Online Computer Engineering Degrees

Whatever computer engineering degree they choose, students have three different learning modes to explore. Campus-based programs require students to spend a majority of their “learning hours” in the classroom working with peers and professors. Online programs use a completely remote model in which assignments can be submitted over the web. Students interact with others through chat platforms and converse with professors via email. Hybrid programs serve as the third option. They incorporate web-based coursework with campus-based elements such as lab activities.
