Computer science is one of the fastest growing fields in recent decades. They include the understanding of hardware and software and their use for information processing, as well as the study of algorithms, the use and processing of databases, the design and modelling of computer and network systems, and the creation of artificial intelligence. The scope of the computing field extends from small processor components, to programming languages, computer simulations, visuals and graphics, the connectivity of devices and objects on a global internet network, to cloud computing and virtual reality.

What is taught?

Computer science is a discipline with many overlapping subjects such as programming, mathematics, information technology (IT), logic, engineering. At its core, software development serves to solve complex problems in heterogeneous fields such as electronics, physics, biology, chemistry, finance, psychology, etc. In information technology, the emphasis falls on information transfer and storage, while software engineering combines programming with the use of engineering techniques and skills. Along with some of the most used programming languages – C#, Java, JavaScript, Python, HTML, CSS, Oracle, students also have the option to study subjects such as Cyber Security, Open Source Software Development, Programming for Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence, Web Programming. Typically in the first year of study, the programme includes compulsory modules, while as students progress into the upper years, they are offered more flexibility to choose their major or specialisation in the field, with internships often compulsory.
