Hands-on learning. State-of-the-art computing.

In combination with the your classroom concepts, you'll experience hands-on practice in state-of-the-art computing labs — microfabrication lab, optical information processing lab, photonics lab, signal processing lab, systems and control lab, communications networks lab, advanced digital design lab, opto-electronics devices lab, HAM-radio lab, ultraviolet laser lithography lab, and computational electromagnetic lab.

Integrate hardware and software in systems design.

Our curriculum draws from software courses taken in computer science and hardware courses taken from electrical and computer engineering, culminating in the integration of hardware and software in systems design.  An extensive laboratory experience is integrated with the classroom work to ensure that the student develops a working knowledge of the fundamentals.  Upper level courses integrate the knowledge base with current technology and computational tools resulting in a professional graduate prepared to make contributions to the engineering profession by either entering the work force or pursuing a graduate education.

Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering

Our computer engineering program focuses on digital electronics and digital system design and the design development analysis and application of hardware and software for computing systems.

Bachelor's Plus Master's Program

We are proud to introduce our Bachelor's Plus Master's program that attracts and retains top-notch students making it possible to complete the master's degree in as little time as one additional academic year.

Cooperative Education and Service-Learning

Through internships, co-ops, study abroad and service opportunities, you can expand your learning to reality and gain invaluable experience in your field.  About one-half of our students participate in our Cooperative Education working with companies such as AO Smith, Honda, Toyota, Fujitec, Battelle, YSI, LexisNexis and Naval Research Laboratories. And, many of our students benefit from our service-learning program — ETHOS.


15:1 student/teacher ratio — experience one-on-one assistance with transitioning, advising and growth as an engineering professional.

Work with faculty in their areas of interest — augmented with joint faculty from the electro-optics program, our electrical and computer engineering faculty are world-renowned teachers and researchers who have edited textbooks, published extensively in national and international journals and conferences, and are fellows in their respective professional organizations. Participate in extensive research opportunities with the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) — undergraduate hands-on research experience.
