Welcome to the Computer Engineering Undergraduate Program at the University of Pittsburgh. Our ABET accredited undergraduate program has been steadily rising with respect to both enrollment and quality of students. The word is out about Pitt’s commitment to the complete education of the student, which includes theory, practical application in innovative laboratory courses, and design and entrepreneurship. Additionally, Computer Engineering students can personalize their curriculum to leverage a wide range of topics and also take advantage of options for integration with industry experience, international experiences, multidisciplinary learning, and graduate-level research opportunities.
The Pitt Computer Engineering Program has truly become an international destination. While we retain at our heart a core of students from Western Pennsylvania and the larger tri-state region including Ohio and West Virginia, the reach of the program has extended to the entire US, South America, Europe, and Asia. Our undergraduate students continue to be recognized as a growing part of the Pitt University Honors College as well as achieving national awards such as prestigious Goldwater Scholarships.
Students have the opportunity to focus in a variety of exciting areas such as big data science, the Internet of things, and security while also potentially building innovative curriculum connections with areas ranging from biology and mechanical engineering to environmental preservation and the arts. Our program boasts an extremely high professional placement rate. Our students are well qualified for positions requiring degrees in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or computer science. Our co-operative education program, which includes three semesters of work experience with industry partners, complemented by our successful internship program, further contribute to these high student placement rates. Students are also well prepared to continue study in graduate schools. We place students in some of the highest ranked schools in the country such as MIT, UC Berkeley, and Stanford, among others, and in a variety of disciplines including Computing, Biology, Robotics, Business, and many others.
