Dean: Ahmed Abdelgadir Suliman – PhD, Electrical Engineering


  • Department of Computer Engineering.
  • Department of Telecommunications.

Our vision is to be an active, leading participant in the development of the engineering practice in Sudan. The faculty is committed to offering academic programmes that reflect the accelerating advances in science and technology.

Our accredited electronic and computer engineering programmes provide students with the opportunity to pursue careers that are integral to modern life, providing skills and creating possibilities for business development around the globe. Our faculty continues to explore new avenues to empower prospective engineers while pursuing research opportunities to equip students with practical applications of modern technological concepts. Currently, the faculty offers degrees in two major fields of study, which are telecommunications and computer engineering.

a. Telecommunications Engineering

Telecommunications engineering is a discipline that covers a wide spectrum of areas with a number of subfields such as analogue communication, digital communication, satellite communication, optical fibre communication, and mobile and wireless communication. Telecommunications engineering deals essentially with the implementation of applications, principles and algorithms developed within many related fields; for example, radio engineering, telecommunications, signal processing, systems engineering and many others.

The job of a telecommunications engineer involves designing and building systems and software for all telecommunications and computing devices. He/she has the ability to solve communication-system problems, databases, networks and computer-related security issues with an excellent efficiency. Moreover, he/she should be able to devise new and better ways of using telecommunication and control systems and addressing particular challenges in areas as diverse as robotics, computer vision or digital forensics.

b. Computer Engineering

Computer engineering deals with the theoretical foundations of information and computation. It is about using computers to solve problems effectively. Our students will graduate with a firm grasp of software, networks, computer architecture, formal methods, algorithms and data structures, databases, distributed services, virtualisation, mobile computing and artificial intelligence. Skills learnt can be used in varied fields, such as business and finance, engineering, telecommunications, as well as biological, physical and earth sciences.
