‘Computer engineers study and build the most general machine ever devised, a device that combines language and physics to do anything that can be done. Self-driving cars, robotics, mobile devices, e-commerce, wireless communications, the Internet of Things and other advances are all built by Computer Engineers.

We start by teaching the core concepts in computer hardware and software that you will use to design and implement solutions to the ever-increasing range of engineering challenges.

As a Computer Engineering student, you will gain deep knowledge about hardware and software design, as well be uniquely qualified to work on computer systems. You will take courses in computation, system design and other specialized areas, including robotics and virtual reality. This theoretical knowledge is balanced with hands-on experience. Lassonde Computer Engineering students have access to our state-of-the-art facilities – Digital Systems Lab and Robotics Lab.
