The bachelor of science degree in computer science is a four-year programme that aims at equipping students with sufficient theory to be able to adapt to new technologies and new ideas in the rapidly growing computer industry. Students are prepared to work in the following areas: (i) designing and building software;(ii)developing effective ways to solve computing problems, such as storing information in databases, sending data over networks; and (iii)providing new approaches or devising new and better ways of using computers to address new challenges in areas such as robotics, computer vision and digital forensics.
The first two years are dedicated to computer science fundamentals including data structures, differential equations, algorithms, statistics, and database systems. In the last years students take more advanced courses including electives. The courses includes transaction processing systems, artificial intelligence, computer graphics, user interface, architecture, distributed computing systems, neural systems, parallel computing systems and digital image processing.
