Computer, Electrical, and Software Engineering

ABET Engineering logoShippensburg University’s Department of Computer, Electrical, and Software Engineering offers three distinct Bachelor of Science programs.

Our Computer Engineering and Software Engineering programs are accredited by ABET, Inc. Our Software Engineering program is one of only 26 accredited programs in the nation.

Ship is the only state university in Pennsylvania to offer degrees in: Civil Engineering (BS), Computer Engineering (BS), Electrical Engineering (BS), Mechanical Engineering (BS) and Software Engineering (BS).


 

Computer Engineering

Computer engineers are actively involved in the development of the next generation of computers, smartphones, and tables. They are also involved in the development of computer systems for medical, automotive and industrial automation systems.

Electrical Engineering

Students in this program will learn about the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and social context. Graduates will have an ability to use techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice, and will engage in life-long learning to continue developing their skills and knowledge of the practice.

Electrical Engineering


Software Engineering

Software engineers develop software applications while focusing on delivering quality software that meets the customers’ needs. In addition to developing software applications, software engineers select and track the processes that will be used throughout the development of an application.
