About

The Computer Engineering degree at the University of South Carolina is for students interested in both programming and hardware. The required classes cover software engineering, computer science, and electric and digital circuit designs.

Overview

Why Computer Engineering?

The Computer Engineering Bachelor of Science at the University of South Carolina will provide you with all the training and knowledge needed to start a successful career in computer engineering. Our curriculum emphasizes project-based learning. Small team projects are required in most classes. These culminate in the two-semester Capstone project class where students form teams and meet with a client, gather requirements, design, implement, test and deploy a software or hardware project.

The computer engineering degree requires several classes in analog and digital circuits in addition to the core computer science classes. The degree provides students with a deeper knowledge of how computers work, thus it is for students interested in either developing computing hardware or software that communicates directly with the hardware, such as VLSI, embedded systems, device drivers, real-time operating systems, robotics and others.
