About Computer Engineering Department

The Department of Computer Engineering started in July25, 2012 (2011/2012 academic session) with a vision to become one of the best in the nation in the near future. The philosophy of the department is to marry theory with practical and hence produce innovative graduates who will be empowered to strengthen the currently inadequate ICT infrastructure and manufacturing base of Nigeria in particular, and Africa in general as well as the entire globe. This philosophy is the bedrock of the Computer Engineering undergraduate of Federal University Oye-Ekiti.The 5-year programme is hosted by the department of Computer Engineering at the Ikole Campus of Federal University Oye-Ekiti.

Computer engineering students study the design of digital hardware and software systems including communications systems, computers and devices that contain computers. Programming is focused on digital devices and their interfaces with users and other devices. An important area within computing engineering is the development of embedded systems. Devices such as cell phones, digital audio players, digital video recorders, alarm systems, x-ray machines, and laser surgical tools all require integration of hardware and embedded software, and are all the result of computer engineering[1]. Application of computer systems in virtually all area of life is becoming very famous. Interestingly, ICT today drives every other sector of technology globally.  During the coming decades, it is expected that there will be an explosion of these automated systems further infiltrating our lives. Already, computing   systems   are   utilized   in   a   variety   of   industries including manufacturing, communication, transport, medicine, service, energy and smart farming
