In order to satisfy the persistent and increasing demands for specializing in Computer Engineering, Al- Hussein bin Talal University established the Department of Computer Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering in 2004, and accepted its first class in the Academic Year 2004/2005. Currently, the Department has eight faculty members and has one undergraduate program that grants a B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering.
With its new 160-credit hour B.Sc. program, students accumulate significant background in circuits theory, electronics, networks, communication systems, computer maintenance, computer peripherals and control. The Department's laboratories cover various sub-specializations of the broad field of Electrical Engineering. These laboratories include: Circuits, Electronics, Digital Logic design, Computer maintenance, Computer Interface & Peripherals, Microprocessor and Assembly Language, Networks, and Final-year graduate projects Laboratories.
The Department curriculum provides a great opportunity for local and international students to specialize in Computer Engineering. Computer Engineering students would graduate with excellent knowledge in Computers. Both teaching and research activities in Computers would benefit to a great extent with the availability of state-of-the-art equipment. Modern technologies require the use of Computers in various forms. Graduate students specialized in Computer Engineering would provide the necessary human resources to satisfy the local and international demands.
