Computer engineers draw upon mathematics, science and computer science to design computer or microprocessor controlled devices, systems and processes. Examples include many electronic consumer products such as cell phones, personal computers, DVD recorders/players and satellite radios. In addition, computer engineers are involved in the design of computer hardware - from large-scale memory arrays and parallel-processing mainframes to small-scale processors and high-speed data buses. At York College, one of the best colleges for computer engineering, we focus on embedded systems, which are customized, standalone systems under computer/microprocessor control performing a specific function.
Engineering Co-operative work experience is a requirement for all engineering students. Through this program you will have the opportunity to gain practical hands-on experience with paid professional engineering work in industry. Learn more about our Co-op program.
The Computer Engineering major at York College is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) awarded a $3500 one-time grant, The Doris Cohen Grant, to honor the memory of member Doris Cohen. Doris received her MBA from York College, but more importantly, she was Met Ed's first woman engineer at the time she was hired. The grant is given to a female student entering her junior or senior year of the 2014 fall semester at York College who is majoring in mechanical engineering or computer electronics. We are pleased to announce that Kelly Powell, electrical engineering senior, has been chosen to receive this generous grant.
