Computer Engineering

Is This For You?

If you like the idea of building gadgets, making them do what you want with your own software, connecting them to the Internet and the Cloud and controlling them with your own mobile apps, then this is where you can learn how things work and how to apply your imagination to improve and invent the things that we all use in our daily lives.

When it comes to employment, there is a growing demand for graduates with this mix of hardware and software skills, including hardware-software integration. This mix of skills is needed for the ever expanding world of mobile systems, from app development to the technology of the networks behind it all.


At ITB you can study Computer Engineering, with a later specialisation in Mobile Systems and Mechatronic Engineering. These courses are offered at Higher Certificate, Ordinary Degree and Honours Degree levels.


Graduates of these courses can work on Mobile Systems, in Software Engineering, Electronics Design, the Manufacturing sector, Automation and Test Engineering amongst others. Students will be equipped to apply for a wide range of high technology jobs upon completion of the course.


If you enjoy taking devices and components apart and putting them back together, figuring out how they work and how they can work better and you want to get a qualification to be able to build and invent then this is the right path for you.


All of these courses are designed to give you a sound theoretical knowledge across a mix of disciplines together with strong practical skills. This means you can move directly into work or go on to further study. You will learn how to work effectively, both on your own and as part of a team and will work on specially designed projects that bring together the various subjects in your course.

All of this is done with modern, well-equipped labs, easy online access to course materials, lectures and assessment as well as on-site support from enthusiastic staff willing to spending time working with our students.

“I chose a degree in Computer Engineering because it integrates several fields of engineering.

A computer engineering student will learn electronic, electrical, hardware and software engineering along with computer programming, networking, embedded systems and IoT Technologies. These are invaluable skills to equip in preparation for modern industry.

The facilities at ITB are great. The lecturers are down to earth and always helpful. The learning curve can be steep at times but ultimately rewarding.

The best thing about being an ITB student is the sense of community in the college. If you are interested in computers, gadgets, technology and electronic devices, this is the course for you.

It is a rewarding and beneficial qualification to pursue and ITB  is more than equipped to ensure you get the best education in this particular discipline.”
