This paper presents a methodological approach to restructure programs to comply with the NARS-2018, the current marketplace requirement, the projected dynamically changing workplace and international universities' partnerships. It demonstrates a new computer engineering curricula design in response to the updated national needs. In 2018, a new proposal from NATIONAL ACADEMIC REFERENCE STANDARDS (NARS-2018) restructured engineering degrees, including Computer Engineering, among others. A transformation from 180 Credit hours with 165 Credit hours for a four-year degree beyond a first-year “preparation year” in engineering. The new market prediction of domination of Artificial Intelligence application in the industry by 2030. However, there is a lower level of adoption. The slower adoption presents a challenge for a curriculum design as we aim to stabilize the course offering and generate market-ready students while being dynamic enough to produce graduates with knowledge for an active marketplace once AI-related graduates are considered after from the industry.
