The main objective of the computer engineering program is to produce graduates who will be able to design and program the next generation of computer and embedded systems.
The program seeks to prepare graduate who will be able to Capitol College seeks to prepare graduates who demonstrate four characteristics:
Employability: The ability to enter into the field of computer engineering fully prepared with a theoretical background and practical background with all the necessary tools to be immediately employed.
Communications: Have complete mastery of traditional and technological techniques of communication.
Preparation of the Mind: The broad intellectual grounding in science and technology as well as general subjects required to embrace future technical and managerial opportunities within the computer field.
Professionalism: Commitment to life-long learning, ethical practice and participation in professional societies.
