Welcome to the Department of Computer Engineering at the School of Engineering Sciences, College of Basic and Applied Sciences, University of Ghana, Legon, Accra-Ghana. As you find your way through our website, I would like to inform you that the department consists of faculty, staff, and students committed to excellence and success. The Department offers a Bachelor’s degree, Master’s Degree, and the PhD degree in Computer Engineering.

Careers in computer science and engineering remain in very high demand and offer not only the comforts of a high-paying job but also the intellectual challenges of a creative and productive profession.

Since 2006, the department is consistently striving hard to offer a high quality, state-of-the-art education in computer engineering at an affordable cost. The department is accredited by the National Accreditation Board of Ghana for its quality education, and it is highly ranked in the nation. We are especially proud of the long and sustained placement records of our Bachelor and Masters students in different multinational software industries and higher education at different top-class European and US universities.

The Computer Engineering discipline is an exciting, challenging, and dynamic one. Computers form an integral part of every aspect of society and modern life. New computing technologies are introduced rapidly, and the Computer Engineering field develops and changes continually.

As a student in the Department, you will be exposed to high-quality inspirational teaching and learning. The staff, passionate about developing and delivering instruction, stay at the forefront of the development of innovative teaching, learning and assessment methods, and they consistently employ technology, including learning technologies for both in-class activities and outside the class boundaries.

Teaching and learning are informed by industrial needs, and a practical industrial dimension is integrated into many student activities like internships and hands-on project work. You will be provided with opportunities to work on real problems provided by the industry, to be taught by Computer Engineering professionals with diverse backgrounds, and to visit business environments that develop and employ information and communication technologies.

There is the provision of systematic and consistent personal support to students to ensure their learning development, which encompasses among others excellent quality project supervision, caring advising, individual feedback on their progress, personal tutorial support.

The department has a Huawei Communication Lab equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for teaching software engineering related courses and computer networks.

We are very proud of our graduates and their accomplishments; they are highly skilled Computer Engineers and IT professionals who pursue successful careers in a wide range of contexts in the competitive global labour market.

I invite you to visit the rest of our website to find information about our programmes, our students’ achievements and activities, our research groups and staff research activities, and I hope that prospective students will be encouraged to join our Computer Engineering Department.

To all our students, we in the Computer Engineering Department would like to wish you inspirational, productive, and successful studies.

Dr. Godfrey Mills,

Head of Department.
