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

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. Thus, fundamental computing components and the theory underlying their operation are emphasized, and then reinforced through laboratory design projects. This degree program prepares graduates for successful, profitable, and lifelong careers in computer systems design, mobile and embedded computing devices, sensor networks, reconfigurable logic, software engineering, and machine intelligence applications.

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