The program curriculum prepares students for in-demand roles after graduation by emphasizing real-time embedded systems that work to serve today’s most sophisticated vehicles. Computer engineering students at both Embry-Riddle residential campuses are provided access to knowledge and expertise in a vast array of aviation and aerospace areas. This distinction offers those graduating from this degree a clear advantage and a defined path into an industry that represents trillions of dollars globally.

Year after year, employers return to ERAU to hire the program’s graduates because of their technical skills and their real-world experiences.

The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics notes that overall employment for computer engineers is expected to grow 32 percent between 2008 and 2018, and because computer engineers have some of the highest starting salaries in the engineering field, there is no shortage of attractive opportunities.

Beyond projects in the curriculum, student projects are available through professional organizations like the student branches of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) or competition hosts like the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI).

The Computer Engineering program is fully accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET).

Earning a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Embry-Riddle will introduce students to digital hardware and software systems design, programming, circuit theory, computer design, and software engineering.

The applications are unlimited in gaming, unmanned aircraft, robotics, biomedicine, computer defense, security systems, and beyond.
