Computer engineers provide the key building blocks of the modern information technology based society, from improved software systems and faster computers to next-generation communication networks.
The Computer Engineering program is accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MoHESR) since March 2004.
The Computer Engineering program is also accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org
, effective October 2009.
Program Educational Objectives
The Computer Engineering program educational objectives are to prepare engineering professionals who:
