Course Details

BSc Computer Systems Engineering

Programme Overview
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.

Programme Objectives
The programme aims to produce graduates who:

  • have a solid foundation in the core areas of computer systems engineering.
  • Possess the requisite technical competence for immediate employment in the fields of computer systems design, systems programming, networks and embedded systems design.
  • can use modern engineering techniques and tools to identify, formulate and solve computer engineering problems.

Programme structure
The full time three year BSc in Computer Systems Engineering is offered by the Department of Computing in collaboration with the Mona School of Engineering. It consists of 104 credits: 34 at level one, 33 at level two, 28  at level three, and 9 foundation credits which can be taken at any time.  6 elective credits are included in the credits at  levels two and three.

 This programme is structured in such a way that during the first year, students are exposed to foundational 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.

Admission Requirements
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.
