WHAT IS COMPUTER ENGINEERING?
This major is part of the Math and Engineering Exploration Group
The Computer Engineering degree encompasses a wide range of topics, including operating systems, computer architecture, computer networks, robotics, artificial intelligence, and computer-aided design. It is a program designed to meet the rapidly expanding demand for engineers with strong design skills. The three areas of focus include real-time computing systems, communication and computing networks, and VLSI design/fabrication. The skills that students acquire through the program are : digital logic design, computer architecture, software engineering, compiler design, operating systems, and algorithms. In this major, students also develop a strong base in both computer science and electrical engineering; they learn about the hardware and software aspects of computer science and gain a solid understanding of circuit theory and electronic circuits.

WHAT IS ANIMAL SCIENCE?
This major is part of the BEP Exploration Group
UConn Animal Science students work with animals and learn the basic sciences of genetics, physiology, nutrition, health and behavior. Animal Scientists work with domestic animals and their products of meat, milk, eggs and fiber, as well as the companion animals, such as horses, cats and dogs. Graduates are prepared for national certification as Professional Animal Scientists. This major provides six areas of interest leading to the B.S. degree:
- Equine Science
- Food Science
- Production Management
