Discipline of Computer

Discipline of Computer Engineering  was established in the early nineties as the Computer Engineering Division in the Department of Electrical Engineering, with the main role of supporting the various programmes offered by the department. Later, in Aug 1999, it was renamed to the Department of Computer Engineering in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, commemorating the inauguration of the institute as a university. In 2008, it was renamed the Centre for Computer Engineering Studies, and there after devoted to fulfilling the national demand for electronic and computer engineering professionals. The centre aims to continuously elevate the knowledge and experience of the faculty members in teaching and research in order to produce high quality research and graduates. In 2021, under Kolej Pengajian Kejuruteraan, it was known as Discipline of Computer.



Among our objectives is to produce electronic and computer engineers who are technically competent as well as equipped with the essential soft skills. The centre qualified and experienced lecturers of different levels whose research interest covers diverse areas of computer engineering including:

  • Image and Signal Processing
  • Embedded System
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Wireless and Next Generation Networks
  • Vision Systems
  • Network Security and Trusted Computing
  • Security, Trust, & Privacy (STP) - Information Security and Trusted Infrastructures Laboratory (InSTIL)


InSTIL research works consist of multiple research grants and projects. Our research activities are focus in multiple areas that are related to Security, Trust and Privacy. The InSTIL Lab has received many funds and requires a postgrad student to assist in the research activities.
