Mission

The primary goal of the Computer Science programme is to prepare the graduates to understand the field of computing and engineering with a global view of the academic discipline and profession. The programme strives to achieve this through a broad and coherent coverage of the computer science disciplines by exposing our students to the basic theories as well as advanced high-level concepts and system integration skills. We also expect our students to be sympathetic to ethical, professional, as well as societal issues associated with information technologies. The programme prepares our students to be independent thinkers who possess good problem-solving skills and the ability of self-learning and the desire for life-long learning.

 

Programme Objectives

At the end of the course of studies, students will have
