Department of Computer Science and Engineering
We are committed to educating our students to the highest international standards so that they can compete successfully in the global marketplace.

With a truly international faculty and student body, our department offers two degree programs at the undergraduate level. Our Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (BSCoE) degree and our Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BSCS) degree have received accreditation from the Engineering and Computing Accreditation Commissions of ABET,, in the United States and by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education. 

Even though both programs share a common set of courses, they each have a different and distinct flavor. While the BSCS focuses on software, Internet technologies and programming, the BSCoE covers a balanced mix of topics in the area of hardware, networks and software. Both degrees appeal to technically minded students with a curiosity for today's fast-changing technology. The curricula for both programs is grounded in academic excellence and designed to produce graduates who are exceptionally competent and whose work is notable for its technical excellence.

Through innovative classroom instruction supported by laboratories equipped with the state-of-the-art hardware and software, we ensure that students are introduced to both fundamental and advanced knowledge in areas such as Internet computing, embedded systems, networking technology, computer security and software engineering.

We also offer a graduate program leading to a master's degree in computer engineering.

With an outstanding faculty, an enthusiastic and multicultural student body, a curriculum that caters to the needs of the region's dynamic marketplace and well-equipped laboratories, it is no wonder that our department continues to produce talented graduates who are sought after by national and multinational corporations in the Gulf region as well as those furthering their education at the graduate level at reputable universities throughout North America and Europe.
