Master of Science (Computer Systems Engineering)


Computer Systems Engineering integrates few disciplines and specialty groups into a team effort forming a structured development process that proceeds from concept to production to operation. MSc. (Computer Systems Engineering) programme is the integration of systems engineering, software engineering and computer engineering knowledge. This programme will produce graduates who can work in a career related to the field of technology-driven and interdisciplinary or multi-technology in nature. They are able to design, develop and integrate between software and hardware that includes the embedded system equipped with security and software requirements.


Program Outcome

At the end of the programme students are able to:

  1. Integrate and generate in-depth knowledge in the field of computer systems engineering into professional practices for resolving the current research issues in computer systems engineering.
  2. Evaluate, analyze, develop and verify the performance of a solution to the problems that include products, systems, processes and complex technology in terms of usability, effectiveness and efficiency.
  3. Evaluate situations and respond appropriately toward discussion and communication among peers and other.
  4. Integrate the social skills, responsibilities, value, attitude and professionalisme in profession, organization and society
  5. Using the latest research techniques and compile and adapt to contemporary knowledge to acquire, interpret and develop knowledge in the field of Computer Systems Engineering.
  6. Display managerial and enterprising skills to prepare, publish and present technical material to diverse audience.
