Department of Computer Engineering

    Department of Computer Engineering

    The goal of the Department of  Computer Engineering is to produce engineers who are able to effectively  use the theoretical and applied knowledge in the fields of computer  systems, computer networks, computer image processing, data mining,  artificial intelligence and robotics, bioinformatics, software modeling  and analysis, computer software and hardware. The students are also  educated to be able to follow the developments in the world and to  become experts and leaders in research, development and production in  industry and research institutions.

    The duration of undergraduate education in the Computer Engineering  Department is 4 years. In the first two years, mainly basic engineering  and basic computer engineering courses take place. During next two  years, technical elective courses were introduced in order to enable  students to be directed to software or hardware subjects or different  fields of computer engineering, apart from the mandatory courses. There  are also additional non-technical elective courses that may be useful  for computer engineers. Considering that the graduates work in different  fields of computer engineering, the importance of the right choice to  be made in technical elective courses will be understood better. The  education cost of the students; consist of computer, hardware parts and  consumables, books and stationery expenses.

    Students who are successful at the end of undergraduate education are  awarded a “Computer Engineer” diploma. The graduates can take roles  such as system analyst, application programmer, director of data  processing centers, founder and executive engineer, database manager,  research and development engineer in the design and implementation of  computer aided industrial systems. In addition, they can become  lecturers at universities and contribute to education and training while  progressing academically, and have the chance for scientific studies  and research.


    By mastering the disciplines of computer science, to specialize in  project analysis, design and development processes from an idea point to  the level of concrete work, to be able to analyze the present with the  past and design the future, to be able to see and model life with an  innovative and futuristic perspective, to think analytically. To gain  experience in artificial intelligence tools and methods that can  implement fully autonomous systems with data science that can  effectively use today’s big data phenomenon, internalize  engineering-specific perspective and synthesis capability; To be prone  to multidisciplinary work that can produce informatics projects with  stakeholders in different fields, especially medicine, to focus their  professional achievements on specialization in these areas by exploring  personal sub-areas of social life in computer sciences. To acquire  qualifications specific to leadership and entrepreneurship.
