BSc in Computer Science
The BSc in Computer Science is a four-year programme which aims to equip graduates with a stronger mathematical and technical skills and knowledge to take on appropriate positions in industry upon graduation, and to grow into leadership positions or to pursue research or graduate studies in the field. Graduates of the programme can position themselves in a large number of exciting fields of works, including digital animation, knowledge engineering, software architecture, web design, digital media, and security consultancy.
By the end of the programme, graduates should be able to: understand and contribute to the scientific, mathematical and theoretical foundations on which information technologies are built; explain and apply appropriate information technologies and employ appropriate methodologies to help an individual or organization achieve its goals; Anticipate the changing direction of information technology and evaluate and communicate the implications of these changes to an individual or organisation; and live and work as contributing, well rounded, members of society.
