Computer Engineering Major

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.
