Chair, SCE

Welcome to the School of Computer Engineering (SCE)!

Now a member of the College of Engineering, SCE originated from the School of Applied Science that was established in 1988. Recognising the rapid growth in information systems and dedicated computing systems, SCE was formed in 2000 to offer undergraduate and graduate programmes in the fields of computer engineering and computer science. For over two decades, SCE has successfully produced exceptional engineers, arming each with the relevant competencies and life-long-learning skills to redefine the way we live.

Since its inception, SCE has grown significantly. The School is made up of faculty, research staff, administrative staff, and over 2,000 undergraduate and graduate students. The School is currently organised into four divisions: Hardware and Embedded Systems, Networks and Distributed Systems, Software and Information Systems, and Visual & Interactive Computing.

Powered by state-of-the-art infrastructure and knowledge base, the School fosters a vibrant culture for undertaking cutting-edge research to innovate viable technologies and solutions for a wide variety of domains. SCE’s alliances with organisations and eminent institutions, both local and international, allow us to provide a richer experience to our staff and students, thereby further strengthening our teaching and research relevance.

Our vision is to dominate as a world-class institution. Looking ahead, SCE will continue to excel in the teaching of its core areas of computer engineering and computer science, and in the undertaking of basic and applied research in areas of strategic importance. We are confident that our students and faculty will be the main drivers of change and problem solvers in this modern, always-on, always-connected world.

I invite you to explore our website and learn more about our programmes and research activities, view our staff and student achievements, and discover SCE’s enriching experience with us.
