Design the Technology of Tomorrow with a Computer Engineering Degree

Do you love working with computers? Have you ever taken one apart or assembled your own computer just for fun? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then you might have what it takes to become a computer engineer. A computer engineer researches, designs, and develops computer hardware, including computer chips, microprocessors, circuit boards, computer systems, and related equipment. Our Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering provides an overview of the foundational principles you need to design and build the computer hardware of tomorrow.

In this program, you will learn a combination of computer science and electrical engineering in order to focus on producing computers. You will learn not only how to build computers but how to design and conduct experiments and analyze the data from those tests.

Our goal is to develop Christ-centered men and women with the values, knowledge, and skills essential to be a positive force in computer engineering-related industries. Our professors seek to know you individually and impart the knowledge and ability they possess to identify and solve engineering problems.

Why Choose Liberty’s Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Engineering?

Liberty University aims to give you many opportunities to use the skills you learn in the classroom in real-world settings. Towards the end of your degree, you have the opportunity to complete an internship and work alongside seasoned professionals in several Fortune 500 companies and government agencies. We actually have close to 50 companies that have taken our students as interns.

ABET Accreditation Badge

Likewise, your statistical and data analyzing skills may be put to use to help support a mission. If a mission needs the help of a computer technologist, you might just be called to give service and gain immeasurable experience.

Accreditation provides value to your degree. Companies and organizations looking at your resume will know that your degree has met certain engineering industry standards. Our computer engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET*.

*ABET accredits postsecondary degree-granting programs housed within regionally accredited institutions. They accredit programs only, not degrees, departments, colleges, or institutions.

What Will You Learn in Our Computer Engineering Bachelor’s Degree Program?

In our B.S. in Computer Engineering degree, you will learn how to apply probability and statistics appropriately. In addition, you will gain knowledge of scientific and mathematical principles necessary to analyze and design complex digital systems. This knowledge will be applied to the architecture of computers and understanding the components of a computer.

We will also cover computer networks, providing you with a firm grasp on the working of networks and how it is essential in building computers. You will study other aspects of engineering such as developing a plan, budgeting, creating a conceptual design and other factors that are crucial in seeing a design through to completion.
