The Citadel, through The Graduate College, offers an undergraduate Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Computer Engineering. This program is offered in cooperation with South Carolina technical schools where the student completes the first two years of study. Students may also attend an accredited college or university. The junior and senior years of study are completed at The Citadel by attending evening classes. The program is designed and offered to enable the full time student to complete the upper two years of the program and receive a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering within two academic years and two summers.
Program Educational Objectives
Succeed in the practice of Computer Engineering, by ethically and judiciously applying engineering methods to solve problems facing a technologically complex society.
Sustain awareness of engineering-related issues through employment, professional development, professional registration, or graduate education.
Be principled leaders with strong communications and team-building skills.
The Citadel’s Electrical and Computer Engineering programs includes assessment to demonstrate that students obtain an ability to:
identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
communicate effectively with a range of audiences
recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
Complete the designated courses at an accredited or equivalent with a grade of C or higher.
