Welcome to UCSB Computer Engineering

Computer Engineering continues to be one of the most marketable degrees and with some of the best salaries.

In fact, Computer Engineers are in the best position to help solve some of our societies most pressing problems by designing novel systems with emerging technologies.

The Computer Engineering Program at UCSB starts with a foundation of hardware and software fundamentals and extends that foundation with advanced elective sequences. Students then bring all this knowledge together in a capstone sequence that culminates in a Capstone Presentation Day.

Our website was created with the student in mind. We wanted prospective students to have access to questions such as "Why CE and UCSB?" and a Frosh-to-Senior Year Timeline and our current students to have better access to advising information, and CE's curriculum including the 4-year-plan, senior sequence courses, and Sr. year capstone project.

We’re sure you will find what you need on our website. If you don't, feel free to call us at 805/893-5615 or email us at info@ce.ucsb.edu.

We look forward to the 2014-2015 academic year — Fred Chong, Director, CE Program
