The department act as a dynamic research department, drawing skilled researchers from the region and reacting swiftly to the changing technological landscape. Some 15 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.
