Computer Engineering involves the design and analysis of computer hardware, software, and networks. Thus, computer engineers work on the hardware, software, and networking aspects of systems design, development, and maintenance in all areas served by technology today including government, education, health, industry, commerce, tourism, and infrastructure. Some of these computerized systems are as small as ones found in thermostats or mobile phones and others are as large as ones found in industrial robots, cars, or data centers. As computer engineers. work emphasizes innovation and hands-on experience, they are also involved in building prototypes to solve problems wherever they arise in society. Computer engineers support the information technology infrastructure of institutions and companies, which is a key resource for success today. Computer hardware engineers usually design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacturing of computer hardware such as chips or device controllers. Software engineers, on the other hand, can be involved in the design and development of software systems for control and automation of manufacturing, business, management processes, or mobile devices. They also analyze clients. needs and design or customize existing mobile, web, or standalone applications software to serve these needs. Computer network engineers design, implement, maintain, secure, and support wired and wireless digital communication for institutions and companies without which the core business is disrupted. The Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering program at Abu Dhabi University is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. It has been 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). This ensures that the graduates of the program will be uniquely qualified to design, analyze, and test wide-ranging solutions using state-of-the-art technologies.
