Computer engineering at Texas A&M is an interdisciplinary program administered jointly by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. This interdisciplinary program approaches both computer hardware and software from an engineering perspective.

As a student in computer engineering, you'll choose between two tracks, electrical engineering and computer science:

  • The electrical engineering track emphasizes digital very large scale integrated (VLSI) circuits and systems, microprocessor interfacing and systems design, and computer system architecture and design. It covers most of the core requirements of an electrical engineering degree, but emphasizes computing.
  • The computer science track focuses on computer networks, computer architecture, artificial intelligence, computer graphics, robotics, real-time computing, computer languages, microcomputers, VLSI, and large-scale hardware and software systems. It covers most requirements of a computer science degree, but prepares you for registration as a professional engineer.

Programme Structure

Students in both tracks get a strong foundation in mathematics, physics and chemistry. They also take courses in electrical circuits, electronics, digital circuits, computer architecture ranging from microcomputers to mainframes, interfacing, microcomputer systems, programming languages, data structures, analysis of algorithms, operating systems, and software engineering.
