Department of Computer Engineering

The Department of Computer Engineering was established in 1988 at the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad to offer the Bachelor’s program. This program provides students with fundamental understanding of theories and principles of software and hardware systems. The program also focuses on applied areas of Computer Engineering such as networks, database systems and intelligent systems. Students can study either in Software or Computer Architecture Engineering.

The Master’s Program, established in 1995, attempts to train well-educated engineers in specific areas including Artificial Intelligence, Computer Architecture, Computer Networks and software Engineering.

In 2006, the first group of doctoral candidates were admitted to the Ph.D. program at the Department of Engineering. This department offers a research intensive environment for the candidates, expecting them to develop their scientific knowledge in a particular specialty and perform cutting edge research under the supervision of the faculty members. Students can continue their education in Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligent and Robotics at this level.  More
