The Computer Engineering (CEN) Study Program was established in September 1987 under the Faculty of Computer Studies and since 2011 been under the Faculty of Engineering BINUS UNIVERSITY. The CEN Study Program was re-accredited Grade “A” by the National Board of Higher Education (BAN-PT) in 2018 and also accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org in 2015.
The CEN Study Program has various alumni who have gone on to take part in various domains of the business industry. The CEN Study Program was founded to meet the demand for knowledge about computer systems encompassing computer hardware, software, and computer networks.
The Institute of Electrical & Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), well-established and world-famous organizations, use the following definition: “Computer Engineering embodies the science and the technology of design, construction, implementation, and maintenance of the electronics and the software components of modern computing systems and computer-controlled equipment,” and its graduates stated: “Computer Engineers are solidly grounded in the theories and principles of computing, mathematics, and engineering; and apply these theoretical principles to design electronic circuits, software, networks, and computerized equipment and instruments to solve problems in diverse application domains.”
Hence, graduates of the CEN Study Program will enjoy the knowledge of computer software and intelligent devices. This will allow graduates to contribute to any application wherever computers are used.
The development of Information Technology and the need for experienced computer systems professionals are behind the innovative CEN Program. Currently, the CEN Study Program covers expertise in understanding to build completed computer system solution that consists of electronics and software, ranging from communication system to intelligent embedded systems.

Vision and Mission
A world-class computer engineering study program that focuses on the development of smart systems and continuously contributes to fostering and empowering society for the benefit of mankind.
The mission of the Computer Engineering Department is to contribute to the global community through the provision of world-class education by:
- Educating BINUSIAN to meet global standards.
- Conducting high-impact research to solve the nation’s problems.
- Providing a vibrant environment for teaching and research.
- Fostering BINUSIAN as a lifelong learner in order to adapt to rapid changes.
- Empowering BINUSIAN to use their knowledge to serve and build the nation.
The objectives of the program are:
- Excel in methodological and computational skills to solve problems creatively within their professional and communities.
- Lead the team and professionally responsible for to benefit of the organizations, society, and nation.
- Sustainably update their knowledge by engaging in life-long learning to adapt to rapidly changing work environments and to meet evolving global requirements.
After completing the study, graduates are:
- Able to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics;
- Able to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors;
- Able to communicate effectively with a range of audiences;
- Able to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts;
- Able to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives;
- Able to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions;
- Able to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
Prospective Career of the Graduate
At the career level, computer engineering offers two principle paths – hardware and software engineering – that support smart engineering and multiple subspecialties or areas of concentration, such as:
- Embedded System
- Intelligence & Robotics
- Computer Network & Network Security
- Cloud Technology
