About the BS in Computer Engineering Degree

Why Study Computer Engineering at Cedarville?

Prepare yourself for a thriving career in computer engineering with Cedarville's BSCpE (Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering) degree. You'll gain the skills and knowledge needed for success in the field, benefiting from modern facilities, experienced faculty, and real-world internship experiences.

Computer engineering bridges the gap between electrical engineering (the electronic hardware) and computer science (the software). You'll learn how to embed computing into systems like cars and appliances, preparing you for diverse career opportunities. But more than just job preparation, Cedarville's distinctly Christian engineering program will challenge you to use your vocation as a ministry for Christ. By pairing your studies in computer engineering with a biblical worldview, you'll grow in your faith while achieving excellence in your skills.
