Training Engineers Who Develop Technologies of the Future

Computer engineering is one of the professions that shape the technologies of today and the future, and hence human life. Beykoz University Computer Engineering Department of English aims to train creative computer engineers of today and tomorrow.

Who is a Computer Engineer?

Computer engineering is an engineering branch that mainly deals with computer science, makes software, test, analysis and designs in every subject that computer can help, and produces computer-based solutions on social, technological, scientific and social issues.

Computer engineers are people who take an active role in the design, installation and development of both software and hardware of computer systems. Computer engineers are responsible for determining the needs of the computer network, evaluating tender offers, preparing and providing specifications in the institution, consulting computer companies, designing computer hardware, working on data to be entered into the computer, working as a system programmer and analyzer, and working on software.

Where Does a Computer Engineer Work?

Computer engineering working area is quite wide. Computer engineer works in almost every industry. Computer engineers are needed in the world of telecommunications, entertainment industry, banking, education industry, industrial establishments, service industry, public institutions, and all kinds of commercial companies. This need is constantly increasing in our age when technology is developing with great steps.

Computer Engineering Education

The duration of computer engineering education is four years. In the first year of education, basic courses such as physics, mathematics, computer programming are given. In the following years, basic courses and application areas of computer science and engineering are included.

Beykoz University computer engineering undergraduate program includes the following courses as well as elective courses:

Physics and Mathematics (Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Probability Theory and Statistics, Discrete Mathematics)

  • Programming
  • Software Development
  • Logical Design
  • Data Structures and Algorithms
  • System Programming
  • Computer Organization
  • Operating Systems
  • Computer Architecture
  • Algorithm Analysis
  • Computer Networks
  • Database Systems
  • Software Engineering
  • Cyber Security
  • Human-Machine Interaction
  • Web Applications Development
  • Internet Programming
  • Mobile Application Development
  • Calculation Theory
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Robotics
  • Parallel and Distributed Computing
  • The program also includes elective courses.

Common Courses in the First Year of Engineering Programs

The first years of engineering programs at Beykoz University are common except one course, that is, it consists of the same courses. The commonness of the first year provides the student with the opportunity to transfer horizontally at the end of the first year without loss of lesson. Thus, a student who is not satisfied with his preference in the selection period of entering the university can transfer to another engineering department without any loss.

The fact that the first years of engineering programs are common makes it easy to do minor and double major programs in engineering programs.

Competence Development Program

Today, the business world expects university graduates to enter the business life by acquiring some critical competencies as well as theoretical knowledge in their fields. With the “Competency Development Program” of our university, we aim for our students to graduate by developing themselves in the basic and managerial 14 Competencies required by the 21st century business world as well as the knowledge of the field they study. In this way, our engineers and architects, who graduate from our faculty, are embarked on the business world, along with the critical fundamental and managerial competencies they have gained during their education life and start their careers with a great advantage.

Internship and Workplace

Internships and work in the workplace are important for computer engineering education. The education model of Beykoz University is based on working in a workplace in the field where the last period of the four-year undergraduate education consists of eight terms. Thus, when the student graduates, he starts his business life one step ahead.


Computer engineers' knowledge of English is important in terms of being able to follow developments in their professions, to work in international companies and to communicate with abroad. For this reason, the computer engineering program language of Beykoz University is English.

Diploma and Title Acquired with  Computer Engineering Education

Those who successfully complete their education are provided with Bachelor Diploma for Computer Engineering and the title of Computer Engineer.

Master’s and Doctorate

Those studying computer engineering can continue their education at master's and doctorate levels. Master's students receive the title of Engineer MSC. Those who complete their doctorate become researchers and academicians. They can specialize in areas such as artificial intelligence, cyber security, data science, robotics, software engineering at master's and doctorate levels.

In Which Fields Do Computer Engineers Work?

The main fields of study of computer engineering can be divided into four as hardware, software, system and network. Computer engineer has a wide range of work such as analyst, web designer, software design expertise, bank management, hardware engineering, control engineering, graphic design and drawing, network and internet expertise, configuration management, data architecture, data analyst, robotic engineering and many more.

Do Computer Engineers Find Jobs Easily?

Computer engineering is a long-standing profession. The need for a computer engineer is increasing day by day. Today, almost every industry needs database design and manager, network security specialist, software developer and many experts in the field of computer engineers. For this reason, computer engineering is one of the professions that do not have difficulty in finding a job.

Who Should Prefer Computer Engineering?

Those who want to choose this profession should be those who can constantly renew and improve themselves, have design skills, have strong logic, who are patient, careful, can be a part of team work, and can create solutions by dividing problems into pieces.

Do I Need Computer Knowledge Before Studying Computer Engineering?

No. Having knowledge about programming and hardware in advance makes little contribution to the lessons to be taken in the first year, it is not very necessary and does not provide great convenience.

Does it Matter that the Department is in English?

Yes. Good command of English is very important in computer engineering. All computer related terms are in English. Computer space is a constantly evolving area. Computer engineer must learn English to follow the developments. Also, those who want to work in global companies after graduation should learn English.

What is the Difference Between Computer Engineering and Software Engineering?

The scope of computer engineering is broader than the scope of software engineering. Computer engineering includes hardware as well as software. Software engineering is the focus of computer engineering on software.

The Future of Computer Engineering Profession

Computer engineering will be a profession sought in the future as it is now. Because technologies that shape the future such as artificial intelligence, data science, robots, smart cities, driverless cars are the fields of computer engineering.
