Computer Engineering is an engineering discipline that is growing rapidly and in importance in the age of computing platform. Computer platforms are terms used to define the eras of computer and its applications. The computer era started in the 1950's with mainframe computers which were then replaced with servers in the 1980's.
The current computing platform that we live in had started in the 2010's is defined as an interaction between mobile computing, social media, cloud computing, big data analytics and Internet-of-Things. In the current computing era, Computer Engineering contribution is not limited to areas with applications such as computer systems and telecommunication system, but it can also be extended into areas of applications such as in mobile computing, manufacturing, medicine, information technology and many more. Unlike other engineering disciplines, Computer Engineering is very dynamic and becoming more pervasive in the world.
Computer engineers are involved in the design, building, testing and development of high technology devices ranging from the most powerful supercomputers to the smallest, most energy efficient microprocessors and microcontrollers used in systems with applications in areas such as social media search engines, data farms, cloud computing systems, virtual reality systems, massively parallel online systems which are used in gaming systems and large data processing systems. In addition to the previously mentioned application areas, Computer engineers also contribute in the automation for electromechanical systems and electronic control systems applied in process plants, automotive industry, aerospace, and even maintenance through new technologies such as Internet-of-Things and robotics. In other words, Computer engineers are in high demand in various fields in the current and future workplace.
The Bachelor of Computer Engineering with Honours programme at Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS emphasises on a strong foundation in physics, mathematics, and programming skills, followed by a thorough coverage of basic electrical and electronic engineering courses such as electrical technology, analogue electronics, digital electronics, microprocessor, and computer architectures. At higher levels, students are exposed to data and computer networking, operating systems, embedded systems, big data analytics and parallel and distributed computing. In the final year, students have the opportunity to major in one of these selected areas of their interest:
In order to graduate with the Bachelor of Computer Engineering with Honours degree, students are required to obtain a minimum of
145 credit hours.
