Computer Engineering

A Merging of Disciplines

Computer engineers must master the fundamentals of both electrical engineering and computer science—from the basic concepts of current, voltage and power; to an understanding of binary arithmetic and sequential logic; to the use of software packages such as MATLAB. Wentworth’s Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering program will provide you with the broad range of hardware- and software-related skills necessary for success as a computer engineer.

Engineering Success

You’ll learn how to build, analyze, design and evaluate computer systems, including computer networks and digital circuits. Courses in this program include logic design, computer organization and architecture, embedded computer systems, engineering design, operating systems, computer networks, digital signal processing, software engineering, database systems, circuits and electronics.

Wentworth’s computer engineering program encompasses a project-based course of study and a learning environment that stresses laboratory exercises and teamwork. As a result, you’ll graduate well prepared to excel in graduate school or as a professional computer engineer.


The Computer Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Learn more about Computer Engineering at Wentworth.
