The Department of Computer Engineering started in July 25, 2011(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 weak or virtually non-existent manufacturing base of Nigeria in particular, and Africa in general. 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 in the Ikole Campus of Federal University, Oye-Ekiti.
Computer Engineering is the efficient and effective integration of electrical and electronics, software, process and intelligent systems. Computer engineers employ precision engineering, control theory, computer science, and mathematics and sensor technology to design enhanced or ‘smart’ products, processes and systems. Application of computer systems in virtually all area of life is becoming very famous and interestingly, it drives every other sector of technology globally. During the coming decades, 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.
