# Computer Engineering Major

## Overview

The major in computer engineering builds on foundations in physics, mathematics, computer science and basic electrical engineering principles. You will specialise in advanced computer systems, computer networking, and software engineering. A wide range of computer-oriented electives are also available, including studies in artificial intelligence and integrated circuit design. Computer-based tutorials are a feature of the course.

This major best aligns with the Electrical stream.
