OBJECTIVES OF THE DEGREE PROGRAM
The Bachelor of Science program in Computer Engineering prepares the students to achieve the following career and professional accomplishments within a few years of graduation. The graduates of the program are able to:
- A strong foundation in Computer Engineering area relevant to the current needs of industry to allow them to successfully compete for demanding and high quality jobs
- Work in industry and government and provide the application of the information and communication technologies.
- An ability to use computers as a tool and design, construct software-intensive systems.
- To prepare students for professional success with clear communication ability, commitment to ethical and social responsibilities, diversity, lifelong learning, and teamwork.
- Made positive contributions to their community and society by applying skills and abilities learned during their undergraduate program in computer engineering and systems
- Improve their knowledge and skills through lifelong learning and graduate studies
The aims of the Department of Computer Engineering are; bringing up experienced and knowledgeable individuals equipped with theoretical and practical information related to the discipline, and at the same time, bring up competent individuals who are able to contribute to the developments and research studies in the field, and be managers and instructors to continue to bring up qualified people who can effectively serve in this field.
The department aims to raise specialists and instructors for the field of computer engineering discipline and by this way, help to meet the demands in relevant industries, job centres and higher education institutions. In addition to this, carry out research, offer elective computer courses to students of other departments and provide help for faculty members in their research studies that require the utilization of computers.
The degree program aims at equipping our students with the abilities needed to face with confidence the challenges of the domestic and foreign professional sector or of post-graduate academic programs at home or abroad. Our graduates acquire the professional skills that a rapidly shifting technological environment demands, including complex reasoning, critical thinking, and problem solving. They are able to assume leading roles in the industry. In addition, our graduates are in position to succeed in the private industrial sector, in the government sector, as well as in the academic and research environment.
