Overview

From autonomous vehicles to smart cities, we live in a hyper-connected world. A degree in Computer Engineering from CSU will allow you to have an impact well beyond your computer screen. As devices and systems become “smarter” and more connected through the Internet of Things (IoT), computer engineers hold the key to understanding, advancing, and protecting the security of next generation technologies. 

Have an interest in robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, or data science management and optimization? With computer engineering at the heart of these disciplines, our professors will prepare you to make an impact in these and other emerging fields.

Career Opportunities

A field of endless possibilities, career paths for computer engineers are largely dependent on personal interests. 

Alumni of the Computer Engineering degree from Colorado State University hold positions such as software engineer for a tech giant, designer for a start-up company, and program manager for NASA. 

In addition to being one of the most lucrative college majors, Computer Engineering currently ranks among the top 10 majors in demand for bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers.
