Computer Engineering is one of the fastest evolving disciplines in our technological society and its development has significantly enhanced the standard of our living. Devices such as mobile phones, digital cameras, alarm systems, switches and routers, x-ray machines, and laser surgical tools all require integration of hardware and embedded software and all are the result of Computer Engineering.

The Department of Computer Engineering offers as undergraduate degree program a BSc in Computer Engineering. Our curriculum focuses on the theories, principles, and practices of traditional electrical engineering and mathematics and applies them to the problems of designing computers and devices that contain computers. It involves the study of hardware, software, communications, and the interaction among them.

With more than 300 students currently registered and around 100 students admitted each year, the department had made the effort to recruit faculty and staff members who are committed to the continuous improvement of its program and to provide its students with high quality education, as well as personal and professional growth experiences. The department is equipped with 10 laboratories and 10 classrooms to fully utilize its students and staff capabilities.
