Drexel’s Computer Engineering undergraduate program applies principles of physics and mathematics to the design, implementation and analysis of computer and communication systems. The discipline spans topics such as the design of digital systems, computer architecture, the design of microprocessors embedded in a larger system, computer networks and computer security. Specializations include applications of computers in control systems, digital signal processing, telecommunications, power systems and very large scale integrations (VLSI) systems design.
The Computer Engineering minor is designed to provide students from other computer-intensive majors—such as computer science or other engineering majors—with a foundation of knowledge in the hardware portion of computer systems. The minor consists of a minimum of seven ECE courses resulting in 25 credits. There are four required courses and an additional 12 credits of elective courses.
