Computer engineers work at the forefront of knowledge in one of the most innovative professional disciplines in the world. They conceive and develop the next wave of technological advances, innovations and devices.
Focus on Computer Engineering
Computer engineers “put computers in stuff” – they design the hardware and software brains in a huge variety of products (like iPhones, medical devices, cars, and airplanes). This intense, week-long summer camp will challenge you as you learn more about the computer engineering (CE) field. You will get hands-on exposure by working closely with faculty in our labson exciting projects.
Topics included in the CE Focus on the Possibilities:
- Introduction to the history and scope of computer engineering
- Basis of digital signals used in computer systems
- How computers do math and make decisions
- Learn about and use modern programmable logic devices
- Learn how computers interface with the world through sensors and actuators
- Assemble a hand-held game platform
- Learn to program the game platform to play a game using the ‘C’ programming language
- Tour a local company that manufactures computer-based equipment
