The computer engineering degree provides the educational background for engineers to pursue a career in the integrated hardware and software design development cycle for a variety of industries. Computer engineering is an academic discipline that blends electrical and electronic engineering with computer science. Computer engineers build systems with embedded programmable devices such as microprocessors as well as general-purpose programmable logic components (such as FPGA field-programmable gate arrays). Systems requiring computer control include a wide variety from medical (for example CAT Computer-Aided Tomography systems) to automotive (adaptive cruise control as well as completely autonomous vehicles).
Computer engineers require competency in both hardware as well as software to facilitate designing, programming and construction of these computer-based systems. The computer engineering curriculum at Arkansas Tech provides a solid background in a full spectrum of the knowledge and skills required to become a successful computer engineer.
