The Department of Communications and Computer Engineering (CCE) was created when the Department of Electrical Engineering was divided into three departments in 1995. The focus of the CCE department is within the areas encompassing computer systems and communication systems, computer networks, and the signal processing necessary to analyse, model, process, code, transmit and decode multimedia data travelling over fixed and wireless networks. Since the Faculty of ICT was set up, the department has given a major contribution in the B.Sc. Computer Engineering and B.Sc. Computing Science three-year undergraduate degree programmes. It is also the main contributor to the M.Sc. ICT in Telecommunications, and a major contributor to the M.Sc. ICT in Signal Processing and Machine Learning, both two-year taught master’s programmes. Moreover it offers supervision to Ph.D. candidates in the research areas of its academic staff. The department supports other university degree programmes by offering introductory study units in the areas of computer networks, signal processing, computer vision, and communications theory.

Most of the academic staff of the CCE department hold a Ph.D. in one of the fields that fall under the responsibility of the department, and all are active in research. This ensures that students following a course with the department are given the best knowledge necessary for their career. This page is meant to provide information related to the department’s staff, course information, facilities, and research areas and activities.
