Computer Engineering

The Department of Computer Engineering was established in 2009. The Department awards a degree of B. Eng. (Computer Engineering) for the undergraduate. The Department now runs postgraduate programmes in M. Eng. and Ph.D. (Computer Engineering). Computer Engineering is one of the Departments in the School of Engineering and Engineering Technology. Other Departments in the school include Agriculture & Bioresources Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical/Electronics Engineering, Material & Metallurgical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering and Telecommunication Engineering. The Department encourages research activities and staff development as well as adequate practical/industrial exposure for her students.


The Department of Computer Engineering is structured to become a world class academic Centre of Excellence in Computer Engineering Training and Research.


The Department of Computer Engineering will build capacity and develop human capital to high level through pragmatic and dynamic training, research and developmental services of high standards in the field of Computer Engineering that meet the demands of the society and will stand the test of time and space.

About Us

Computer engineering has traditionally been viewed as a combination of both computer science (CS) and electrical engineering (EE). It has evolved over the past three decades as a separate, although intimately related, discipline. The discipline is solidly grounded in the theories and principles of computing, mathematics, science, and engineering and it applies these theories and principles to solve technical problems through the design of computing hardware, software, networks, and processes. Computer engineers are electrical engineers with additional training in the areas of software design and hardware-software integration while turning less attention on power electronics and physics. They are involved in all aspects of computing, from the design of individual microprocessors, personal computers and supercomputers, to circuit design, as well as the integration of computer systems into other kinds of systems.

Ideally, common computer engineering tasks include writing embedded software for real-time microcontrollers, working with analog sensors, and designing mixed signal circuit boards, VLSI chips and operating systems. Computer engineers are also well suited for research in the field of robotics, which relies on using computers together with other electrical systems.
