Computer Engineering Major

Engage your problem-solving skills for the common good.

Bachelor of Science (BS) in Engineering

The field of computer engineering will take you deeper into the hardware and software that runs our world.

If you enjoy solving problems, creating new things and consider yourself an independent thinker, computer engineering would be a great fit for you! As a computer engineering student at MVNU, you will not only be equipped with state-of-the-art knowledge and skills in engineering, but also a Biblical worldview.

Computer engineering is a natural path for students interested in embedded and real time systems, utilizing principles from the fields of computer science and electrical engineering to create hardware (physical components) and firmware that are used in a wide range of areas: computer system design, medical devices, communication systems, self-driving cars, consumer electronics, and many more. This major focuses on hands-on activities through extensive use of laboratory sessions and in-class exercises, and students get to work on actual hardware and industry tools, and not just simulations.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics1, about 4,500 openings for computer hardware engineers are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Based on their data, the projected growth of computer engineering jobs is expected to be 2% by 2029. Thus, the job outlook for future computer engineers looks stable and promising!

You can also consider mechanical or electrical engineering programs.

Need a little help with finances? We’ve got you covered. Explore scholarships, grants, and other resources to help you pay for your education.

MVNU has many endowed scholarships available for students of a wide variety of backgrounds and majors.

Ariel Corporation, a local industry leader, annually donates $25,000 in scholarships exclusively for our engineering students.

Co-Ops and Internships

Students are encouraged to participate in industrial internships (paid) during summers. Engineering faculty and the MVNU Career Services Office routinely assist students in acquiring these opportunities. Students are taken to career fairs in neighboring cities such as Columbus each year.

Typically engineering students participate in internships/co-ops starting their sophomore year. Students in the past have found opportunities with Ariel Corporation, AMG Industries, AEP, Owens Corning, THK, Tremco, and other corporations.

Students also have opportunities working on campus as math/physics or engineering tutors/graders/Teacher Assistants or lab assistants.


A Society of Automotive Engineers Baja club was organized in 2017, and welcomes all engineering students to join and participate in race car design, fabrication and competition.

Engineering students are encouraged to participate in professional societies related to their particular disciplines, such as American Society for Mechanical Engineers (ASME) or Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).


Engineering graduates typically can secure permanent job offers within a few months of graduation or even before graduation. Engineering job placement rate is close to 100% and starting salary is typically between $55K-$65K.


Find a career in the aerospace industry, amusement park design, the automotive industry, consumer product and process design, or manufacturing.


Explore power generation & distribution, electronics manufacturing, robotics design, high-power electronics, and even communications.


Get into robotics, computer systems/networks/software design, web development, and the field of data science.
