Computer Systems Engineering is a discipline concerned with the design, analysis and application of computers. This discipline combines both Computer Science and Electronic Engineering and covers all aspects of computer hardware, software and their integration. Computer systems engineers focus on innovation; making computing systems faster and powerful; and solving problems. Computer engineers combine hardware and software to design and implement integrated computer systems for applications in areas such as robotics, artificial intelligence, aerospace and avionics, healthcare, Internet of Things and cloud computing. In today’s world, expertise of both hardware and software need to be combined to develop high-tech solutions in all fields of life. B.E (Computer System Engineering) program is accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) and aligned with Washington Accord.
