Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) in Computer Engineering (CE)

Program Synopsis

ACT takes the view that all engineers are fundamentally designers. Most engineers as part of their work are for example involved in the design of engineering processes, experiments, products, systems, structures equipments, products among others. Our engineering students are therefore required to at the least be familiar with design aspects of the products and systems that result from the end-to-end process.
ACT, in-line with international developments and shift of emphasis in respect to engineering education and training focuses its engineering programs on what our engineering graduates ought to be able to do: know where and when to apply appropriate mathematics; conduct and interpret experiments; design things; work on multidisciplinary teams; be ethically responsible; communicate well; be always ready to learn something new; know what is current and topical in the profession and what the contemporary issues are; and have and use the right skills and tools to get a project done.
The objectives of the Computer Engineering program – which is in-line with the mission of ACT , is to produce high calibre graduates in Computer Engineering using internationally benchmarked curriculum. As such the Program is designed to meet the IEEE stipulations and the requirements. The program is designed to provide our students with the knowledge and associated skills in the broad field of computer engineering. Over the four year program a range of skills-based, generic subjects will be sustained in order to develop the student as a versatile graduate and as a ‘life-long learner’. Students on this program will acquire the basic experimental, design, and communication skills and be prepared for employment in a broad spectrum of computer engineering, or for continued study at the postgraduate level.

Entry Requirement

Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSSCE) or West African Senior Secondary School Certificate (WASSCE) or equivalent with an aggregate score of 24 or better in six subjects including passes in: Three Core Subjects (including Core English, and Core Mathematics) plus Three Electives.

For Engineering or Computer Science Programs, the three electives should include Elective Mathematics and Elective Science (Physics, plus Chemistry or Biology).
