Core Competence

This programme achieved Full Confidence by QQA

The Computer and Communications Engineering undergraduate programme focuses on computer and communication engineering concepts and applications. The programme provides exposure to diverse cutting-edge technologies spanning computer architecture, microprocessors, embedded systems, digital signal processing, and modern digital and analogue communication systems.

A significant feature of this Bachelor programme is the inclusion of professional courses such as the ones offered by Cisco required by the job market in the Engineering sector. These job-oriented courses have been woven into the main curriculum to prepare students who take up jobs that need special skills. Ahlia University College of Engineering students will hence be able to achieve international certification; an opportunity made available by these courses.

The Cisco Network Associate and Professional Certificates (CCNA and CCNP)  are embedded within the programme. With these certifications, students will be able to build a functional configuration to support the specified network operational requirements. The certificate track is divided into four dependent courses, the first two are compulsory inserted within the third year of the program(CCNA-1and CCNA-2); and the remaining two courses ( CNNP-1 and CCNP-2) are listed among the programme electives for students to choose from.
