Studying for a computer engineering degree at AUS can prove to be an extremely rewarding experience for a student.
Our department is committed to excellence in teaching and quality research, and its 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.
Throughout the course, you will be prepared for a wide range of technical positions in business and government service, research, development and higher education.
As part of the 140-credit program, which is accredited both by the Commission for Academic Accreditation of the Ministry of Education's Higher Education Affairs Division in the United Arab Emirates and by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET in the United States, you'll be focusing on major areas in computer engineering: computer architecture and design, computer networks, databases, software engineering and computer applications in industry.
This internationally accredited computer engineering degree program also includes university requirements and core requirements for all students. Additionally, technical and free elective courses must be completed. A summer internship experience at a national or international establishment is an essential part of the course, as is a senior project accomplished over two semesters.
The mission of the computer engineering program at AUS 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.
