Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Computer Science (Top Up)

General

Program Description

Programme Overview

Computing is a dynamic and fast-moving subject that underpins most areas of modern life. Studying computer science opens up this world of opportunity. From management information systems and industrial process control to robotics, the internet and 4G phones, as a computer scientist, you will be involved in shaping the world around us. To be an effective practitioner in this area requires the ability to stay up to date with rapidly changing technologies and the competence to apply these technologies effectively.

Students completing the programme will have learned the fundamental principles of computer science such as the theoretical underpinnings of programming and been given numerous opportunities to apply these principles in relevant social and business contexts. The theoretical components will have been examined and the coursework will have given the students the opportunity to demonstrate competence in the practical application of the theoretical principles taught. The final year project will have provided an opportunity to put into practice the range of theory and practical skills that have been acquired by the creation of a substantial software artifact.

Delivery Model

Combination of lectures, tutorials and workshops in a classroom environment at Informatics Academy campus. Lessons are typically in blocks of 3-hour sessions.
