Computer engineering is a driving force behind innovation and technologies that are changing the world, pushing computing power and capabilities to the edge. Bridging hardware (e.g. microprocessors, tablets) and software, computer engineering has implications across many industries, ranging from technology to healthcare, green energy to aeronautics.

Design, development, testing and manufacture of computer hardware, software, and networks are the foundation of this program that will enable you to work in all areas served by technology. From work on tiny computerized systems found in thermostats or mobile phones to significantly larger ones found in industrial robots, cars, or data centers, the emphasis is on innovation and hands-on experience including building prototypes.

You will be able to put your theoretical learning into practice through the state-of-the art laboratories including the Electronic Circuits laboratory, Embedded Systems laboratory, Multimedia laboratory and the Networking laboratory.

Developed according to the standards of international professional bodies such as the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE), the Computer Society (IEEE-CS), and the Association for Information Technology Professionals (AITP), the program ensures that you will be uniquely qualified to design, analyze, and test wide-ranging solutions using state-of-the-art technologies.
  • Career Prospects

    Computer engineers can work in all areas served by technology today including government, education, health, industry, commerce, tourism, and infrastructure.

    Graduates of this program have gone on to work in a wide range of companies including Abu Dhabi Distribution Company, Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority, ADGAS, ADNOC, Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank, Creative Robotics, Etisalat, MDS Computers, Ministry of Interior and TwoFour54.
  • Entry Requirements

    Abu Dhabi University accepts applications on a rolling basis throughout the year, with intakes in the Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer semesters.
