Effective June 8, 2022 the Computer Engineering Program has merged with the Department of Electrical Engineering to form the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). This website will no longer be updated so for current information please go to the new ECE website.
Welcome to the Computer Engineering Program (CpE) in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF).
Over the past decade, there has been a rapid increase in demand for computer engineers in various fields ranging from the area of mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.) to high-performance computing systems needed for e-prescription and electronic health record-keeping. This trend only continues to grow.
CpE is committed to providing exciting academic programs. It strives to combine the best facilities along with a driven faculty and an innovative curriculum to prepare students for the significant engineering challenges of the 21st century. The program offers an undergraduate (BS), a graduate (MS) and a 4-Year Integrated BS-MS degree in Computer Engineering.
To apply to the M.S. in Computer Engineering program, apply and pay the $70 application fee online at
Cal State Apply .
Your application will be received faster and therefore processed more quickly if you apply and pay online. Your application cannot be processed until payment has been received.
Please visit the ECS Graduate and International Admissions website for more information.
CpE’s undergraduate program is ranked #7 in the nation, among non-PhD granting institutions, according to the 2021 US News and World report
The Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET
IEEE CS (PACE)
The IEEE CS (PACE) Student Chapter is affiliated to the National IEEE and National IEEE Computer Society (CS). If you are majoring in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or Computer Science, then this society would be a great way to get involved and learn about the major.
