BS Computer Engineering


( Coming Soon )

Introduction

Welcome to the newest department at ITU! Computer Engineering is the branch of engineering which
integrates electronic engineering with computer sciences. It deals with the design and utilization of
computing systems for Industrial Automation, Robotics, Multimedia and Artificial Intelligence. Our
carefully crafted coursework provides the right mix of expertise for handling the upcoming challenges in
the domain of Computer Engineering at a global as well as national level. Our goal for students is to
provide a high-quality engineering education that includes hands-on experience. ITU’s Computer
Engineering department has arguably, the finest faculty in the country who have studied and worked for
institutions of international repute.

Departmental Vision

To be recognized as a center of excellence in the domain of Computer Engineering, by building strong
technical expertise, in order to provide innovative solutions to global as well as local technological
challenges.

Mission

The departmental mission is to provide the right nurturing environment in order to produce graduates
with exceptional creative thinking and problem solving skills to become creative members of the society.
This shall be achieved by exposing them to world class curriculum, state of the art labs, access to latest
research and exposure to latest technical trend via strong industrial-academic linkage.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)
