PhD in Computer Engineering The University of Tennessee - Tickle College of Engineering
Computer engineering deals with the design, construction, and implementation of the hardware and software components that comprise computers, computer-controlled systems, and networks of computing devices. Modern computing appears everywhere in our daily lives, including the development and maintenance of systems such as many-core computer processors, internet-of-things (IoT) systems, and cyber-physical control systems, to name a few. Example applications include smartphones, autonomous vehicles, robotics, automotive embedded systems, voice-controllable systems, image processing, and supercomputer architectures.
