Computer & Electronics Engineering

Welcome to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Computer & Electronics Engineering, located in The Peter Kiewit Institute in Omaha, Nebraska.


In the Department of Computer & Electronics Engineering, our primary goal is the successful education and personal growth of all our students. Our department features a freshman retention program designed to maximize the likelihood of success for our students.

Ours is the only program in the country where all freshman students are divided into small groups known as "pods," which meet regularly with a senior student in CEEN. Each senior pod leader provides ongoing guidance to assist our students in making a successful transition to college. We also have class tutors who can answer technical questions. Our Counseling Assistant "CA" serves as our coordinator and is responsible for the well-being of all our freshman students.

CEENBoTs for Every Student

Students entering our program will be further stimulated by an innovative hands-on educational robot called the CEENBoT, beginning with the first course in the program. The educational robot platform was designed by CEEN senior students and incorporates a number of innovative design concepts unique to our program. The CEENBoT is used by our students throughout their program of study and with each course, their robot is augmented.

Nebraska Robotics Expo features CEENBoTs and LEGO League

On a cold Saturday in February, heated competition filled Ashland’s Strategic Air & Space Museum as SASM hosted the Fifth Annual Nebraska Robotics Expo. More than 1,000 K-12 Nebraska students, team leaders and math and science teachers gathered for the event with two robotics events under one roof: the CEENBoT Robotics Showcase and the FIRST LEGO League (FLL). 

The Nebraska Robotics Expo encourages student involvement with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) as well as educates and engages a new generation of innovators, their families and the general public about STEM opportunities in Nebraska. 

“The expo is the result of a collaboration of leaders within the University of Nebraska system,” said Alisa Gilmore, coordinator and CEEN senior lecturer. “It includes leadership by faculty and staff of the University of Nebraska at Omaha College of Education, faculty and staff within the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Computer and Electronics Engineering, and faculty and staff of the UNL 4-H Extension."
