Computer Engineering centers around embedded systems that are in the design of digital and computer systems which are part of a larger whole. Specifically, software engineering, hardware design, electronic interfacing, computer networks for distributed systems and computer architecture are all important knowledge areas in computer engineering. In the context of a graduate program which has a software engineering program and an electrical engineering program, computer engineering at Mercer offers the full range of topics listed above and fills in with courses which integrate the areas.
Conduct a software development or maintenance project throughout its entire lifecycle, including requirements analysis, object oriented design, object oriented programming, and testing, using iterative, incremental processes. Note: The MS in Software Engineering and Software Systems are offered as Distance Learning (DL) programs. Mercer University complies with applicable state and federal regulations pertaining to DL programs and enrollment in these programs depends on the state laws where the student resides.
