Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering

General

Program Description

Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering


Computer Engineering is the discipline that embodies the science and technology of design, construction, implementation, and maintenance of software and hardware components of modern computing systems and computer-controlled equipment. Although computer engineering has been traditionally viewed as a combination of computer science and electrical engineering, it has evolved over the past three decades as a separate but closely related discipline. The Computer Engineering Major offers its student a curriculum solidly grounded in the theories and principles of computing, mathematics, science, and engineering and applies those theories and principles to solve technical problems through the design of computing hardware, software, networks, and processes.


Career Opportunities


Increasingly, computer engineers are involved in the design of computer-based systems to address highly specialized and specific application needs, particularly in the computer, aerospace, telecommunications, power production, manufacturing, defense, and electronics industries. A wide array of complex technological systems, such as power generation and distribution systems and modern processing and manufacturing plants, rely on computer systems designed and developed by computer engineers.

Admissions Requirements


For Regular Applicants


Applicants must complete high school (M.6) certificate or its equivalent as issued by the Ministry of Education, Thailand.
Applicants must demonstrate English competence: a TOEFL score of 79 or above, an IELTS (academic band) score of 6.0 or above, a SAT1 score of 1650 with a Math score of at least 580.


Applicants are required to sit for a written examination including English (ITP TOEFL and Writing), Mathematics, General Science and Current Affairs. If they are successful with the written exam, they will be invited for an interview.


Note: Applicants whose English language skills are not sufficient for immediate acceptance may be advised to study in the Preparation Center for Languages and Mathematics (PC). Applicants who successfully complete the PC requirements will be eligible for acceptance to the regular MUIC study program in the following trimester. MUIC also offers an “Intensive English Program” course for students preparing to take the college’s English entrance examination.


For International Applicants


Interested international candidates may apply 3 times a year through the Admission Section. Applicants must have already completed their high school education or equivalent to high school as issued by the Ministry of Education, Thailand.


If the school certificate/diploma is not in the English language, a certified English translation of the document must be arranged and forwarded to the Ministry of Education in Thailand to see if it is acceptable.


Candidates who are not native English speakers have to submit a TOEFL score (IBT score of at least 79 with a score of at least 25 in writing) or IELTS score (6.0 or above with writing 6.0) or SAT score (1,650 with a Math score of 580 or above).


Once candidates are officially accepted as full-time students, they are required to sit for English writing and Math placement tests in order to see which level they can register for.

In March of 1986, the Mahidol University Council officially endorsed the formation of a new international bachelor degree program, the first of its kind at a public university, designated at that time as the International Students Degree Program (ISDP). Six months later, in September of l986, the program welcomed its first class of students. The beginning was a modest one – as most beginnings usually are. The facilities were situated on the second floor of the MU Social Science and Humanities Building, with 45 students, two full-time and 20 part-time instructors, a four-member support staff, seven major offerings in the Sciences and Travel Industry Management – and an abundance of hope and determination. During its initial years, ISDP grew and flourished, so much so that it eventually required its own separate facilities. In 1992 ISDP officially dedicated its new building, which accommodated 486 students, and introduced two additional majors in Business Administration and Food Science and Technology. The year 1996 constituted an important milestone. With approval from the Mahidol University Council, ISDP was officially designated Mahidol University International College (MUIC), giving it the full weight and stature of a faculty. Two years later, a six-story complex was completed in order to accommodate over 1,000 students. A new managerial style was introduced, in addition to an expansion of academic offerings, additional internships, including the Salaya Pavilion Hotel and Training Center, a pre-college program and the formation of offices that addressed both student and alumni needs.
 Over the ensuing years, there were additional developments in the college’s academic, physical and social landscapes: an ever-increasing student enrollment, new major programs, the promotion of a vibrant student exchange program and a further expansion of its physical facilities, including an eight-story extension. After 26 years, MUIC currently offers 19 undergraduate majors and 22 minors in the Arts, Sciences, and Management, along with two master degree programs, for approximately 3,200 students. Furthermore, the college is anticipating even greater student enrollments in the future. It has recently commissioned the construction of a new building, to be completed in 2015. With this new addition, MUIC will be able to accommodate up to 4,000 students. Meeting the challenges of our new world order will require continued resilience and innovation. The journey that began over two decades ago is far from over as Mahidol University International College continues to commit its full resources and energies to the pursuit of academic excellence.
