        Computer Engineering, B.S. 4-year sequences:


The Computer and Electrical Engineering program at UW-Stout is ideally suited to meet the needs of regional and national industries by providing computer engineers with a strong background in both electrical engineering and computer science. Graduates of this program are equipped to work with both hardware and software aspects of computer systems.

Demand for computer engineers is strong, as computer systems of all sizes - from computer chips in cellular telephones to computer-controlled equipment in large manufacturing environments - are ubiquitous in present-day society.

UW-Stout’s Computer and Electrical Engineering program is a calculus-based program which progresses from solid foundations in mathematics and science through analysis and design. The program includes a strong emphasis on laboratory activities and student engineering design projects, with a particular focus on the design of hardware and software for engineering systems that utilize embedded digital processors such as microprocessors, microcontrollers, digital signal processors and personal computers.
