abroad programs, our emphasis on undergraduate research and the personal attention that we give to each student, we educate well-rounded members of society who are poised to excel in an increasingly multicultural and technological world.

Union also offers a 5-year combined B.S. in Computer Engineering and M.S. in electrical engineering in conjunction with Union Graduate College.

The Computer Engineering program is offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, with significant parts of the curriculum supported by the Department of Computer Science. The Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Commission of ABET.
