ITU Department of Computer Engineering

Computer engineering education in Istanbul Technical University started in 1980 as a program under the Department of Control and Computer Engineering Department. In order to keep up with the contemporary developments, Computer Engineering was reshaped as a separate department under the same faculty. All related programs and departments were transferred to the new Faculty of Computer and Informatics Engineering in 2010.

ITU Computer Engineering Undergraduate Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET,, (Criteria: Computer Engineering)
