The Computer Engineering Program is a joint program between the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Additional details about the joint program may be found at http://ce.tamu.edu. The joint program is administered by the two departments, corresponding to two computer engineering tracks. Details about the CSE track follows.
The computer engineering curriculum provides a balanced view of hardware, software, hardware-software tradeoffs, analysis, design and implementation techniques. It is a dynamic and broadly interdisciplinary field that continues to experience rapid professional growth that impacts every area of human endeavor. The curriculum is designed to cover the engineering aspects of both hardware and software—at a total computer systems perspective. The CSE computer engineering degree provides students the freedom to enhance their knowledge in the broad range of topics comprising computer engineering; such as, computer networks, computer architecture, artificial microcomputers, VLSI and large scale hardware and software systems. The track is primarily administered by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and encompasses nearly all of the core material of the computer science degree, with greater emphasis on design and engineering. The student is exposed to state-of-the-art computers and laboratory equipment, and both analytical techniques and technological developments.
