About College of Computing

Computers are magnificent tools for the realization of our dreams, but no machine can replace the human spark of spirit, compassion, love, and understanding.

Louis V. Gerstner, Jr

Vision 

College of Computing aspires to be the chosen college of academic and professional excellence in the field of Computing.

Mission 

  • Excellence in education, providing the nation with computer scientists having a core of knowledge allowing them to adapt to a rapidly changing technology and providing industry, universities and government with the next generation of leaders in the field;
  • Excellence in academic and research-achieved by tackling problems of real-world complexity – with the potential for significant long-term impact on the fields of multidisciplinary computing; 
  • Excellence in working with industry, government, educators and the community to advance computing and to serve the needs of these organizations and groups.

This mission is achieved through the following specific actions: 

  • Delivering quality professional education in both the undergraduate program and graduate programs
  • Strengthening existing graduate and undergraduate programs and opening up new ones Engaging in research activities that advance knowledge
  • Building partnership with industry and government to transfer knowledge
  • Extending our services and expertise to the community at large and thereby contributing to social, intellectual, and economic development of the nation. 

Values

In Computing College, we believe that our success rests on these four pillars. 

Leadership in education: From the beginning, we designed our programs to prepare our students to be leaders in academia and industry. Our postgraduate programs believe strongly in research from day one, and we consistently monitor our graduate curriculum to ensure that it’s a perfect balance of rigor and flexibility. Our enthusiasm for undergraduate education is unparalleled, and we are consistently working to make our graduates be competent in the nation. 

The quality and impact of our research: We strive for both high-quality, high impact research, collaboratively and across disciplines. We build things for real users with real-world impact. And we think big, taking risks in our research agendas to support uncommon research areas, to start uncharted research areas, and to dream of projects beyond what a single faculty member could accomplish alone. 

A supportive culture that brings out the best in people: We live by the Reasonable Person Principle, which relies on mutual trust and support among all faculty, staff and students. We take collective responsibility for our students and faculty, through shared oversight of graduate students and faculty processes, like assigning teaching duties. We presume success, and admit or hire only those candidates we expect to excel. 

Diversity: Students and staffs in our college are in full respect of diversification. We believe in unity with diversity.

Research, Project and Community Service 

Computing college is working on different research areas and serving the community in addition to the learning-teaching activities. 

Research

Computing College is working on the following computing research areas through research loving staffs to solve problems in the field across the nation.

Data mining: Automated prediction of trends and behaviours, automated discovery of previously unknown patterns, artificial neural networks, etc

Compiler Design and Machine learning: working on local languages to make the machine understand them for future national projects.

Wireless Sensor Network: Detecting, monitoring and managing disasters (especially draught), precision agriculture, irrigation management

ICT on Agriculture: the contribution of ICT to implement modern and automated systems for Ethiopian farmers.

ICT on Health: the application of ICT to support current health care activities and diagnostics. 

Projects

Computing college is working on the following automation projects to support the academics, research and administrative tasks.

Integrated Library System: computing college instructor developed integrated library system for DBU and now the library is fully automated.

Biometric Attendance Management System: computing college instructors are working to automate DBU students and administrative workers’ attendance and to make the system to be automated.

Compliance Management System: Instructors in computing college are working to handle different complains through automated systems to support DBU administration for faster decision making.

Class Scheduling System (Advanced): computing college instructors are developing Advanced Class Scheduling system to handle courses, class rooms and instructors according to DBU academic calendar through online automated systems.

Human Resource Management System: computing college is gathering requirements to automate DBU human resource management system and make the task of HRM be easier. 

Community service

Our college is serving DBU and the outsider communities through training and consultancy in the field of computing. We are working by providing medium and high level trainings for high school Information Technology teachers. Fr different staffs of DBU, our college is providing trainings on special software. Computing college instructors are supporting any interested students to provide consultancy and training according to their interest and specialization.
