Chairman’s Welcome message

It is a pleasure for me to welcome you to Computer Engineering website of the Near East University,

Department of Computer Engineering offers Bachelor (BSc) degree for undegraduate, Master (MSc), and Doctorate (PhD) degrees for postgraduate students for their academic interest and the market needs. The department also offers an enriching academic environment where our dedicated staff members offer their best output and students are encouraged to show their best performance.

Undergraduate computer engineering students are studying a wide array of subjects, including computer organization, programming languages, communication, database management systems, data structure and algorithms, control systems, electronics, microprocessors, and artificial intellegence. The students are exposed to the broad spectrum of computer hardware and software engineering courses with an emphasis on the embedded systems. Our students are supplied with the knowledge and skills needed for high quality engineering work and to improve their ability and skills with a broad intellectual spectrum so that they will be ready for diverse and competitive carrer paths.

Our graduate programs are research oriented and lead toward the degrees of master of science and doctor of philosophy. Graduate student’s research facilities are available in embedded systems, software systems with the application of different innovation technologies, and artifical intelligence elements. Using core research areas, our faculty are expanding the base of knowledge through numerous referred publications.

Educating students is the main objective of our department. We believe the best way to achieve this is to expose our students to the important questions being researched by our faculty. We strive to involve undergraduate students to significant hands-on team projects and encourge research. One of such research project was the creating robotic football team of Near East University. These projects promote cooperation and team-based problem solving, leadership, and mentoring, while exposing students to best engineering practices that are invaluable for any succeesfull career choice.

On behalf of the faculty of the Department of Computer Engineering I welcome you to explore the wide range of exciting educational and research opportunities offered by the Department. We welcome inquiries if you have any questions or would like to have additional information.
