Computer Engineering Program

The Computer Engineering Program gives students an opportunity to work with some of the top researchers in the country and to participate in new research initiatives.   The Program is jointly administered by the Departments of Electrical & Computer Engineering and Computer Science in the School of Engineering at the University of Virginia.  

Offering both undergraduate and graduate education,  a student in Computer Engineering can choose to study with any faculty in the School of Engineering.  Current students are working on research with faculty in the departments of Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Systems Engineering, The Program allows faculty from each of the departments to collaborate with one another and to co-advise students in areas which cross traditional curricular lines.
