Many engineering and computer science students are interested in subject areas like math and science, have a natural curiosity, and enjoy experimenting with the latest technological gadgets, like computers. These are some of the traits engineers and computer scientists use in their everyday professions. Of course there are other talents that are needed, like good communication and interpersonal skills, and that is why we emphasize these abilities so heavily at Baylor. Approximately 950 students are currently studying engineering or computer science at Baylor.

Baylor engineering and computer science graduates are among the most sought after. The alumni have distinguished themselves within many high-tech and high-profile companies, including Raytheon, Dell, Accenture Consulting, Ernst & Young, Westinghouse, Compaq, General Electric, Northrop Grumman, Shell, Chrysler, Lockheed, Federal Express, AT&T, Texas Instruments, Unisys, Trane, Southwestern Bell, Exxon/Mobil, Texas Utilities, Motorola, and many others.
