Much of the technologies we use today have software and hardware components that interact with each other. Wireless and noise-canceling headphones, “smart” watches, and vehicles with an onboard computer and multimedia are just a few examples. All these “computer electronic systems” are developed by teams of Computer Engineering professionals. The course trains, since 1998, qualified professionals to plan, design, develop, implement and manage computer electronic systems in their most varied possibilities: from electronic equipment in general, communication and telecommunications systems, secure transmission of information with encryption or even, control systems of a group of collaborative robots.

The student who graduated from the course is qualified to handle tasks in areas where knowledge of electronics and computing are essential and complementary. Throughout the course, the student forms an excellent theoretical foundation in mathematics, physics, and the fundamentals of computer and electrical engineering. The course presents a comprehensive view of several subareas of the latter two, encompassing computer organization and architecture, circuits, electronics, microprocessors, energy conversion, microelectronics, instrumentation, and process control,  in addition to logic, programming, operating systems, computer networks, distributed systems, compilers, software engineering, artificial intelligence, computer graphics, image  processing, and robotics, among others. It is not necessary to know computing before entering the course – everything is seen from the beginning – although familiarity with computers helps. Note  that this is not just a course on using systems, you will learn to build systems that have software-hardware integration.

The current market is broad and there is a high demand for good  professionals. It encompasses industries where computer electronic systems are present, including public and private institutions, research centers, and graduate studies. Several of our graduates  work in large technology companies, such as ARM, BMW, Intel, Mercedes Benz, NVIDIA, and Siemens, among others. You can also develop your own company as a technology entrepreneur.
