Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering
Studying for a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering degree at AUS can prove to be a very rewarding experience for a student.
Our department is committed to excellence in teaching and quality research. Our highly qualified faculty members hold terminal degrees from some of the world's most prestigious universities as well as work experience with leading industrial firms. We prepare our graduates for a wide range of technical positions in business and government service, research and development, as well as higher education.
Our 140-credit BS program is accredited both by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org/ , in the United States and by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. The program focuses on the following major areas in computer engineering: computer architecture and design, computer networks, databases, software engineering and computer applications in industry. Our internationally accredited program includes university requirements and core requirements for all computer engineering students. Additionally, technical and free elective courses must be completed. A summer internship experience at a national or international establishment is required, as is a senior project accomplished over two semesters.
The mission of the computer engineering program is to educate students in the principles and modern practices of computer engineering, to prepare students to pursue a wide range of computer engineering careers, and to generate new knowledge by the pursuit of research in selected areas of computer engineering.
