B.Eng. (Computer Engineering)
Programme Duration : 5 years
B.Eng Computer Engineering programme is one of the programmes offered in the Department of Computer Engineering. The Programme is a five years programme for students coming in through UTME and four years for students coming in through DE.
ObjectivesThe primary aim of the Computer Engineering degree within the University is to provide an outstanding engineering education to future leaders and to pursue excellence through contributions to research, the profession, industry and the community. A second aim is to instill in our students the higher order critical and analytical thinking skills, research and problem solving abilities, and communication skills needed to enable them to operate effectively in an increasingly complex technical, business, and policy environment.
PhilosophyThe B.Eng. program in Computer Engineering is built on a foundation of mathematics, computing science, and physical science. A small component of electrical engineering is introduced in the first year, with progressively larger components in second and third year. The final year is devoted exclusively to electrical and computer systems engineering courses. Each year of the program comprises a number of discipline-based courses and courses taught by other discipline areas. In the third and fourth year students have the option to select specialty topics in areas such as communications, electronics and control, power systems, information technology, and computer engineering.
