Welcome to School of Science and Computer Engineering
Computer Engineering (CENG)

The plan in Computer Engineering leads to the bachelor of science (B.S.) degree. This engineering plan is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. and emphasizes the study of large and small computer systems for industrial, scientific and business applications. Computer hardware and software concepts, along with engineering-level mathematics, prepare students for jobs in computer-based industries as well as for admission into the graduate plan in Computer Engineering.

The culminating experience for a student in this plan is CENG 4265/CENG 4266 Senior Projects. The mission of the Computer Engineering plan is to provide students instruction in the pragmatic application of core knowledge by which they can specify, design and develop large and small computer systems for industrial and scientific purposes. There is an emphasis on microcomputer-based embedded systems. The curriculum includes specializations in software engineering and telecommunications.

The Program Educational Objectives (PEO) of the Computer Engineering program

  • As practicing engineers, shall apply core knowledge (mathematics, science and engineering) to specify, design, develop, and test computer systems, including the ability to work effectively on multidisciplinary teams and to communicate effectively to achieve objectives.
  • As practicing engineers, shall have demonstrated the capability to solve engineering problems, using modern tools and techniques, drawn from a range of technical specialties (telecommunications and networking, digital controls and real-time systems) that are consistent with the needs of our industrial constituents and the expertise of the faculty.
  • As practicing engineers, shall exercise professional and ethical responsibilities.
  • As practicing engineers, shall successfully demonstrate the mastery of higher order thinking skills including quantitative and qualitative analysis, synthesis and evaluation of information, argumentation, problem solving and creativity.
  • Serve communities, make significant contributions to society and consider the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context.
  • Participate in lifelong learning experiences in the professional community.
Scholastic Performance Requirements for Computer Engineering Undergraduates
The UHCL graduation requirements stipulate that a student must achieve an overall minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0. The Computer Engineering program imposes additional requirements for students to be accepted into, and progress through, the upper-level Computer Engineering curriculum. The courses listed below (or equivalent courses as approved by the departmental academic advisor) are considered the Lower-Level Core (LLC) for Computer Engineering and must be completed with a grade of C- or better and a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher:
  • CSCI 1320
  • CSCI 3314
  • CSCI 2315
  • PHYS 2325 and lab
  • PHYS 2326 and lab
  • MATH 2413
  • MATH 2414
  • MATH 2305 and WRIT 1301
Students may enroll in upper-level (3000-level) Computer Engineering or Computer Science courses after successfully completing the Computer Engineering LLC. Admission to upper-level status will be granted to students who successfully complete the Computer Engineering LLC courses during their freshman or sophomore years and have an overall UHCL GPA of 2.5 or higher. No LLC course may be attempted more than two times without consulting an assigned faculty adviser.
Career Opportunities
The Computer Engineering program prepares students for careers in a wide spectrum of technical positions in computing and engineering. Graduates of this program qualify for employment as Engineers, Systems Engineers, Programmers, Project Engineers, Software Engineers, Technical Staff, Design Engineers, and Managers.
