Computer Engineering

SVSU We Block


SVSU's undergraduate program in Computer Engineering provides students with a strong practical and theoretical background in both the hardware and the software aspects of computer-based systems, along with the engineering analysis, design, and implementation skills necessary to work between the two. Course work integrated into the curriculum include digital systems, computer organization and architecture, processor interfacing techniques, VLSI, advanced electronics, and embedded system design. Students have the opportunity to apply their design and analysis knowledge through faculty-mentored, hands-on undergraduate research projects with industry partners.

Cardinal Points

  • No teaching assistants at SVSU. Our Engineering and Computer Science faculty members work directly with students to help them achieve their goals.

  • The program's curriculum is noted for its hands-on lab and design experiences, which culminates into a major design experience.


  • Students engage in research projects with faculty and have published peer-reviewed articles at conferences and in journals.

SVSU's computer engineering program bridges electrical and computer engineering, preparing students for real-world engineering design and entrepreneurship opportunities. The program offers students a general education in engineering, physical sciences, and mathematics, along with intensive study in computer science that blends electrical engineering perspectives to deliver a research-driven and highly effective program. As with all of SVSU's engineering programs, the computer engineering curriculum is noted for the hands-on lab and design experiences that are integrated throughout the curriculum and culminates in an industry-partnered senior project experience. This capstone design project incorporates all aspects of the design process, from project planning, feasibility studies and technical report writing to prototype construction and project documentation.
