Software and Informatics Engineering Department (SIE)
The Software an Informatics Engineering Department (SIE) established in 2000 with accepting just 20 students. The Engineering College was the first college to start this prestigious branch. The number of students gradually increased year by year, so now we have over 450 students for BSc. courses. In 2002 the department has started to open high diploma courses, afterwards in 2006 MSc. courses started to be given to postgraduate students.
The department act as a dynamic research department, drawing skilled researchers from the region and reacting swiftly to the changing technological landscape. Some 30 researchers are currently working within the department, including academic staff, research staff, and research students. A part of these research activities, the department has a well-known annual fair named SEDAF.
Software Engineering Department Fair (SEDAF):
The exhibition aims to focus attention on the extensive research activities undertaken within the software and to give our students the opportunity to present their project to the Kurdistan’s community. The entire projects are designed and proposed for both private and public sectors use, and hence the government institutions in particular will get benefit in implementing these projects in order to provide services to the citizens effectively and efficiently.
There are different professional software projects for presentation in the exhibition along with various posters every year. The projects are more feasible for KRG’s institutions.
