Computer Engineering

This program is offered through a partnership between the Schools of Engineering (FENG) and Computer Science (FACIN). The Undergraduate Program in Computer Engineering is intended to produce professionals to work in automation processes, combining insights related to the development and management of hardware and software projects. Such insights involve embedded systems, real-time systems, hardware and software integrated systems, distributed systems, computer networks and communication systems.

The creation and implementation of the Computer Engineering program can be justified for the increasing level of automatization and informatization in the modern society, which has paved the way for this new area of operation, called Computer Engineering in the most prestigious universities of the planet. The need for professionals capable of addressing computer demands at a lower level (hardware) dynamically, which was something that had normally been done by graduates from the Electrical Engineering program, who relied on increased awareness of the needs and trends of computational demands at a higher level (software), which was something that had normally been done by graduates from the Computer Science program, has given rise to the implementation and increasing market demand for professionals in this new area.
