The programme focuses on designing and using complex modern computer systems. As part of the programme, students cover such subjects as innovation and entrepreneurship, hardware systems design and modelling, computer architecture and programming, software project management and databases, to name but a few.
The Department of Computer Engineering received the IBM Faculty Award 2011 and has an excellent partnership with experts from the IBM Development Centre in Germany and the IBM research laboratory in Israel.
When studying the Computer and Engineering Systems programme, students are exposed to systems design and modelling, computer architectures and programming, to name few of the topics. Exposure to those topics will position students well for jobs at small, medium and large companies. Their jobs will involve defining, designing and using embedded computer system in areas such as automotive electronics, consumer devices, telecommunications, etc.
Why this programme?
- Individual approach to students
- Students work closely with the professor
- Uses the latest software and hardware to develop practical skills
- Close cooperation and networking with IT industry
- Develops the computing and IT management skills needed to be effective in the industry and in commerce straight away
