Department of Computer Engineering

The Department

The Department was established along with the other four departments in the Faculty of Engineering in the year 2015. Currently, the Department accommodates three batches of students who are specialized in Computer Engineering and each batch has 40 students. 

The latest knowledge and applications are introduced to the students in Algorithms, Operating Systems, Data Communication and Networking, Security, Software Engineering, Embedded Systems, Intelligent Systems, Machine Learning, Computer Vision and Image Processing, Parallel Computing, and etc.

The knowledge and the skills that students gained during the academic program will open opportunities locally as well as internationally. The computer Engineering undergraduates will be provided with countless opportunities to work in the industry as a Computer Engineer, System Design Engineer, System Architect, Software Engineer, or can continue onto postgraduate studies and research.

Our Strategy

We offer a comprehensive range of Computer Engineering courses tailored to meet the needs of both generalist engineering students and those seeking specialization. For all engineering students, we provide fundamental courses that cover the essential principles of Computer Engineering, ensuring a solid foundation in the field. These introductory classes are designed to equip students with a broad understanding of the subject.

By carefully selecting from a range of technical electives in our computer engineering study program, undergraduates have the unique chance to specialize in either data management or high-performance computing. These two sub-disciplines offer exciting opportunities for students to focus their studies and gain expertise in their chosen field.
