Computer Engineering Program Highlights

Computer engineers are key to today's and tomorrow’s technological advances. That’s why UW equips students with marketable skills and hands-on experience before graduation. Computer engineering majors are encouraged to complete projects, work with notable faculty and spend time in research labs during their education.

Access to Research Facilities

At UW, we believe hands-on experience is the best way to learn. That’s why computer engineering students are given access to these specialty facilities to develop their skills:

Computer Networks and Networking Lab
Computer Vision Lab
Distributed Computing Lab
Multi-agent systems, AI security and robotics lab

Hands-On Experience

Computer engineering students are given the opportunity to put their education to the test throughout their education. How? Labs where students use the latest technologies and make their own devices. Part-time research opportunities. And a year-long senior design course where students work with their peers to address an engineering or societal issue.
