Programme Description

Computer science is the study of computer software whereas computer engineering is the study, design and analysis of computer hardware and software. Computer science differs from computer engineering in that, for the computer scientist, strategies for the theory of software development are of primary importance and for computer engineers, computer hardware is a principal concern and, in creating software, they tend to focus more on applying and merging techniques. The programme aims at providing firm grounding in basic concepts of both Computer Science and Engineering disciplines and related courses to meet the requirements for the Information, and Communication Technology (ICT) arena and allied industries.


Programme Admission Requirement BSc
For admission, candidates must have:

1. Passes in THREE CORE SUBJECTS at Senior High School (SHS) LEVEL in English, Mathematics, and Integrated Science AND passes in THREE SCIENCE ELECTIVES in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.
OR
2. Passes in the GCE ORDINARY-LEVEL in English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and GCE ADVANCED Level passes in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.
