The Computer Engineering Program is offered jointly by the Computer Science Department and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in the College of Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
The Computer Engineering major’s objective is to educate broadly based engineers with an understanding of digital electronics, computer architecture, system software and integrated circuit design. These topics bridge traditional electrical engineering and computer science curricula. The Computer Engineering degree program is conducted jointly with faculty from the Computer Science and Electrical & Computer Engineering Departments.
Computer engineers emerging from this program will be able to design and build integrated digital hardware and software systems in a wide range of applications areas. Computer engineers will seldom work alone and thus teamwork and project management skills are emphasized.

Students in CE must fulfill general education (College and UCSB) University and CE degree requirements. Milestones for the curriculum and the student experience are listed in the CE Timeline.
During the junior year students select two sequence topics each of which have two to three courses. These courses help satisfy CE Major Degree Requirements in the Senior Elective Study Plan.
During the senior year, each CE student is required to take the two qtr Senior Computer Systems Project course. Students work in teams and use, design and engineer hardware and software systems.
