Bachelor of Science in Engineering

Computer Engineering

NNU’s Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering is an ABET-accredited, multidisciplinary degree dedicating two years to broad engineering fundamentals and two years to your concentration.

The computer engineering concentration integrates microelectronics with computer science to design and develop new computers and other smart systems in the Internet Of Things (IOT). Focusing on both computer hardware and software, you will work with microprocessors and embedded devices as well as create, test and debug computer programs and applications.

For this degree, you will take courses in data structures, computer architecture, microelectronics, operating systems, network and data communication, and embedded systems as well as complete a senior research project tailored toward this area of study. This coursework complements the ongoing department research projects, giving you opportunities to gain hands-on experience.

Besides access to cutting-edge research, you will have professors with years of industry experience to draw on in mentoring you and giving you hands-on training with fabrication and lab equipment. With a 15:1 student to faculty ratio, you get to know your professor and your professors really care about you, both in and out of the classroom. At the same time, you benefit from NNU’s broad liberal arts educational, spiritual and residential campus experience.
