Computer Engineering Program is prepared in order that the students would adapt to the rapidly changing technology in their business lives and acquire a balanced basis in the applications, software and hardware of computer. A focused point is the engineering approaches like the analysis and design of the software and hardware systems.

In the last ten years, the big decrease at the cost of the digital systems and the usage of the computers in different areas has increased the importance of the department. Today, the Computer Engineering is one of the most rapidly developing departments. Department of Computer Engineering offers a program which provides the necessary skills and sufficiency for the planning and performing of the digital systems, design, microprocessor, the technology of the printed circuit, data communication, advanced programming languages, computer system and its networks. Computers are made up of two based upon and complementary components called the hardware and software. The computers which are constantly developing is becoming cheaper and besides this, their efficiency is increasing. Business opportunities of the computer engineers are quite versatile.

Computer Engineering is a profession which aims to solve the problems that require processing information automatically with the computer based hardware and software systems. In accordance with this aim, computer engineers analyze the methods of processing information automatically, design and develop the communication techniques and the necessary structure of the hardware and software in order to solve the problems which require the usage of these methods.

The students of the department have the opportunity to learn new techniques about the subjects in which they are interested by taking elective courses in the special fields. In addition to this, they are educated in the basic subjects like the theoretical basis of the computer science, hardware and architecture of the computer, programming languages, data structures and algorithms, operating systems and networks. Because most of the lessons have projects and students carry out them under the consultancy of their instructors Thanks to most of the lessons having projects and carrying out of these projects, a strong interaction is constituted between the instructors and the students.

Department of Computer Engineering aims to educate students as individuals who are mastered in the basic subjects of the computer sciences, have enough knowledge to become experts in different subjects, ability to use the techniques of the computer engineering and developed designing and deciding skills.
