This programme provides students with the essential knowledge and skills to enable them specify, design, model, implement, program, and test integrated hardware and software systems as creative solutions to engineering problems. Computer Engineering is a field with significant career potential because where ever there are computers, there will be jobs for computer engineers. Computer Engineering graduates find positions in industries where starting salaries are among the highest offered to university graduates.


Students shall learn both the hardware and software aspects of a computer system, as well as the electronic or electrical components that come with it. Students will also be exposed to creating/ connecting the computer systems interface with the real-world. In addition, students will be exposed to designing, implementing and maintaining virtualised data centres and software-defined networking to support enterprise data demands. Since Cloud computing is the future of data centre operations, these skills will be extremely valued. Computer Systems Engineering students can specialize in areas such as computer systems, system administration, computer networks, embedded system design, programming languages, real-time computing and control, cloud computing, signals and systems, machine learning and system software. Students will also be equipped with the required tools that enable them to be part of a design team for creating and establishing an integrated digital hardware and software systems in a broad scope of application fields.
