Program Description

The fundamental tenet of computer science and engineering is to employ this infinitely malleable building block, the computer, in building not just systems employing a combination of hardware and software for bringing solutions to real-world problems but also in imagining the yet unimaginable and in inventing the future.

The undergraduate Computer Science and Engineering program (CS) offers a state-of-the-art curriculum supported by modern computational facilities linked to the external world via the Internet. Students are encouraged to build their programs of study within the discipline and to familiarize themselves with at least one of the other FENS programs through relevant electives. Similarly, students in other programs are encouraged to take courses from Computer Science and Engineering in order to master the computational tools of their trade.Opportunities for employment after graduation are extremely high, given that every industry and business has to keep up with the rapidly changing computing and communication facilities offered and demanded by the global market.

Program objectives

Computer Science and Engineering program offers a balanced set of courses in the areas of computer systems, software, theory, AI, networks, databases, and security. The interdisciplinary nature of the Faculty encourages students to take courses from other programs. Students start taking core CS courses starting in their 2nd year, after a university-wide first year curriculum, and must complete an 8-week internship and a two-semester ""Design and Project"" course, in the 3rd and 4th years, respectively.
