The KU Faculty of Engineering was established in 2013 and is an outstanding group of students, educators, scholars and researchers who learn and work and practice engineering and computer science professions and want to make the world a better place for living. We are a diverse and vibrant group of people dedicated to useful change making and to making innovation and technology matter. Our scholars and students are admitted in disciplines such as Civil Engineering and Electrical Engineering. So far, we have had collaboration with universities from countries like Turkey, Japan, India, Russia and Iran.
This opens a way for our students to connect with students from some of the world’s best universities to tackle and learn how to build and design:
Our Undergraduate degrees are designed for engineers of the 21st century, where students have access to internationally recognized experts. We are seeking to build for the future by hiring the best early career academics and providing them with the support and facilities to learn. We have more improvement plans for the coming year and it will be an exciting year for the University and we hope you can be a part of it.
Obtaining the required licenses to operate in the departments of software, information technology, civil engineering, electrical engineering and architecture from the Ministry of Higher Education, the Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering officially started its work in 2011, and admitted 60 students in the field of software and IT, and the College’s first graduation was in 2014.
The ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) is a multitier, team-based, programming competition operating under the auspices of ACM and headquartered at Baylor University. Furthermore, it is the oldest programming Contest in the world. Kateb University hosted the first ACM ICPC National and Regional Contest in Afghanistan. In the first run registration for National Programming contest opened between 15 April – 28 July 2107 where all teams were from Afghanistan and every team had 3 members and one coach. The contest was held on 4 August 2017. Details of the contest were released after closing the registration date. This contest was not only programming- oriented but, students also learnt many new data structures and algorithms while preparing themselves for the contests. In other words, it was an opportunity to learn, being challenged, and also entertained. Kateb University also hosted the first ACM ICPC National and Regional Contest in Afghanistan. In the first run the registration for Kabul Regional Programming contest was opened between 10 Jul. – 31 Oct. 2017. The teams were from Pacific & Indo-china Peninsula or Asia consisted of 3 members and a coach. The contest was held from 8th to 10th Nov 2017.
