One of the benefits of the Systems option is its accreditation. The Computer Systems Option is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The Computer Systems option gives students the necessary training and preparation that many large companies (such as Google, Apple, and Intel) desire. Computer Systems also gives the student the necessary preparation to continue and pursue computer science or other engineering fields in graduate level programs. The extra preparation required in the Systems option is more math, physics, and required CS courses; however, as a Systems option, a student can still take a minimum of 2-5 CS elective courses.
