The aim of the Computer Engineering programme is to produce graduates who can fill the role of engineering practitioners in the computer industry within the global market. This requires that such graduates should be:
(a) Well-grounded in the general area of digital electronic engineering
(b) Capable to undertake the design, construction and maintenance of digital computers.
(c) Versatile in computer and system programming techniques.
(d) Able to adopt and adapt exogenous computer technologies for the solution of local problems.
(e) Able to undertake independent or research studies in the field of computer technology and applications.
The curriculum of the department of Computer Engineering is therefore designed to provide the students the opportunity to prepare for specialized professional career. This curriculum leads to the honours degree of Bachelor of Science normally at the end of five years.
