"In 2011, U.S. News and World Report ranked CpE programs at UCF as 54th out of 139 schools nationally."

The Computer Engineering (CpE) advances humankind by improving the underlying digital hardware, computing networks, and production software systems that impact our everyday lives. As an Engineering discipline, it focuses on the tradeoff of Execution Throughput versus Hardware/Software/Energy costs of all types of computers from portable embedded devices and miniature sensor nodes, up through supercomputers. Opportunities in the CpE field range from careers in computer systems design, mobile and embedded computing devices, sensor networks, reconfigurable logic, software engineering, and machine intelligence applications.

The undergraduate Computer Engineering (CpE) program for the Bachelor of Science degree is offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UCF.

The Undergraduate Catalog is the official source of degree requirements for all undergraduate programs based upon the year you are accepted to UCF.

Computer Engineering STUDENTS at UCF HAVE MANY UNIQUE ADVANTAGES:
While licensure or certification may be available in this field of study, our program does not directly lead to such licensure or certification upon graduation. The professional preparation you receive in our program meets the educational requirements for licensure as a Professional Engineer and may still assist you in such pursuits; however, the licensing authority and requirements for Professional Engineers falls under the jurisdiction of the licensing board for the state, territory, or foreign entity in which an engineer practices. If you intend to pursue such credentialing in your state or elsewhere, we strongly advise you to contact the applicable state credentialing authority to familiarize yourself with its specific requirements. Alternatively, you are welcome to contact Dr. Parveen Wahid at Parvin.Wahid@ucf.edu or Ms. Charlese Hilton-Brown at Charlese.Hilton-Brown@ucf.edu with questions in this regard and we will do our best to assist you in your career planning.
