Developing Solutions for Tech and Computer Industries
Design, Implement and Develop Solutions
Our graduates in Computer Engineering become hardware-software experts. You’ll use computer aided-design tools to design, implement and develop processors, hardware accelerators and associated software.
Choose Your Area of Focus
Choose from elective concentrations in areas of Embedded Systems, Artificial Intelligence, Software Design, Computer Communications, Circuit Design and VLSI, Controls and Robotics. In upper years, specialize in one or more streams to customize your career opportunities: electronic design automation, artificial intelligence (AI), embedded systems, and software.
Application for Modern Computing Systems
Study and apply algorithmic, electronic and digital design principles across all aspects of computers including their design, construction, implementation and software maintenance.
Why Computer Engineering?
The growing field of Computer Engineering helps develop systems and solutions for the technological industry, fusing hardware and software. You’ll focus on the science and tools behind designing, constructing, implementing and maintaining software and hardware components of modern computing systems in your career and studies.
As a graduate of Computer Engineering, you will be involved in circuit design and development, hardware integration, and system level design integration.
Students in the CENG program may also be interested in studying Biological Engineering, Engineering Systems and Computing, Mechanical Engineering, or select from our other majors.
Gain Valuable Experience Through Co-op
Our Computer Engineering co-op is a five-year program, with five work terms, designed to facilitate the transition of students from academic studies to a professional career improving students’ job search skills, work performance and networking abilities, and boosting resume experience.
Hear From A Computer Engineering Student
Computers always amazed me: from the evolution of their manufacturing to the logic used to program their internal circuitry. At the School of Engineering in Guelph, I was able to explore different topics related to computers - both as a system and the internal architectures! As a co-op student, I had a chance to explore a variety of career paths such as network systems, software development, robotics programming and even assisted with image processing research.
