To prepare a culturally diverse student body for successful professional careers grounded in strong engineering knowledge, a culture of innovation, and an awareness of the global societal, economic, and environmental contexts within which computer engineering and technology decisions are made.
The computer engineering undergraduate program bridges the gap between electrical engineering and computer science, with a curriculum that focuses on hardware-software integration, while preparing students for successful professional careers in areas such as computer hardware design, database engineering, and computer network security.
Designed to ensure excellence in the rapidly-evolving field of computer engineering, we emphasize the role of general education, ethical and social responsibility, in addition to life-long learning in the personal and professional growth of future computer engineers.
GOALS (program educational objectives)
Within a few years, graduates will…
- Pursue successful professional careers in computer engineering and technology or related fields while remaining technically current through graduate education and professional engagement.
- Excel as leaders, team members, communicators, and innovators in collaborative multicultural environments.
- Benefit society by practicing their profession responsibly and ethically, and sharing their knowledge through training and mentorship opportunities.
The 137 credit-hours program will include 15-18 hours of computer engineering electives where students will be exposed to a wide variety of areas such as wireless communications, renewable energy, artificial intelligence, data network security, software engineering, mobile applications, and computer architecture.
The program culminates into a mandatory field experience and an interdisciplinary capstone design project. Since the introduction of a third year industry placement, our students have had a unique opportunity to work in some landmark projects in Dubai, the UAE, and worldwide.
