According to the curriculum guideline of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers) Computer Society, Computer Engineering at California State University Long Beach is a field that encompasses both computer science and electrical engineering. 


Computer Engineering at California State University Long Beach is 'the discipline that embodies the science and technology of design, construction, implementation, and maintenance of software and hardware components of modern computing systems and computer-controlled equipment.'. At CSULB, the computer engineering program emphasizes the design, implementation and application of digital and embedded systems. Graduating students will be able to take an idea from conception to design and implementation (including circuit design and programming) and then testing, prototyping and demonstrating a working solution. CSULB offers a hands-on program where students are presented the opportunity to experience the complete cycle from conception to working systems.

After graduation and engaging in the profession of Computer Engineering for a few years, our graduates will have:

  • become a part of California's high technology workforce, and made significant contributions to Computer Engineering through the research, design and development of a wide range of embedded systems and system-on-chip applications.
  • helped further the state's economic growth by developing innovative ideas, and translating them into commercial products that benefit society.
  • functioned effectively as team members and/or leaders in multidisciplinary and multicultural environments.
  • recognized the societal and global context of their work and understood professional and ethical responsibilities.
  • continued the pursuit of lifelong learning through such activities as graduate school, distance education, professional training and membership in professional societies and been able to adapt to new engineering tools.
