Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at AURAK provides students with a cutting-edge education that prepares them for the constantly evolving world of technology. Our department offers three undergraduate degrees: a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering, a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, and a Bachelor of Science in Artificial Intelligence.

Our computer labs are cutting-edge and equipped with the latest technology and software, allowing students to gain hands-on experience in programming, networking, and hardware design. Our labs also provide access to specialized tools and emerging technologies, ensuring that our students are well-prepared for the constantly evolving demands of the modern workplace.

Our programs offer various courses, giving students a comprehensive understanding of computers from a hardware and software perspective. Computer Science focuses on theoretical and practical aspects of computing, including software design, programming, algorithms, and data structures. The field of computer engineering combines computer science and electrical engineering with a focus on designing and developing computer hardware and software. In Artificial Intelligence programs, intelligent systems and algorithms are developed and applied to solve problems, make decisions, and process language, all of which are typically carried out by humans. Although there are some overlaps between these three fields, Computer Science focuses more on software development, Computer Engineering focuses more on hardware development, and Artificial Intelligence programs focus on developing intelligent algorithms and systems.

Join us at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and gain the skills and knowledge needed to excel in the ever-evolving field of technology.

Introduction to the department of CSE Laboratories:

Both Computer Science and Computer Engineering students attend practical courses at various laboratories during their studies. These hands-on courses can be either traditional three-credit-hour courses or one-hour co-requisite practical sessions in support of a theoretical course. These laboratories are used to explore a variety of topics that range from low-level to high-level programming languages in addition to hardware-dedicated courses such as microprocessors, computer architecture and embedded systems where students get the chance to build microprocessors, interface them to external components and build embedded systems based on these microprocessors.

CSE Laboratories

Computer Architecture Laboratory (Room G327)

Hands on FPGA-Based computer architecture design and implementation in VHDL software; functional and timing simulation in VHDL; building and testing basic CPU components such as Multiplexers, Counters, ALUs, registers/shift registers, datapath, Control Unit and RAM.
