Curriculum for BS in Computer Engineering
Example pathway through the CompE curriculum
We've shared below just four of many, many choices for Social World Electives.
AT = Arts; HS = Historical Studies; SB = Social and Behavioral Science; I = Interdisciplinary Studies; DG = Global Diversity; DU = U.S. Diversity.
We also included a sampling of CompE or Life Science electives that are approved. You may also propose something not yet approved and have it reviewed.
You will need to consult your academic advisor each semester to ensure you remain on track.
Visit the Registration page for the latest information from the department.
Current students can access official curriculum flowsheet PDFs off of the Curriculum landing page.
