Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering

Computer engineers play an integral role in the design and maintenance of large systems that require sophisticated control, including aircraft, automobiles, medical instrumentation, telecommunication systems, and factory automation.

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering program at Lawrence Technological University combines the best of electrical engineering and computer science. You will learn the fundamentals of circuits, systems, and software associated with the design of programmable systems used for general purpose computing, communications, control, or signal processing.

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering program at Lawrence Tech combines academic excellence with a wealth of practical experience. Co-op programs and industry-sponsored projects offer valuable contacts with leading companies and enable you to combine paid on-the-job experience with your studies. You can also participate in the Lear Entrepreneurial Program, which focuses on what it takes to create, promote, and market products and services. Another great opportunity is the Global Engineering program, which arranges for you to work and study abroad – an especially valuable experience in preparing you to compete in a global economy.

The small classes at Lawrence Tech allow you to actually get to know your professors. The depth and breadth of their experience was really surprising and beneficial.” Sarah Witting, BSCE’06, MSECE’07, Engineer, Nissan Technical Center
