Purpose: Computer Engineering Department aims to educate engineers with the skills to make basic and permanent contributions to the Computer Engineering profession. The further aim of the program is to give students the ability to continue their personal and professional development after graduation. This undergraduate program aims to provide students with the necessary technical competencies, tools, and personal opportunities to continuously improve their understanding, expertise, and professionalism. It also supports students' participation in international and national educational projects such as ERASMUS and FARABI, by aiming at international and national cultural and academic achievements.

Vision: The vision of Konya Technical University Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences Computer Engineering Department is to become a center of excellence in computer science and engineering in the region and our country, respectively. The vision is to become a leading and well-known department in many aspects such as the richness of its academic staff, the wide range of specialties, the variety of courses offered, the number of scientific publications and projects carried out. Also, it is to have high-quality master's and doctorate programs, laboratory and research opportunities, and partnerships in international programs.

Mision: The mission of Konya Technical University Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences Computer Engineering Department is to prepare innovative and unique educational and research opportunities, to have the most up-to-date information in the field of computer engineering, to produce new information and to disseminate this information. Also, it is to educate computer engineers who can produce independent solutions to problems to be able to use computer technologies competently.

Program Language: Turkish

Program Definition: Computer and internet greatly affect human and community life. Since the second half of the twentieth century, our life became computer-dependent with the speed of light. We now live in a time called the computer age, the information age, or the internet age. The Computer Engineering Department offers a unique opportunity for young bright minds to develop themselves in the disciplines of computer science, computer software, and hardware. Computer Engineering Curriculum has been prepared carefully by examining its example courses and course contents in Turkey and abroad. This program, which is proposed to be opened, is a department that has been teaching at universities both in Turkey and abroad for many years and has an important place in social sciences in the scientific aspect. While preparing the courses that will take place in the department, elective courses, as well as the basic courses in the relevant departments of the given universities, have been carefully studied. Besides, the content of the exams conducted in areas where students who will graduate from the department can work was also reviewed. Thus, in the program, it was tried to cover the latest developments in the courses and the knowledge and skills that graduates of the department will need in business life as much as possible. In this context, students begin with introductory courses such as functional and object-oriented programming and algorithm design, which form the basis of important intermediate topics such as data structures and algorithm analysis, operating systems, programming languages, databases, computer networks, and the Internet. They also take lessons from mathematics, science, and other engineering branches to further develop themselves and assist their future work. Our program is planned for students who want to deepen their knowledge and expertise on certain topics in Computer Engineering, allowing them to work in different ways according to their interests. These preferences are grouped into five groups. 1. Multimedia Systems Preference Group 2. Information Security and Network Systems Preference Group 3. Distributed and Embedded Systems Preference Group 4. Intelligent Systems Preference Group 5. Software and Database Systems Preference Group. In the last year, our students also receive a graduation project where they can do a comprehensive project of the kind they will encounter in real life. Faculty members in the department believe that neither theory nor practice will be sufficient alone in computer science and engineering. For this reason, the courses are prepared in a certain theory and practice balance to enable students to fully comprehend the topics in the department. In this context, 5 laboratories, such as Computer and Software Systems Laboratory, Network Systems Laboratory, Digital Systems Laboratory, Electronic Systems Laboratory, and Research Laboratory, are available for undergraduate students. Students can use these laboratories for homework, projects, and research or entertainment purposes throughout their learning lives. To obtain a BS degree in Computer Engineering by the Bologna criteria, students must meet 200 ECTS from the compulsory courses of computer engineering and 40 ECTS from technical and non-technical elective courses. The total ECTS required to graduate is 240. Also, students must complete two industrial internships in a computer-related company, consisting of a total of 60 (30x2) working days.

Admissions Registration Conditions: Candidates who will be admitted to the Computer Engineering Department of Konya Technical University Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences are expected to graduate from high school or equivalent schools. If the candidate has a foreign high school diploma, the equivalence of this diploma must be approved by the Ministry of Education. As a result of the Student Selection Exam, the candidates who meet the points and conditions valid for Konya Technical University Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Department of Computer Engineering, and students who gain the right to enroll in the department according to the provisions of Konya Technical University Foreign Student Acceptance Directive can register by bringing the documents specified in OSYM. As stated in Konya Technical University Associate Degree and Bachelor Education and Examination Regulation, those who are enrolled in the Computer Engineering undergraduate department should also not be registered in another formal or quota-limited open-education or distance education undergraduate program.

Recognition of Previous Learning: The previous learning of the students who come to the department with the lateral and vertical transfer is evaluated by the adaptation commission according to the curriculum of the department and the students are adjusted. In the department, the previous education of the students who will do double major or minor is evaluated according to the provisions of the Regulation on the Principles of Transition Between Associate and Undergraduate Programs in Higher Education Institutions, Double Major, Minor, and Inter-Institutional Credit Transfer.

Graduation Requirements: For a student to graduate from the Computer Engineering Program, he/she has to have taken and succeeded in the courses required for the graduation envisaged in the program, to complete the applications, internship, and similar studies successfully, and to have a minimum GPA of 2.00.

Measurement and Evaluation Principles: Computer Engineering Program measurement and evaluation principles are determined according to Konya Technical University Associate Degree and Undergraduate Education and Exam Regulations.

Employment opportunities: Graduates of the department can find opportunities to work in different positions (software developer, software engineer, quality/test engineer, system analyst, system specialist, interface developer, database manager, data communication specialist) in many fields, especially in private or public research and development centers, industry, management and service sectors

Transition to High-Level Programs: The previous learning of the students who come to the department with the lateral and vertical transfer is evaluated by the adaptation commission according to the curriculum of the department and the students are adjusted. In the department, the previous education of the students who will do double major or minor is evaluated according to the provisions of the Regulation on the Principles of Transition Between Associate and Undergraduate Programs in Higher Education Institutions, Double Major, Minor, and Inter-Institutional Credit Transfer.
