Academic Program

The Computer Engineering program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), which is a specialized accrediting board recognized by the Council on Postsecondary Accreditation (COPA) and the U.S. Department of Education.

The following Academic Program information is gathered from the UCF catalog, the Undergraduate Policies and Procedures Manual and the program procedures in ECE. This web site should not be considered a legal document, is not necessarily exhaustive and is subject to change without notice.

All UCF students must fulfill a 36-hour General Education Program (GEP) requirement. The GEP is automatically satisfied by students with a prior B.S. from an accredited institution or an A.A. degree from a Florida community college. Please consult the UCF catalog for specific details. Students must complete 128 semester hours of course work and satisfy all University and Computer Engineering program requirements to earn a B.S. in Computer Engineering.

Any student wishing to receive a BS – MS (5-year degree), to be a double-major or to seek a second Bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering (CpE) should consult the UCF catalog and the CpE coordinator, located in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. A student must be an official CpE major to earn the BS Computer Engineering degree or the BS – MS accelerated degree in CpE.

Foreign Language & Multicultural Requirement

Foreign Language Admission Requirement: In order to be admitted to the University, the State of Florida requires two years of high school foreign language (or equivalent). This is called “Foreign Language Admission Requirement”. In some cases, students who did not have two years of foreign language in high school are provisionally admitted but they must satisfy the requirement before graduation.
