BS Computer Engineering

Program Description

The Computer Engineering program provides students with the required skills and competencies needed in the field of computer, communication, and information technology. The program will help develop fundamental understanding of computer engineering, its applications, and its underlying concepts.

Graduates are expected to understand computer hardware and software, and their interdependencies as computer engineering focuses on the areas of digital systems, computer architecture, microprocessors, computer programming using machine level and high-level languages, data communications, computer networks, and operating systems, among others.

Program Mode of Delivery of Instruction​

  1. Blended Program - The Blended program was designed for the student who wishes to have face-to-face teaching or a mix of face-to-face and online teaching/learning activities (TLAs) in some or all of his/her courses.
  2. UOx (Fully Online) Program – The UOx or fully online program was designed for the student who wishes “anywhere anytime” education or who totally does not wish to be constrained by geography and time in the teaching/learning activities throughout the duration of his/her period of study. For a program to be “anywhere anytime”, the teaching/learning activities (TLAs) of all courses must be asynchronous, where learning does not require real-time interaction. Instead, content and coursework are available online for students to access at a time that best suits their schedules. The only time consideration in this mode of program delivery is in the deadlines of submission of assessment tasks and in the school academic calendar.

Program Accreditations
