Computer Engineering

(20-22 semester hours)

For information, contact the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, 260 Garland Hall (513-529-0741).

The objective of this minor is to provide the student with a broad introduction to computer engineering with an emphasis on computer-based solutions to engineering problems. The minor combines a strong base in science, math, computer science, engineering science, and design. After completing this minor, students will be able to design and build computer-based digital electronic systems.

A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 is required for all courses in the minor. A minimum of 20 semester hours beyond the prerequisite courses in math and physics are required. None of these courses may be taken on a credit/no credit basis.
