Programme profile

A degree programme in Computer Science aims to ensure that graduates have a solid grounding in the subject, ready for further refinement in a second-cycle degree programme and/or a first-level University Masters. A Computer Science graduate needs to have a flexible open-minded approach geared to problem-solving, and swift assimilation of innovative methods and techniques. The kind of job he/she will do is also likely to require familiarity with the scientific method.
To equip graduates in Computer Science with the above expertise, the degree programme:
- includes training in basic mathematics in relation to algebra, differential and integral calculus, and probability calculus;
- includes activities giving a grounding in the main areas of ICT, covering design and analysis of software (programming languages, algorithms, software engineering); and likewise a grounding in the main ICT areas of system design and administration (including operative systems, databases, distributed systems and computer networks);
- includes project planning and laboratory work designed to instil an understanding of programming methods;
- entails practice in the English language.
