Welcome from the Head of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering
I warmly welcome you on behalf of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. Our exciting, rich and dynamic field has been pushing the boundaries of what is possible through the discovery of new ideas and the building of innovative systems and tools that have changed our lives. Our field has been pushing the envelope of almost all other disciplines, which use computing as a fundamental means of inquiry and tool for discovery. Computer science and engineering offers exciting, intellectually challenging, and rapidly growing career opportunities. It is the heart of where the action is: whether this means intelligent game playing, mobile applications, smart robots, cloud computing, data security, social networks, or bioinformatics.
The department offers courses and degree programs that provide students with the knowledge, ability, and skill to become innovators and leaders who are able to contribute to the aspirations of society. It offers programs that lead towards the B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. Our study programs are complemented and enhanced by research opportunities for our students, who are encouraged to do research at all levels. With current external research funding that exceeds US $15M, and a rich distinguished network of industrial and research partners, we are able to run leading-edge high-impact research programs. Our department is committed to sharing knowledge and expertise to benefit the country, the region, and the world whilst inspiring people to engage in computing fields.
Through this website, you can find information about our academic programs, degree program options, faculty, and research projects. If you are a perspective scholar or a perspective student, I hope that you will consider joining us. If you are a current student, parent, or prospective collaborator, we, at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, look forward to working with you to make your engagement with our department a successful and pleasant experience.
Prof. Sebti Foufou, Head
Department of Computer Science and Engineering
