Bachelor of Science in Computer Science
Computer science (CS) is the fundamental scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications. A computer scientist concentrates on the theory of computation and the design of computational systems. The program objectives aim at producing graduates who are prepared for careers in CS profession and be able to receive an advanced degree in CS related areas. The graduates are prepared to work for industry or government agencies, or are in private practice, be able to demonstrate competence and are successfully contributing to the UAE computer science and information technology workforce.
Enrollment and degree awarded for the past five years are as follows:
- Demonstrate the highest standards of technical professionalism and ethical practice.
- Engage in lifelong learning and professional development via post-graduate education and participation in professional organizations.
- Attain successful careers and leadership positions in computing-based organizations.
- Drive scientific and societal advancements through technological innovation and entrepreneurship.
Program Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this program, students will be able to:
- Analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
- Design, implement, and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program’s discipline.
- Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
- Recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
