Course Description

This programme is specifically designed to provide students with:

  • Technical knowledge, skills and background in the design and organization of computer systems.
  • The ability to critically evaluate design paradigms, languages, algorithms, and techniques used to develop complex software systems.
  • The ability to evaluate and respond to opportunities for developing and exploiting new technologies.
Curriculum

DEGREE LEVEL 1

Students will learn fundamental skills required by every IT professional, and the basic understanding of programming, mathematical and algorithmic skills. Some specialised modules will provide them basic knowledge of underlying computer systems such as computer architecture, operating systems, networking and databases. The modules will also help them develop personal and organisational skills, as well as nurture creativity and innovation.

Common Modules

  • Computing & IT in the Workplace
  • Introduction to Management
  • Systems Analysis & Design
  • Fundamentals of Software Development
  • Mathematical Concepts for Computing
  • Operating System & Computer Architecture
  • Introduction to Networking
  • Introduction to Databases

Specialized Modules

  • Introduction to Artificial Intelligence
  • Introduction to C Programming

 

DEGREE LEVEL 2

A broader range of skills will be learnt, in which students will gain better understanding of designing and implementing new software, and solving new computing problems through theoretical and algorithmic foundations. They will gain solid understanding of platform technology through modules in application development. We will further nurture their creativity and innovation as well as independent learning to prepare them for the workplace.

Common Modules

  • Object-Oriented Development with Java
  • System Development Methods
  • Programming for Data Analysis
  • Creativity & Innovation
  • Research Methods For Computing & Technology

Specialized Modules

  • Computing Theory
  • Data Structures
  • Concurrent Programming
  • System & Network Administration
  • Computer System and Low Level Techniques

Elective Modules (Choose 2)

Semester 1 - Choose 1

  • Mobile and Wireless Technology OR System Programming & Computer Control

Semester 2 - Choose 1

  • Imaging and Special Effects OR Network Security

 

INTERNSHIP (16 weeks)

After the completion of Level 2 students will undertake a short Internship / Industrial Training. This will prepare them for a smooth transition from the classroom to the world of Computer Science.

 

DEGREE LEVEL 3

Students will make use of their previous studies and industrial experience to extend their familiarity in the field of computer science and to refine their personal and professional development. Students will move further into the development of advanced programming techniques and algorithms, interface design, networking, and/or multimedia. A final year project requires them to investigate and develop a solution for a real-world problem – they will demonstrate their ability to combine technical knowledge, critical thinking and analytical skills to produce a personal achievement portfolio.

Common Modules

  • Innovation Management & New Product Development
  • Project Management

Specialized Modules

  • Algorithmics
  • Real-Time Systems
  • Emergent Technology
  • HCI & Usability
  • Investigations in Computer Science

Elective Modules (Choose 1)

  • Designing & Developing Applications on Cloud
  • Wireless & Mobile Security
  • Optimisation and Deep Learning

MQA Compulsory Subjects*
