The department offers a four-year, undergraduate program leading to the Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Computer Engineering. The undergraduate program is designed to provide students with the fundamental knowledge and interdisciplinary educational foundation for a fulfilling career in high quality engineering profession. The Department’s program is designed so that its graduates may continue with specialised work and undertake creative research towards a master’s degree.
All the necessary computing facilities are available to enhance students’ knowledge, skills and competences in the field of Computer Engineering and in the application of computerised techniques. These facilities include well equipped computer laboratories with high-speed personal computers and hardware laboratory for design.
Research interests of the faculty include: neural networks, digital signal processing, security, artificial intelligence, parallel architectures and database systems.
Students enrolled in the BSc program, are required to complete forty courses with 132 credits. Students also are required to obtain a pass in Turkish language and National History in order to fulfil the requirements of this balanced program. In the first 2 years, common courses for engineers include mathematical and computer sciences, and engineering sciences. The last two years, not only include the core courses of computer engineering such as operating systems, file organisation, database system and programming languages, but also include technical electives and free electives. All of the core courses have laboratory sessions.
Research and Software Development Laboratory
The newly established RESODEC lab is the main research facility of the Faculty of Engineering. Equiped with 10 workstation class computers and other advanced peripherals, the laboratory is serving the high computing power needs of the MSc and PhD students as well as the researchers of the Faculty. In collaboration with the INTERDEL lab, RESODEC is adding to the research oriented value of the Faculty and forcing the university’s educational and research oriented computing power position to stand out among other rivals.
Computer Engineering Laboratory
The mission of the Computer Engineering Laboratory is to give practical skills for the undergraduate and graduate students in the fundamental concepts of the computer engineering discipline. The Computer Engineering Laboratory uses a network of up-to date computers, and some systems that will help the students on the hardware design. The Computer Engineering Laboratory is responsible for education in computer engineering, and software engineering. The curriculum of the laboratory includes basic courses in computer and software engineering and advanced courses on operating systems, and real-time object-oriented programming. Located at Techno park Complex Second Floor, the computer laboratory is equipped with 25 PCs to support the main computing education needs of the Faculty of Engineering. The PC’s are equipped with recent peripherals powerful enough to conduct the bachelor level courses’ laboratory sessions and experiments.
Information Technologies Research and Development Laboratory
The newly established INTERDEL laboratory started to service the Faculty of Engineering on April 11th 2011. Equipped with 44 state of the art PC’s and other peripherals, the INTERDEL Laboratory extended the Faculty’s computing capabilities for further improving the computing requiring experiments and especially further enhance the practical experiences of the third and fourth year engineering students.
Computer engineering programme graduates have job opportinities in communications and networking, IT departments, research and development centers, software design companies, etc.
