Department of Computer Engineering and Computational Sciences
With a curriculum based on Canadian academic excellence, the Department offers world-class degree programs in software technologies and networking, here in Dubai. Through direct partnerships with leading Canadian institutions, our department offers the unique opportunity of a 2+2 transfer program where students can study their first 2 years in Dubai and complete the final 2 years in Canada at one of our partner institutions. We are proud of partnering with Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, and the British Colombia Institute of Technology (BCIT) in Vancouver, British Colombia. This 2+2 transfer program enables students to eventually earn a Canadian degree from these reputable educational institutions.
In the department of Computer Engineering and Computational Science, we offer a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security, Bachelor of Science in Software Design, and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Network Engineering Technology. Throughout each program, the department uses state-of-the-art technologies and labs to ensure that students are trained to ‘hit the ground running’ when they join the workplace. As a prospective student, you will experience a learning environment where excellence in instruction, mastery of technology, and outstanding opportunities for work placement (internships) and research are our top priorities. Courses are taught by high-caliber professors and lab instructors with previous teaching and working experience in North America.
Moreover, our undergraduate students can seize the unique opportunity of engaging in research with faculty members, which primes them to be young researchers and opens the doors for them to pursue graduate studies. Our students have gone on to further their studies in Canada, or take on challenging and rewarding roles in industry, both locally and internationally.
