Computer Science and Engineering

In the 20th century, computer science and engineering broadly meant computer programming, communication and information systems designed and built by computer engineers, and other computer engineering efforts such as special purpose and mission-critical computer systems research and development. In the 21st century, we are experiencing a dramatic shift from the intra-disciplinary, and isolated computer science and engineering of the past century to more interdisciplinary, open, and collaborative computer science and engineering.

Today, computer scientists and engineers work closely with domain experts from a wide range of fields from biology and medicine to sociology and economics in order to design and build human facing information systems. Together, we are trying to understand more deeply how our society evolved in the way it is and how our environment has changed during this time, and most importantly shape how our tomorrow will look. The rapid advancement in information and communication technology has created abundant opportunities for us, the computer scientists to constantly reshape our future at an ever-accelerating pace. From self-driving cars to drones facilitating e-commerce, to 3D printed human organs and to remotely controlled robot-assisted surgery, our future looks intertwined with technology. With a deep understanding of what central role computer science and engineering will play in this continuum, and with a wide range of courses from big data science and information network analysis to deep learning and artificial intelligence, ŞEHİR Computer Science and Engineering Department with its world-class academicians is in a unique position to offer a world-class computer science and engineering education, which prepares you to work in the leading multinationals of any part of the world.
