BEng Computer & Telecommunications Engineering



There are only a few aspects of modern society that are not affected by computers and telecommunications. Computer Engineering has ushered in a lot of modern conveniences  from  microwave ovens , mobile phones, high and ultra-definition televisions, entertainment, and automated systems, wireless high speed internet technologies that are controlled by computer systems. Communicating information over short and long distances over wired and wireless networks, and the security of such data, networks, power lines, and electrical distribution is central to engineers who specialise in Computer and Telecommunication Engineering. As the world moves further into knowledge economy, the demand for high level qualifications has increased exponentially. The computer and telecommunications revolution has particularly impact economic growth in Africa and the world over. The course will equip students with the concepts, theories and principles underlying science and mathematics of electrical, computer and telecommunications engineering for a broad range of modern technologies. Computer and telecommunication engineering have the first 2 years common with other engineering disciplines. The students will learn the tools such as computer languages and software, computer systems and architectures, networking and security, wired and wireless networks, mobile communication systems, convergence and broadband technologies.
