B.S. Degree in Mechanical Engineering Icon OFFERED ON THE OMAHA CAMPUS (at PKI)

You've shown interest and an aptitude for computing. You enjoy hands-on creation of devices that maximize the possibilities of their hardware components and software capabilities. You're interested in working in telecommunications, mechatronics, control systems, or new product development. Computer Engineering sounds like the right fit for you.

Students interested in Computer Engineering have the best of both worlds: an academic program provided by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Engineering, and the program support of the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). To be admitted to the Computer Engineering program, you'll apply through the UNO Undergraduate Admission Application. You will have the unique opportunity to join the Nebraska Engineering community and enjoy the benefits of the nearby UNO campus while studying at The Peter Kiewit Institute. 

  • Learning and mentoring communities help freshmen transition into college and succeed in engineering
  • Small class sizes, allowing easy access to teaching faculty for help and advising
  • Relevant curriculum with emphasis on hands-on laboratory experience
  • Small group "pods," which meet on a regular basis with a senior student who was a former pod member. Each senior pod leader provides on-going guidance to assist in a successful transition to college.
  • Opportunities for internships and employment at the nearby Scott Technology Center and other businesses and industries in the metropolitan area. In Omaha, students readily find part-time employment opportunities.
  • Entrepreneurship opportunities through design courses, on-site technology transfer and start-up assistance

  • TekBot® and CEENBoT robotic learning platforms link classroom lectures with engineering applications
Every new student receives an innovative hands-on educational robot called the CEENBoT, which begins with the very first course in the program. The educational robot platform was designed by Computer Engineering and Electronics Engineering senior students and incorporates a number of innovative design concepts unique to our program. The CEENBoT accompanies the student throughout their program of study and with each course, their robot will be augmented.

  • State-of-the-art classrooms and building
  • Up-to-date laboratories with new furnishings and equipment
  • Residence halls located adjacent to PKI, with priority assignments for engineering and information technology students
  • Convenient access to supporting course work on the UNO campus
  • Optical communications laboratory
  • Telecommunications laboratory
