Computer Engineering provides the opportunity to work in the continuously changing technology sector. With the development of faster hardware components, new communication systems and software there is a demand for computer Engineers. Computer Engineering students study the design of digital hardware and software systems. Computer Engineering encompasses a wide range of topics including operating systems, computer architecture, computer networks, robotics, artificial intelligence and computer-aided design. An important area within computing engineering is the development of embedded system devices such as cell phones, digital audio players, digital video recorders, alarm systems, x-ray machines and laser surgical tools, all require integration of hardware and embedded software and are all the result of computer engineering.

Software engineering companies, telecommunications firms, designers of digital hardware and many other business enterprises hire Computer Engineers right out of college and pay them well.


To produce technically competent, innovative, self-motivated computer engineers, through the teaching – learning process and research with globally accepted standards, who shall be responsible towards society and the environment.


To develop graduates with competence, conscience and compassion who are prepared to excel in the field of computer engineering. To create an environment of excellence in both theoretical and practical aspects of computing. To encourage and strengthen innovative thinking and problem solving capability with emphasis on research and development with respect for the environment.
