• The Department of Computer – Embedded Systems of the Faculty of Electronics – Telecommunications was formed on the basis of inheritance and intensive development in the fields of data acquisition and processing (based on hardware and software) such as the design and application of embedded systems (based on microprocessor, microcontroller, DSP or FPGA), digital signal processing, digital IC and SoPC design and application programming.
  • The department’s training orientation is in line with the state of the art and future technology trends, so graduates looking for jobs or studying to higher levels have many advantages.

Education program

  • The education program is formed based on the foundations of computer hardware, data processing techniques, data transmission and programming techniques. This is also a prominent feature of Computer – Embedded Systems major compared to other universities with strong support from Electronics and Telecommunication background.
