Electrical & Computer Engineering
What can you do as a computer engineer?
Computer engineers use a combination of science, mathematics, and engineering to develop hardware and software based systems for solving today's problems. As a computer engineering student at the University of Idaho, you might design sensor systems for NASA, simulate brain waves for facial recognition or improve intersection safety for disabled pedestrians. Computer engineering involves the application of the principles of electrical engineering and computer science for the benefit of society.
