Computer engineering

Foundation

The program got started in English in 2012-2013 Academic Year. The program accepts 40 students to daytime program and 40 students to evening program.

Degree Earned

The students will receive Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering when they complete the program.

Acceptance and Registration Conditions

The acceptance to the program is by OSYS university entrance exam with the regulations determined by Yükseköğretim Kurulu (YÖK). 

International students are accepted to the appropriate program according either to international examination results such as SAT and ACT or to their own high school graduation GPA. Acceptance by student exchange is conducted by the peer wise agreement regulations which a signed by Celal Bayar University and the associated party.

Guest students can enroll to courses which are offered by the program with the approval of the related academic department. The students will be asked to prove their level of English since the education is being offered in English.

Regulations about Waiving Courses

If the student successfully completed a course in another institution, the department can waive that course if there is a corresponding course in Celal Bayar University Computer Engineering Department’s Program and the department faculty approves the content of that particular course.

Proficiency Conditions and Rules

In order the students to graduate with a BS degree, they need to successfully complete at least 240 credits in total according to European Credit Transfer System and have a 2.00 GPA over 4.00. To be successful from a course, a student must achieve at least DD/Successful grade. In addition to these, the student must complete all required internships properly and in the given period of time.

Program Profile

The goal of the program is to provide the students the three features that a Computer Engineer has to have. These features are (i) being able to design computers and computer-based software and hardware in order to solve modern-day engineering problems (ii) possessing required and necessary abilities for engineers related to mathematics and engineering sciences (iii) completing essential preparation for professional applications in engineering.

Graduates’ Employment Profiles

The graduates of the program can be employed as Computer Engineers, Software Engineers, System Engineers, Information Technology Specialists and Research Assistants in banks, hospitals, government offices and private industry.

Passing onto Graduate Level Programs

The graduates of the program can apply to the related Master of Science or Philosophy of Doctorate programs.

Examinations and Evaluations

Evaluation criteria for each course are determined by the faculty who is offering the course and are announced in the course syllabus at the beginning of the semester. The students take at least one midterm and one final exam in the scope of each enrolled course. In addition to these, quizzes, home works and projects that are determined by the faculty in the syllabus can also be involved in the evaluation criteria. At the end of the year, the grades of the students are calculated by the contribution of midterm and final exam grades, in-year activities and participation in the class. 

The department administration informs the Student Affairs about the courses that will not have midterm or final exams. At the end of the semester, the faculty responsible of that particular course conveys the grades and evaluation criteria to the Student Affairs.

To be successful from a course, a student must achieve at least “DD” from that course. If a student gets “FF” or “FD” from a course, has too many absents or fails from a non-credit course, the student repeats that course when it becomes available and cannot enroll the courses that it is prerequisite of. 

At the end of the semester, the course grades are given as letter grades. Letter grades, their point intervals and corresponding coefficients are listed below:

   Letter Grade     Point Interval     Coefficients  

AA 90-100 4.0
BA 85-89 3.5
BB 80-84 3.0
CB 75-79 2.5
CC 70-74 2.0
DC 65-69 1.5
DD 60-64 1.0
FD 50-59 0.5
FF 49-0 0

Beginning from the end of the second semester, the GPAs of the students are monitored. The students with a GPA lower than 1.80 repeat their last semester. In the final semester, they repeat all the courses with grades lower than “DD”. Moreover, with the approval of their advisor, they can enroll to additional courses whose number is equal to the courses that they got “CC” grade and above in the last semester. The students with a GPA 2.00 are considered successful in that semester.

Graduation Conditions

In order the students to graduate with a BS degree, they need to successfully complete at least 240 credits in total according to European Credit Transfer System and have a 2.00 GPA over 4.00. To be successful from a course, a student must achieve at least DD/Successful grade. In addition to these, the student must complete all required internships properly and in the given period of time.

Education Style

Daytime and evening classes of the Computer Engineering program is executed full time.

Department Resources

Computer Engineering Department is located in the Faculty of Engineering and occupies a total of 2000 square meters. The Faculty of Engineering has 3 amphitheaters and many classrooms that are commonly shared by the departments. All the classrooms are equipped with A/C and projectors. Smart boards are being placed to many of the classrooms. The students use the laboratories that belong to Physics and Chemistry Departments in the context of fundamental science courses. It is planned to utilize the laboratories of Electrical Engineering Department for the hardware based courses. In the Applied Software and Computer Science courses that are in the Computer Engineering Department’s program, the two 40 seated and two 20 seated computer laboratories that belong to Faculty of Engineering.

The campus involves a library, Medical Center, fields for extracurricular activities, dining halls, cafes and restaurants.
