The Department of Computer and Network Engineering offers an innovative Computer Engineering
undergraduate program to address current demands and future market needs in the UAE.
Computer Engineering is a field of study that encompasses the fundamental principles,
methods, and modern tools for the design and implementation of computing systems.
Computer engineers specialize in the analysis, design, implementation, verification,
integration and application of programmable and/or reconfigurable computers/devices
or computer-based systems. By understanding a computer system from top to bottom,
from application software to operating systems, to hardware and circuits to networking
and security, the computer engineers are well prepared to create the wide array of
computing systems and devices that we all use and depend upon every day. In our computer
engineering program, computing and network engineering courses are taught together,
so you learn the fundamental ideas related to both fields. You can choose to specialize
in either area to ensure that you are ready to work when you graduate.
As a computer engineer, you will create new opportunities for businesses by driving
new technologies, and by devising engineering solutions to make the businesses more
productive and competitive. You will also assist the businesses to design and develop
new computer microprocessors or microcontroller-based products and systems, or embedded
computer systems to enhance functionalities of existing communication, instrument,
or automatic control products or systems, to meet ever-changing market needs and consumer
demands. Our computer engineering graduates go on to have successful careers in industry,
government, or pursue graduate studies.
