Taught simultaneously and the ability to specialise in either area - computer engineering and network engineering provides you with the fundamentals of embedded systems and Internet of computerised and smart Things (IoT).

Computer and network engineers specialise in design, implementation, integration and application of programmable and/or reconfigurable computers/devices or computer-based systems. They also look into their communications or interworking in networked environments and provide ongoing support as technology is updated.

Study will be largely laboratory-based, where you'll conduct experiments and design your own projects.

As a computer engineer, you’ll gain the skills to create new opportunities for businesses by driving new technologies, and devise computer-based engineering solutions to make businesses more productive and competitive.

As a network engineer, you'll have the ability to design, implement and maintain the digital communication networks that surround us.
