B.S.Cp.E. in Computer Engineering
Study and apply electronics, hardware and software engineering to produce computing devices for products in every-day life
In the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering program at Ole Miss, students learn to understand, design, and develop computing devices and systems.
In addition to providing small, upper-level electrical and computer engineering classes, the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering program curriculum at Ole Miss allows students to receive hands-on experience with new technologies.
With a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering degree from Ole Miss in hand, graduates are able to work in industries such as electronic chip design/production, hardware/software services, and those requiring electrical and computer engineers, such as automotive, aerospace, defense, utilities, and heavy-machinery. Emerging technology includes Internet of things (IoT) devices, self-driving automobiles, 5G wireless and artificial intelligence (AI) applications.
Summer internships are available for Ole Miss students with companies located in Mississippi and surrounding states. These positions offer valuable experience and may lead to careers upon graduation.
B.S.Cp.E. in Computer Engineering Faculty
Members of the electrical engineering faculty as well as members of the Ole Miss computer science faculty teach within the computer engineering program. These faculty mentor students inside and outside of the classroom to provide academic and career advice. In addition to industrial or research laboratory experience, two Ole Miss faculty members are fellows of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and one has even been recognized as a Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering.
The following courses are required: Math 261-264 and Math 353; laboratory sciences to be fulfilled by Chem 105, 115 and Phys 211, 212, 221, 222; Writ 100/101 and Writ 102/Liba 102. Students must also complete at least 18 semester hours of: 3 hours in humanities; 3 hours in fine arts; 3 hours in social science chosen from anthropology, economics, political science, psychology, and sociology; Econ 310; 3 hours of humanities or fine arts; and 3 additional hours of humanities, fine arts, or general education. Specific requirements for the B.S.Cp.E. program include Math 301; Csci 256, 356, 423, 433; Engr 310, 360, 361; El E 100, 235, 236, 237, 331, 351, 352, 353, 367, 385, 386, 425, 485, 486; Cp E 431, 461, 462; and 18 hours of technical elective courses.
Freshmen may directly enroll in B.S.Cp.E. with an ACT Math score of at least 24 (or SAT equiv) or 3.2 high school core GPA. Students transferring to the program from other majors or other institutions must have 2.25 cumulative GPA as well as 24 ACT Math score or 76 ALEKS math placement score or B in MATH 125 or higher math class.
Students can participate in several organizations such as Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Engineers without Borders (EWB), Society of Women Engineers (SWE), and National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE).
