There is a proliferation of computer systems and related products in the economy of Uganda and manifested in the Banking, Health, and Telecommunications Sectors, as well as in the Automobile, Service and Manufacturing Industries.
The Computer Engineers trained on this programme will provide an invaluable human resource for commissioning, supporting, development, and maintenance of the systems. Further, the graduates of this programme, through establishment and creation of Business Enterprises, will provide the much needed base in Computer Systems Business Process Outsourcing for other Enterprises and Organizations whose core business is not Development and Support of Computer Systems.
In so doing Uganda will eventually become a hub for provision of Computer Systems and Associated Support tailored for both regional and global markets.

Hear and learn from those that did the course and what they have been able to do with the knowledge they acquired
This programme prepares students for careers that deal with computer systems from design through implementation. Computing systems are components of a wide range of products such as fuel injection systems in vehicles, medical devices such as x-ray machines, communication devices such as cell phones, and household devices such as alarm systems and washing machines. The work done by a Computer Engineer includes designing computing systems and computing components of products, developing and testing their prototypes, and commercializing the products.
