The Computer Engineering Program (CompEng) is a special program offered by the conjunction of the Computer Science Department and the Electrical Engineering Department. The program is a part of SEAS, and thus open only to engineers. Both undergraduate and graduate level degrees are offered. No one calls it CompEng; instead it is usually referred to as "CE" by other engineers.

Because there is no dedicated computer engineering department, the program is vaguely homeless. It seeks to straddle the software and hardware sides of computers, and will lean more heavily toward one or the other depending on the home department of the sitting chair. Computer engineering is known as one of the most difficult majors in SEAS, due to the fact that undergraduates must essentially complete the core curriculums of the CS and EE degree tracks. Computer engineers are also subjected to the legendarily brutal operating systems class.
