BSc (Hons) in Computer Science

Computer science is a fast expanding research and application field that nurtures knowledge and skills for developing innovative ways to harness the power of computing to address problems in almost every discipline and industry sector. Computer science involves both the theoretical and practical disciplines. The theoretical disciplines include the theory of computation, formal specifications of systems, algorithm complexity and principles behind programming languages. The practical aspects involve understanding the concepts, designing and implementing software at various layers of computer systems. Broadly, these consist of the systems layer and the application layer, but each of these is further subdivided. The systems layer consists of operating systems, networks, middleware and support for concurrent, distributed and parallel processing. The application layer consist of tools supporting software development as well as the actual development of software for various disciplines. The programme of study is oriented towards training students in the scientific design and technical application of computer systems in the different areas specified above. The curriculum content is designed with ICT industry collaboration to prepare future graduates to join the workforce equipped with up-to-date knowledge and problem-solving skills. The programme is in line with international recommendations of computing curricula for Undergraduate Degree Programs in Computer Science.
