The computer engineering program is designed for students who are interested in computer hardware and software design and their integration into usable computer systems.


The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) of the Bethune-Cookman University Computer Engineering Program are to produce graduates who within a few years of graduation are able to combine skills gained through academic preparation and post-graduate experience to be able to:

  1. Exhibit technical competence through application of engineering knowledge, problem solving skills and engineering tools.
  2. Exhibit skills of effective communication, teamwork, leadership, professional and ethical behavior as complements to technical competence.
  3. Continue their technical and professional development which may include graduate level education, continuing education courses, self-directed study and participation in conferences and committee activities.


Following the completion of a major in computer engineering, students will demonstrate:

  1. The ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  2. The ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  3. The ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints.
  4. The ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
  5. The ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  6. The understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  7. The ability to communicate effectively.
  8. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  9. A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  10. A knowledge of contemporary issues
  11. The ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
