The Study Plan in Computer Hardware and Software Engineering, leading to a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE-CHSE), integrates the tenets of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science to provide an interdisciplinary professional career in this burgeoning area.  The BSE-CHSE program offers a relevant, stimulating, and effective course of undergraduate study to produce digital hardware, embedded systems, data communication and software engineers to meet the needs of the new century.

The BSE-CHSE pHSE1rogram emphasizes all aspects of digital hardware, embedded systems, data communication, processor architectures, computer programming and algorithm development. Professional employment includes thHSE2e analysis, design and co-development of hardware and software systems for diverse industries and applications.  The intent of the BSE-CHSE program is to provide better and more efficient embedded computer systems which will have a profound impact on the global society.

The BSE-CHSE program includes requisite and two ECE or CIS approved technical electives, which provides flexibility in the course of study and an introduction to macro and Engineering economics and management as preparation for your professional employment and graduate study. The BSE-CHSE program requires a requisite and two approved electives in business and management.
