Program Description

The fundamental principle of computer science and engineering is to use the computer not only to build systems that use a combination of hardware and software to solve real-world problems, but also to imagine the unimaginable and invent the future. The Computer Science and Engineering undergraduate program offers a modern curriculum supported by today's technological opportunities. Until their graduation, students can construct their course programs to overlap with any sub-field within the discipline or with other FENS programs. Similarly, students in other programs are encouraged to take courses in Computer Science and Engineering to master computational tools in their field. Since it is a discipline with high global demand and has to follow the ever-changing information processing and communication technologies, job opportunities after graduation are quite high.

Program Objectives

The Computer Science and Engineering program offers a range of courses covering areas such as computer systems, software, hardware, theory, algorithms, artificial intelligence, networks, databases, and security. The interdisciplinary nature of the faculty encourages students to take courses from other programs. After the university-wide first year curriculum, students start to take basic computer courses starting from their second year (sometimes even in their first year) and then take advanced courses. In the 3rd and 4th years, they have to complete an 8-week internship and a two-semester "Design and Project" course, respectively.

Qualification Awarded

The Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science and Engineering ( first cycle in Computer Science and Engineering) is awarded to the graduates who have successfully completed all courses in the curriculum.
