UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES


The Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy operate on both the Oxford and Jackson campuses. The Schools of Dentistry, Health Related Professionals and Medicine, and the Health Sciences Graduate School, are based in Jackson only. (Additional healthcare programs are available through the School of Applied Sciences on the Oxford campus.) Other than these exceptions, the schools above are on the Oxford campus.

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.

Key Benefits

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.

Graduate Outcomes

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.

Experiences Offered

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.
