The courses develop a professional approach to design computer-based systems, looking at both widely applicable principles of software engineering and the evolving computing technologies in the thrust areas of the faculty. Students are admitted to a four-year BS degree in the Faculty of Computer Science & Engineering, opting for one of the following three specialized degree programs:

Bachelors of Science in Artificial Intelligence

   partnered by Huawei, accredited by NCEAC

Bachelors of Science in Computer Engineering

   accredited by PEC under level-II i.e. OBE

Bachelors of Science in Computer Science

   accredited by NCEAC

All three streams focus on establishing a strong mathematical foundation, basic hardware aspects of computing, and advanced technical electives spanning areas such as computer communications, neural networks, reinforcement learning, expert systems, databases, biologically inspired computing, data and network security, signal processing and computer vision.
