Computer engineering is the engineering discipline that deals with the design and application of computer systems. These computer systems range in size from tiny embedded processors to massive database and network servers. IPFW offers a four-year computer engineering undergraduate program leading to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree.
Computer engineers have a broad technical background, covering both hardware (equipment) and software (programs).These two aspects of computer systems are inseparable: software cannot operate without hardware; without software, computer hardware can perform no useful function. In system design, it is often necessary to assign functions to hardware and software components, based on cost and performance criteria.
Our students, while drawn from diverse backgrounds, are all extremely able and committed to learning. IPFW delivers an exceptional educational experience to engineering students, encouraging collaboration and teamwork throughout the curriculum.
