Bachelor in Computer Engineering

The Current Study plan has 165 credits which fulfils the international and national requirements for engineering programs. The plan takes into account the university, college, basic sciences, and specialization requirements. The plan Contains two electives at the college level to allow students to have wide-spread knowledge in computing fields from other programs. The plan comprises three elective courses which will help students to mould their interests towards embedded systems, hardware security, or computer networks which are active areas for Vision 2030 and NEOM project. The plan fulfils the requirements of both Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (EAC of ABET), and (SAQF) Saudi Arabian qualification framework. The program has been accredited by both the International Accreditation Board (ABET) and the National Accreditation Board (NCAAA).
