In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful
Praise be to God, Lord of the Worlds, and prayers and peace be upon the most honorable of the prophets and messengers, our master Muhammad, and upon all his family and companions.
Today, the world is witnessing rapid technological development, as computer systems and information technology have become an essential part of our daily lives. In this context, computer engineering plays a pivotal role in contributing to this rapid development, by preparing qualified personnel capable of designing, developing and operating computer systems.
In order to prepare a generation capable of keeping pace with global technical progress and achieving the Kingdom’s vision, the Computer Engineering Department has been keen, since its establishment, to continuously develop and improve plans and curricula in line with the tremendous development in the field of designing and manufacturing digital systems with their various applications. The department hastened to obtain international academic accreditation, ABET, according to high-quality academic standards that ensure learning outcomes are measured very accurately to contribute to the process of continuous modernization. The Computer Engineering Department continuously encourages faculty members to engage in the process of self- and collective development by participating in training courses, workshops, and research groups provided by the university or external parties. At the same time, the Computer Engineering Department has laboratories and infrastructure in the male and female sections equipped with sufficient equipment and necessary tools available to students and those interested in research and scientific projects.
The Computer Engineering Department is pleased annually to accept at least 300 students, both male and female, according to competitive standards, while providing them with the necessary academic guidance and counseling. The department has formed many different committees that work in an integrated manner to serve the student, such as the Student Affairs and Complaints Committee, the Student Activities Committee, the Examinations Committee, in addition to the IEEE Student Club and the Google Developers Club. Out of an interest in listening to students’ opinions, the department has formed a student advisory council headed by the head of the department and the membership of a number of male and female students, to take the students’ opinions about the difficulties and problems they find and about development opportunities in the department in all fields. Currently, the Department of Computer Engineering is launching a Master of Science program in Computer Engineering to provide the opportunity for our students to complete their education. We ask God Almighty for our success and success.
