The field of computer systems is one of the fastest-growing fields of engineering and one that has a very visible impact on modern life. Our course opens the door to a career in computing wherever digital, mobile or network systems are involved.
Traditional computer systems engineering focuses on the engineering and integration of hardware and software systems that fulfil useful purposes. For example accessing video-on-demand, music and live TV coverage, as data can be distributed across the globe.
Now, with the rise of cloud computing and the latest generation of large-scale networked systems, computer systems engineering is at the cutting edge of a range of technological developments.

Mode of Study Options: It is expected that by September 2021 we will have In-person classes and these could be supported by an online element. It is too early to commit to a 100% Online at present as it will depend on the Health & Safety situation and KHDA permissions. We can say at present that if the Health & Safety situation warrants it there could be a 100% online along with in-person classes.
Classes are held at our Dubai Knowledge Park campus from Sunday to Thursday between 8:30 am and 6:30 pm. Additional sessions may be scheduled over the weekend or holiday periods and you should expect to receive notice of these in advance.
You will be actively involved in a range of learning, teaching and assessment approach as part of your programme. These approaches ensure that you are involved and engaged by placing you at the centre of your own learning. You will be required to actively participate in learning activities and engagement with your fellow students, both individually and collaboratively. Faculty increasingly use existing and emerging technologies and your programme will be facilitated using a variety of media and online tools (My Learning on UniHub, podcasts, wikis, etc.) which will allow you access to a diverse range of online resources and learning materials. By engaging in e-learning you will also be developing skills of which are essential for your learning and highly valued by employers. Such skills including flexibility, communication, IT skills and teamwork.
