Due to the emerging field of Computer Systems Engineering and the increased demand of computing in the industry, a four year Bachelor of Engineering (Computer Systems) degree program was introduced at NED University in 1983.
Later in 1986, the Department of Electrical Engineering was designated as Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering.
The rapid advancements in the field of computer science and information technology in late 90's necessitated a separate department for the study, research and development of various branches of the Computer Systems Engineering.
Realizing the importance of the field of Computer Systems in order to meet the challenges of the 21st century, the Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering was bifurcated in 1997 and a separate Department of Computer Systems Engineering was created. Later in 2001 it was renamed as Department of Computer and Information Systems Engineering (CIS) to cover programs related to Information Systems as well.
Undergraduate Level Program
The department is currently offering four years Bachelor of Engineering (Computer Systems) degree program at undergraduate level comprising eight semesters.
Graduate Level Programs
CIS Department offers two masters level degree programs.
- Masters of Engineering (Computer Systems) with specialization in
- Computer Architecture and Systems Design
- Computer Networks and System Security
- Masters of Science in Data Engineering and Information Management
Doctorate of Philosophy (Computer Systems)
CIS department is successfully running PhD program since 2006. Under the supervision of qualified faculty, currently there are 15 PhD students doing research at the department on different research areas related to the field of Computer Engineering.
