Computer engineering is one of the fastest changing areas technologically. New ideas are developed every day in computer theory and applications. It is an area which needs to be given adequate attention and prominence in order for the University to stay abreast with technological developments and to make the necessary impact on the national economy.
Computer Engineering integrates several fields of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science required for developing computer systems. The main aim of Computer Engineering is to develop faster Computer Systems. Computer Engineers are involved in both hardware and software aspects of computing, from the design of microprocessors, personal computers and supercomputers, to logic circuit design. They also perform the task of writing software and firmware for embedded microcontrollers.
The following are sub-areas of our Computer Engineering programme.
- Intelligent Energy Systems (InES)
- Multifunctional Integrated Circuits and Systems (MICS)
- Networks, Distributed Systems, and Security (NeDSyS)
- Robotics and Embedded Systems for Critical Applications (RESCA)
- Software Engineering and Programming Languages (SEPL)
During the third year of its existence, the program was expanded to include optional electives in Information Communication Technology (ICT) and Medical Technology (MT).
