Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering

Degree Requirements

The minimum number of credits required for the Bachelor of Science with major in Computer Engineering is 123 credits. The following are requirements for the degree BS in Computer Engineering:

  1. Satisfy all admission and degree requirements of the Department and University.
  2. All courses that count toward the degree must be completed with a grade of "C" or better.
  3. Complete the specific degree requirements for Computer Engineering, which total 123 credits
  • Students entering FAU with fewer than 30 credits must satisfy the course requirements specified in the catalog section, Degree Requirements. Students entering FAU with more than 30 credits (transfer students) must see the undergraduate advisor for an evaluation of courses taken at another school. The general education requirements are normally satisfied if a student has an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree from a Florida community or state college. Once students earn beyond 30 credits, they must substitute EGN 1002, Fundamentals of Engineering, with a computer engineering elective.
  • For those students who are also pursuing a math minor, STA 4032, Probability and Statistics for Engineers, can be substituted for EEE 4541, Stochastic Processes and Random Signals.


Degree Requirements for a Second BS in Computer Engineering

  1. Earn a minimum of 30 credits in residence at FAU, at the 3000 level or higher, beyond those required for the first degree. Students earning two degrees simultaneously (a dual degree) must earn at least 150 credits.
  2. Earn at least 75 percent of all upper-division credits required for the major from FAU.
  3. Students must have completed at least 15 credits in mathematics, 9 credits in science and 60 credits in core courses listed in the Computer Engineering degree program. Each course must be completed with a minimum grade of "C."
Undergraduate Transfer Students
Prior to the academic advising session, course syllabi need to be submitted to the Undergraduate Academic Advisor for evaluation of possible transfer credits. Course descriptions can be provided by submitting an undergraduate catalog from the post-secondary institution attended, submitting course descriptions from an online catalog (requires that the post-secondary institution web address be at the bottom of each page), or providing course syllabi. The Academic Advisor evaluation needs to be performed even if a student has an evaluation by an approved agency.
