It is our pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Computer Engineering Department. The department was founded in 1999. Now, the department includes 266 students, eight members of staff, two teaching and research assistants, and two technicians. Recently, the academic plan of the department has been modified to include more labs and to merge some courses by removing what proved to be redundant topics.
The new plan includes 168 credit hours distributed as 24 credit hours of university requirements, 53 credit hours of faculty requirements, and 91 credit hours of department requirements. The plan concentrates on giving the student the enough knowledge, skills and hands on experience in all the fields of computer engineering. This includes the ability to design and implement the hardware computer circuits both on the printed circuit board and the silicon chip levels, to design and implement software individually and as part of team work, to use the software applications, to use the off-shelf component in applications like control and communication, and to handle and program operating systems and networks.
Our objectives of the plan are to turn out graduates who:
