Bachelor of Science

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University offers Bachelor of Science degree option to its undergraduate students desiring to major in Computer Engineering.

The Computer engineering track encompasses nearly all of the core material of the electrical engineering degree but provides much more depth in computing than is possible within the context of an electrical engineering degree. Stronger emphasis is placed on digital Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI) circuits and systems, microprocessor interfacing and system design, computer system architecture, hardware-software interaction and embedded systems. Students studying computer engineering can readily apply their knowledge to the design of digital circuits and software in various areas, including cell phones, computers, computer networks, computer vision, pattern recognition and embedded systems.

We are continuously ranked in the top 15 in the nation by US News and World Report. We have over 70 tenured/tenure track faculty and over 900 undergraduate students. The opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in research projects, study abroad programs and the ability to pursue a master's degree while earning their baccalaureate make joining our undergraduate program an excellent choice!
