Computer Systems Engineering includes aspects of computer science, electronics engineering and software engineering. It looks at how the hardware and software components of computing systems and computer controlled systems are designed, constructed, implemented and maintained.
The Computer Systems Engineering programme is designed to expose students to a combination of theory and practical work, in order to allow students to diagnose real life problems and develop a variety of solutions.
The programme aims to produce graduates who:
The full time three year BSc in Computer Engineering is offered by the Department of Computing in collaboration with the of Engineering. It consists of 104 credits: 34 at level one, 33 at level two, 28
This programme is structured in such a way that during the first year, students are exposed to l courses in computing, electronics and electrical engineering, physics, engineering mathematics, ethics and professional practices. The second and third year courses provide the core courses required for this discipline. All students are required to complete a capstone project during the final year. During the summer period between second and third year students will do an Internship course.
Applicants should possess 5 CSEC (grades 1-3) or GCE O’level subjects, including English Language and mathematics
) or their equivalent. Passes must include physics and mathematics at the advanced level GCE or CAPE (2 units each), preferably at grades 3 or C or above to qualify for the degree programme. Equivalent qualifications from a community college or another university with a minimum GPA of 2.5 will be considered.
