Description: Computer engineering is a fast-changing discipline concerned with the design and analysis of computer systems applied to the solution of practical problems. It encompasses both computer hardware and software design in applications ranging from telecommunications and information systems (such as the Internet or telephone networks) to instrumentation and robotics.

Computer Engineering at Memorial includes a mandatory, integrated co-operative education program in which students gain up to two years of practical work experience. Students will take courses in computer hardware, software and communications systems and learn about circuit analysis, systems and signals, digital logic design, electronics, software design and implementation, computer architecture and microprocessors, computer networking, concurrent programming and real-time operating systems. Students participate in design projects throughout the program, including a team capstone design project in their final year that may span computer and electrical engineering and involve students from both majors.
