Your internet-connected home devices could be compromising your security. BYU computer engineers have a solution

By Todd Hollingshead May 29, 2024 08:00 AM
It seems like just about every new household device connects to the internet these days. Thermostat? Check. Doorbell? Yup. Washer and Dryer? In 2024, of course. Even pet feeders connect to WiFi now to be controlled by an app. But all is not well because many of these devices can pose security risks to home networks.

Electrical Engineering

Almost everything that's been developed in the last 50 years uses electronics to communicate or to think. Electrical engineering tries to encompass all of these fields — communications systems, robotics, light, power, circuits — anything with an "on" button. Here, you'll learn how to be creative and think on your own, how to analyze how something works, and how to build new technologies.

Computer Engineering

Computer engineers design digital circuits and the software that interacts with them. Here, you'll be designing the next generation of computers, but not just the computers on your desk. There are computers in everything these days, from your cell phone to your television, your car to satellites and spacecraft. You could be working on a drone altitude control system one day and a life-saving medical device the next.
