Department of Computer Engineering


Today, employing computers to solve different problems in various aspects of human life has become a necessity in the developed and developing countries, and hence, graduates in computer engineering play an important role in this field.
The Department of Computer Engineering was established in 2007 and officially began admitting undergraduate students in two majors, “Software” and “Hardware”. The department’s graduate studies program was initiated by the introduction of the “Software Engineering” MS major in 2011; the program was later expanded through the introduction of the “Computer Architecture” MS major in 2016.
The department continuously updates its research programs and course syllabi, enhances the academic and practical quality of the faculty and advances knowledge boundaries according to the latest advances in this rapidly evolving field.

Majors and Programs

  • Computer Engineering (B.Sc.)

    To educate specialists capable of solving different problems in computing technology, the BS degrees of “Computer Engineering” is offered at the department.
    The 4-year undergraduate Computer Engineering program focuses on the essentials of computer engineering knowledge, encompassing the organization, design, analysis, programming, application, and theoretical aspects of digital computers and computing systems. The aim of this program is to prepare students for further work in software and hardware technology, either in the industry or in pursuit of a graduate degree. A key theme of this curriculum is the hardware/software interaction in computer systems design, a theme reflected in the balance between computer hardware and computer software aspects in the course requirements. To provide an in-depth study, the program is offered in two majors, “Software” and “Hardware”. During the first year and most of the second year, students take courses in basic mathematics and physics, general engineering, and computational sciences. To provide the students with essential background knowledge of computer engineering, a major related combination of basic software and hardware courses is offered during the rest of the second year and throughout the third year. The fourth year provides a specialized line of study consisting of advanced major specific courses. 
  • Computer Engineering- Software (M.Sc.)

    This MS program focuses on preparing students for conducting research on applied aspects of software development, including formal specification of software systems, analysis and design of large software systems, software development processes, knowledge engineering, operating systems, information databases, and security issues. It also focuses on preparing students for conducting research on theoretical aspects of software development, including advanced algorithms and data structures, parallel algorithms, game theory, computational geometry, and learning algorithms.
  • Computer Engineering- Computer Archoitecture (M.Sc.)

    This MS program focuses on preparing students for conducting research on various fields of computer architecture, including computer networks, design and implementation of advanced architectures for computer systems, VLSI design, Low Power Design, Real-Time Systems, Embedded Systems, Reconfigurable Computing, Electronic System-Level Design, Data Storage Systems, Hardware/Software Co-design and dependable systems.
  • (Ph.D.)

    The PhD degree is offered in various fields of Computer Engineering, including Computer Architecture, Artificial Intelligence, Software Engineering, Network and Computation.

    Research Groups

    Software engineering is a systematic engineering approach to software development. A software engineer is a person who applies the principles of software engineering to design, develop, maintain, test, and evaluate computer software. The term programmer is sometimes used as a synonym, but may also lack connotations of engineering education or skills.

    Computer Architecture
    In computer engineering, computer architecture is a set of rules and methods that describe the functionality, organization, and implementation of computer systems. The architecture of a system refers to its structure in terms of separately specified components of that system and their interrelationships.

    Artificial Intelligence
    Artificial intelligence (AI) is intelligence demonstrated by machines, as opposed to the natural intelligence displayed by animals including humans. AI research has been defined as the field of study of intelligent agents, which refers to any system that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of achieving its goals.

    To conduct graduate study and research on various aspects of computer engineering, the department is equipped with a substantial number of specialized research laboratories directed by faculty members. A number of these laboratories are listed below.
    Natural language processing (NLP) – Dr. Mirrosahndel
    Enterprise architecture (EA) – Dr. Ahmadifar
    Internet of Things and Smart Systems Laboratory (IoTSSL) – Dr. Salehi
