Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Computer Engineering Program


Welcome to the program of Computer Engineering. We have the challenge and commitment to provide the highest quality curriculum, driven by the needs of the industry, in the training of engineers in the field of Computer Engineering.

Program History

In 1995 the Inter American University of Puerto Rico, Bayamón Campus (IAUPRBC) launched their first three engineering programs (Electrical, Industrial and Mechanical). On January 1997, the academic program and services moved to the current location at Road 830, Dr. John Will Harris in Bayamón, Puerto Rico. In 1998, the Board of Trustees approved for the Inter American University of Puerto Rico, Bayamón Campus (IAUPRBC) a new mission focused on programs in Science, Engineering and Technology. The first students’ class was graduated in year 2000. The Computer Engineering program began operation in 2004 with less than 15 students, the first computer engineering class was in 2008.


At present the does not offers any submajor, tracks, or concentration. All computer engineering senior students have to take 12 credits-hours of prescribe distributive to deep their knowledge about computer engineering.

Inter-American University of Puerto Rico Bayamon Campus Mission Statement

The mission of the Bayamón Campus is to produce competent professionals by means of a high-quality academic education that is dynamic, relevant, and responsive to the latest advances in science, engineering, aeronautics, technology, business administration, and the arts. This educational experience is, in addition, framed within ethical, Christian, and ecumenical values. Our academic programs offer pre-university, undergraduate, and graduate levels of study through both traditional and online courses and degree paths. The Bayamón Campus contributes to society by educating individuals from both Puerto Rico and abroad, and from a wide range of socioeconomic sectors. The education we offer is distinguished by its emphasis on social and environmental responsibility, critical thinking, creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Our academic community is committed to academic excellence, service to others, and the advancement of knowledge through research. The principles that guide our efforts are:
  • Integrity and behavior representative of ecumenical Christian values.
  • Respect for human dignity, the environment, and cultural diversity
  • Peaceful and democratic coexistence in society.
  • The provision of high-quality services.
  • Operational efficiency and effectiveness.

School of Engineering Mission Statement

The mission of the School of Engineering is to develop outstanding professionals in the engineering field, competent to work in different scenarios, and able to contribute with their knowledge, skills, and abilities to the well-being of society.

Computer Engineering Mission Statement

The mission of the Computer Engineering program is to provide educational and practical experience that prepares individuals for graduate studies and to practice Engineering in a competitive environment.  The program provides a curriculum with fundamental and advanced topics in Computer Engineering, Mathematics, Science and Humanities with the development of analytical, experimental and computational skills.  The curriculum provides graduates with the skills and competencies necessary to understand today’s technology trends and become leaders in designing tomorrow’s technologies.

Program Educational Objectives

Graduates of the Computer Engineering Program are expected to attain the following educational objectives within the first few years of graduation:
  1. perform effectively in the workplace by assuming increasing responsibilities in the areas of computer engineering.
  2. pursue advanced studies around related computer engineering areas.
  3. demonstrate a commitment to continuous professional improvement in their areas of interest, including membership in professional societies.

Student Outcomes

The Computer Engineering Student Outcomes are shown below. Student outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program.
  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
