Computer Engineering

This division focuses on the theoretical and applied research by which next generation, high-performance computing and communications systems are designed, developed, and exploited.

Research fields include:

  • high-performance computer architectures and networks
  • parallel and distributed computing
  • fault-tolerant computing
  • real-time systems
  • intelligent systems
  • microprocessor-based systems
  • performance analysis

At the University of Florida, the undergraduate CpE program is jointly administered by the Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

More detailed information about the Computer Engineering major (CpE) is available at the CpE website.
