The Computer Engineering Department was established in 2003, after consultations between the senior faculty of the University, technical experts and the Vice-Chancellor regarding the need for education in the field of engineering and technology in the state of Punjab. Earlier it was known as University College of Engineering (UCoE), Punjab, India

The university has drawn up a master plan to be executed in three phases to provide technical education in the basic and specialized fields. Three branches leading to B.Tech. degree have been offered in the first phase. The second phase will introduce another three branches namely Micro-electronics, Power Engineering and Bio-informatics and the third phase will include further expansion, and stress on research work and establishment of a research and development centre with the participation of industry. This centre would provide solutions to the technical problems of the industry and would suggest means for growth of industry in the region.

A central placement cell has been established by Punjabi University for arranging the training and final placement of its students. Companies like Maruti Suzuki, TechMahindra, L&T, Infosys, Wipro, SAP, TATA Motors, Google, Facebook, Aricent, Airtel, Idea Cellular visit the campus every year. The cell is in touch with industry houses and arranges on and off campus interviews of its students with the executives of the industry.

Clubs for technical, cultural and literary subjects have been formed by the students. The Punjabi University is committed to develop UCoE as a Centre of Excellence in Technical Education
