There were a small number of Electrical and Computer Engineering Bachelors degrees being offered.


My son chose Rowan University (NJ) .. it's a nice midsize school south of Philadelphia.


Here's a link to the program:

Georgia Tech and Univ. of Chicago are coming to mind, but I'm not exactly sure.

Hi Ellen, you are probably trying to combine an interest in literature or art, with a degree in engineering. I know it's hard to choose between these two things. One thing that you should note is that competition for the good jobs is very tough. People that spend four years doing math, CS etc. have a great advantage, at interviews, w.r.t. to people that explored multiple things and took only a few CS classes for their degree. While Twitter, Google etc. also hire from liberal colleges, the numbers are very small compared to traditional technical colleges. Again, making a choice is hard but not making an early choice may really limit your opportunities later. Good luck!

Joanne’s Answer

The two terms together (liberal arts college & computer engineering) is almost an oxymoron.


The super good private schools (your Harvard, Princeton, etc .....) are always a sure win.


If you don't mind a large school (like a state school (Rutgers, Penn State)), you can have the best of both worlds.


As for a small, liberal arts with a strong comptuer science background, you may need to reach out to resources your guidance counselor may have (both of my sons recently started college and one's a CompE major. I can't recall any schools that fell into the group you're asking about.)

Thank you comment icon Oh ok. Thank you for the advice. While you were searching for colleges for your kid who started the CompE major what universities did you come across. I would just like to know in general and it doesn't have to be a small college. Also you do not have to answer this question if it is uncomfortable, but thank you. Ellen
