Hello, is this program "complete"? (In the sense that a math undergrad curriculum without calculus 2 wouldn't be, for example)

For each of the 4 years listed, are all of those classes required?

Also, I didn't see a class in Compilers listed (but I may have missed it). Back when I was in undergrad, a class in Compilers was required (or highly recommended) for CS. I took it as an elective in my EE work, and I found it to be one of my more interesting classes. It was also very helpful later in my career when dealing with strange compiler errors and problems in my programming tasks.

This is computer engineering.
Ah, I missed that. So a little less programming (but still Data Structures and Operating Systems), and a little more hardware focus?

Well I am asking whether this is a well round off program xD

Can you say what kinds of jobs you would like to pursue with this degree? What kinds of work would you like to be doing a few years after graduation?

After the B.Sc, I probably would like to pursue further studies (M.Sc), not sure though, can't say for now.

It's not about jobs. I know that his degree would get me into a tech job, software sided or hardware, that's what I am looking for.
I am just trying to get a "professional" opinion on this program compared to other CE programs.

Yep certainly looks like it. More low-level computing. Comp Arch, DSP etc. That's how I remember it.

This is something you should definitely be talking to a prof or guidance councilor at your uni. It is very difficult for anybody else to guide you on the total workload involved. I am presuming the numbers beside each course are the classroom or contact hours? It looks like it probably is an OK workload, but that will depend very much on the amount of homework profs typically assign, how many mid-term exams, how many extra projects, etc. and etc. Such things will be university specific. Even department specific.

One thing I noticed just casually glancing through. There is little outside of your specific area of study. It's a university, so take a look at that course catalog. Pay attention to the other technical subjects. And pay attention to the humanities. Don't automatically turn them down. But do talk to a prof about the workload. Don't add that history or philosophy class if it's going to mean you have to work 90 hour weeks. But it's likely your best ever chance to take such classes, so at least check it out.
