New Computer Engineering major builds creators of the future [VIDEO]

Computer engineers create the future. By bridging electrical engineering and computer science, computer engineers develop software that integrates with complex devices like robots, remote sensors, self-driving vehicles, rovers, probes, drones, spacecraft, and even the smartphones in everyone’s pockets. To achieve this, computer engineers grow their skills in both coding software and designing electronic devices, combining the two to create new and unique instruments that interact with our world and expand our understanding of everything around us.
Launching in Fall 2017, FLC’s Computer Engineering program is a new major in an established department with proven ABET-accredited programs, caring expert faculty, and top-notch facilities – all in a close, personal, small-school setting. With a hands-on emphasis, students will engage in all phases of computer engineering, from idea to reality. Here, students won’t just study engineering – they’ll do it: Design. Build. Test. And by graduation, they’ll have the technical skills, real-world experience, and global awareness to adapt to an ever-evolving industry and world.
