BS Degree in Computer Engineering

Request Information


Computer Engineering is the application of technology in the synthesis of systems for control, computation and communication. This program focuses on the design, analysis, and application of computers and on their applications as components of systems.

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering program emphasizes problem-solving skills borne of understanding systems and their applications. Our course of study provides a thorough overview of computer engineering theory, as well as excellent training for future engineers.

This undergraduate program also builds a strong foundation for studies at the graduate level. Those who successfully complete the B.S. in Computer Engineering will be well-prepared to pursue Atlantis University’s Master of Science. There is also an option to combine both undergraduate and graduate academic paths for an expedited entry into the professional realm.



The School of Engineering offers a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering that can be attained by transferring credits earned in an information technology associate’s degree program (60 credit-hours) and completing the remaining prescribed major courses (additional 63 credit-hours) for a total of 123 semester-credit-hours.

Students may complete all 123 semester-credit-hours by combining core courses (105 semester-credit-hours) and prescribed major courses of a specific engineering concentration (18 semester-credit-hours). Students can either major in Software Engineering or Network Engineering.

Many graduates continue their education through the Masters in Computer Engineering program at Atlantis University. There is also a combined B.S./M.S. program that enables eligible undergraduates to complete both degrees sooner and more quickly enter the workforce.


What you’ll learn

Those who complete this program will have a thorough grounding in the practices of computer engineering and the scientific and mathematical principles upon which they are built. They can choose to pursue careers in industry, government, or academia.


AU graduates are equipped to become successful engineers, scientists, or educators who demonstrate strong leadership, technical prowess, and team skills. We also encourage enrollees to commit to continued professional development.


Atlantis University students have the option to obtain a certificate after the successful completion of 18 semester-credit-hours of their major concentration. Therefore, courses within concentrations can be individually taken by students wishing to complete a certificate in a particular area. The following concentrations are available: The Software and Systems Programming Concentration focuses on software systems including courses in networks, operating systems, software engineering, and advanced programming. Students pursuing this concentration are prepared for building large software systems of all types. After the successful completion of 18 credits of this concentration, students will receive a certificate.

The Networks Concentration offers students in-depth knowledge of the underlying structure and function of network and computer technology and the design processes that make those technologies function. This concentration focuses on communication between computers, network hardware, communication protocols, and algorithms. Students who complete 18 credits in this concentration are prepared for the design and analysis of wired and wireless network systems and will receive a Certificate.
