Individuals who anticipate enrollment in the Computer Engineering program should take every opportunity in prior educational experiences to build a solid base of mathematics and natural sciences course work. The UNO campus provides diagnostic testing in mathematics and English for entering students to ensure proper placement. UNO has courses which can be used to remove high school deficiencies. Departmental academic advisers will make every effort to assist the student in the proper selection of courses for adequate progress in the Computer Engineering program. Students may attend one or more of the summer sessions following their high school graduation to take courses which would lighten their academic load during the regular semesters or satisfy entrance deficiencies.
Students should endeavor to excel in written and oral communication skills, since such capability is extremely important both in the university and in future employment. Background work and continuation at the university in foreign languages is encouraged because of the increasingly global focus of many potential employers. Detailed information on applicable entrance requirements can be found in the appropriate sections of campus catalogs of both the Lincoln and Omaha campuses.
