About FCE

The FCE is proud to be a leader in computer engineering research and education in the country. The faculty offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in computer engineering. 

The Faculty has its roots in the Computer Engineering Department which was founded in 1998 as a part of the Engineering Faculty offering two programs: Computer Software Engineering, and Computer Hardware Engineering. The first Master of Science program was established in 1995. The faculty now offers a range of undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate programs including software engineering, artificial intelligence, computer networks, e-commerce, and information security.

Currently, we have 31 faculty members in four departments and offer comprehensive programs to over 550 undergraduate students as well as 250 Master’s and 80 Ph.D. students.

Vision and Mission


The International Faculty of Computer Engineering will be a leading education and research institute focused on education, innovation, and collaboration.


The International Faculty of Computer Engineering is an education and research institute serving its students and the diverse population of the Middle East. We are committed to high-quality teaching, state-of-the-art research and creative activity, and collaborative engagement with our local and global communities.


In 1988, the Computer Engineering Department was established as part of the Faculty of Engineering with Bachelor’s degrees in Computer Software Engineering and Computer Hardware Engineering.

In 1995, the Department began offering Master’s degrees in Computer Architecture and Software Engineering. In 2003, the Bachelor's Program in Information Technology was established as well. Thereafter, the Artificial Intelligence Master’s Program as well as Ph.D. programs in Computer Architecture and Software Engineering. In 2008, the Department further expanded its programs in 2008 by adding a doctoral program in Artificial Intelligence. Three additional Masters Programs were added in 2011: Computer Networks, E-Commerce, and Information Security. 

Over the years, as the Department grew larger and larger, the need to convert to an independent faculty became more obvious. The transition was made in 2013 with Dr. Shahram Etemadi being the first Dean of the Computer Engineering Faculty. As of now, the faculty includes 31 members in four departments: Artificial Intelligence, Computer Architecture, Information Technology, and Software Engineering.

University of Isfahan

University of Isfahan (UI) is among the top 10 comprehensive universities of Iran. The university offers more than 70 undergraduate programs and more than 60 graduate degrees in different areas. Students can study a wide variety of courses at Bachelor, Master and Doctoral levels full-time and part-time. The University has thirteen faculties and nearly sixty departments. University of Isfahan includes more than six hundred full-time academic members. The student body consists of 12,000 undergraduate students and 4,500 graduate students from thirty provinces. Undergraduate admission to University of Isfahan is limited to the top 10% of students who pass the national entrance examination administered yearly by the Ministry of Sciences and Higher Education. University of Isfahan has several research centers.

The university was built in 1946 and has been one of the major universities in the fields of sciences, humanities, and engineering. On October 29, 1950, the first series of classes were held at the University of Isfahan. The newly established College of Medicine and Literature College on Shahzadeh Ebrahim Street also joined the University of Isfahan and were relocated in the main campus in subsequent years. The university later offered programs in human sciences, engineering and medical sciences. Related programs of medical sciences were then separated from the University of Isfahan and became an independent university in 1985.
