The Computer Engineering program of Northwestern University is accredited by the Engineering Commission of ABET, our curriculum trains students to think independently, to master the systematic approach to problem solving, and to have a keen awareness of the role engineering plays in a modern technological society.
The computer engineering major is an ideal match for students who are interested in computer hardware, integrating hardware and software, or developing software tools. The curriculum has a strong lab-based learning emphasis and culminates in a project-based design capstone course.
Graduates of the computer engineering major have broad professional employment opportunities in many areas, including design and management; microchips and computers; application-specific hardware and software systems; and computer-aided design tools for digital, aerospace, defense, and networked systems.
Some of our graduates seek advanced degrees at top graduate programs, and many go on to work at some of the largest tech companies in the world, including Amazon, Boeing, Google, IBM, and Intel.
