About the Department

Computer Science, as defined by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the IEEE Computer Society, delves into the fundamental principles of information and computation. At its core, it revolves around problem-solving, achieved through the intricate processes of designing, developing, and analyzing both software and hardware. This multifaceted discipline is dedicated to meeting the diverse needs of society, spanning financial services, business operations, and scientific endeavours. Encompassing theoretical studies on algorithms and the boundaries of computation, as well as the hands-on aspects of implementing computing systems, Computer Science offers a comprehensive exploration of both the theoretical foundations and practical applications that drive technological innovation.

Established in 2010, Mattu University swiftly emerged as one of the nation's youngest educational institutions, strategically positioned to address the burgeoning demand for skilled professionals in Ethiopia. Commencing its teaching-learning endeavours in December 2011, the university houses a dynamic Faculty of Engineering and Technology, boasting the Department of Computer Science. Within this department, a pioneering Undergraduate B.Sc. Program was introduced, tailored to produce adept engineers equipped to strategize, design, develop, and sustain the rapidly expanding ICT landscape in the country. The success of the undergraduate program is evidenced by the numerous graduates who have seamlessly transitioned into impactful roles within both governmental and non-governmental organizations, contributing significantly to the nation's technological advancement.

The Department of Computer Science, responding to contemporary demands, launched an MSc program in the year 2021. The inaugural batch has graduated, showcasing the department's commitment to cutting-edge education. With top-notch facilities and a faculty of industry experts, students benefit from a blend of theory and practical insights. The department's holistic approach includes research, industry collaborations, and community outreach, shaping graduates into leaders in the dynamic field of computer science.
