Computers are becoming part of our lives, changing virtually everything from the objects around us to the ways in which we communicate, travel, work, and play. The computer scientist of today will be the wizards of the future. They shape the future by developing computational techniques, design systems, and develop solutions to build advance civilization. Computer science has now become a key enabler for discovery and innovation in many other fields, making it a highly relevant course of study.
The programme aims to prepare graduates who are technically competent in design, development and implementation of computing systems. Students will be equipped with suitable mathematical background and solid computing knowledge for analyzing, modeling and evaluating computing solutions. Student will be trained to possess strong analytical and critical thinking to solve problems by applying knowledge, principles and skills in Computer Science.
In addition to that, the programme is designed to prepare graduates to possess skills for lifelong learning, research and career development in the area of ICT which includes skills such as communication, team, leadership and interpersonal skills and awareness of the social, ethical and legal responsibilities.
Last but not least, students will be provided with entrepreneurial skill and exposed to real world challenges to broaden their horizon and career prospects. The programme offers 3 areas of specialization in Computer Science for students:
(i) Artificial Intelligence Option
(ii) Software Engineering Option
(ii) Mobile Application Development Option.
