Degrees & Concentrations

Computer Engineering

LSSU’s Computer Engineering program has been designed to put you in the high-demand computer market with the potential for good career growth. The program blends practical computer science courses in computer organization, databases, operating systems, and networks with traditionally hands on electrical engineering courses in digital circuits, digital system, embedded microprocessor systems, computer programming, and digital signal processing. This combination gives you a broad-based education that ties software to hardware and theory to application.

Some of the program highlights are:

  • The program provides an excellent mix of theory and practical laboratory experiences, preparing you to solve real-world problems.
  • For your senior year experience, choose from opportunities in cooperative education, industry-based projects or research projects.
  • Engineering courses begin in your freshman year.
  • Opportunities exist for you to work with faculty on current undergraduate research projects.
  • You will study assembly language programming, computer architecture, embedded microprocessor systems hardware and software, databases, Rapid Application Development (RAD) tools,
    digital signals and systems, and networking.
  • Elective programming courses in robotics, “C” and industrial systems are available.

Ever wonder what your fellow students are up to during the summer?

Here is an update we received from Kerry Pierce. Kerry is a Computer Engineering student from Northville, Michigan. She's going into her senior year, Kerry will be having fun in senior projects this year!

"I started out the summer doing a lot of travelling throughout the "tourist traps" of Michigan, from a trip to Mackinac Island to an adventure in Presque Isle at a friend's cottage. Been to a lot of lighthouses, including the nearby Whitefish Point and Point Iroquois stations. Just last week, I also decided to start my life as a real-life "superhero" called Intrepid, and I've been doing a whole lot of volunteer work since. I've gone out picking up litter on the city streets in full costume, assisted a gentleman with his computer, and helped a woman move into her new house. I'll be attending a superhero pancake breakfast at the end of August to support the Diane Peppler Center and to inspire the children of the community. My caped escapades have only just begun, as I have year round plans on how to help our campus, our city and its residents!"

How cool is she?! Enjoy the last of the summer, I hope you're having as much fun as Kerry is!!
