    What is Computer Systems Engineering?Technology has become a part of our everyday lives. Computer Technology

    involves designing new applications of computers and other devices, such as those

    used in airplanes, digital media, cell phone technologies, security systems,

    intelligent systems and control systems. Earn your bachelor degree in Computer

    System Engineering (CSE) from Arab American University and you'll learn how todesign and implement the software and hardware that makes these things possible.

    CSE degree courses cover both the hardware and software engineering aspects of

    the discipline. During the CSE degree you will gain extensive practical experience;

    including computer programming, computer software development andmaintenance, information security, information technology, and computer networks.

    Computer Systems Engineering are able to be problem-solvers who are qualified to

    design, test, and implement sophisticated solutions for customers in the computer

    system, electronics and manufacturing. They usually gain knowledge of general

    engineering with specializations in advanced engineering disciplines. Finally, weinvite you to have a look at our program requirements in order to realize that we are

    really distinguished.

    oModeling and Simulation (11081558)

    This course covers two aspects: theoretical mathematical modeling and practical simulation of naturalphenomena. Theoretical part will introduce mathematical modeling to describe natural phenomena. Different

    modeling types will be discussed using examples including: discrete and continuous models, deterministic

    and stochastic models, Linear and nonlinear models. The practical part of the course will include using some

    numerical computing environment such as Matlab to find numerical solution for some models. In addition,

    students will be trained to use some visual simulation environment to build graphical interactive models of

    some physical or mechanical phenomenon. Later students will have to program their own simulation tool toimitate some existing technology. Some of the applications that can be covered in this course include:

    animation, traffic, networks, and robotics. [Pre-requisites courses: Programming Fundamentals II
