Computer Science Department

Overview of the Department

Building capacity in computer algorithm through research and training, shaping academic discussions in computer literacy with knowledge in the growth and utilization of modern technology and equipment for complex computing is the focus of the Computer Science Department.

The department through this programme is poised to deliver competency-based training to ease the setting up of computer system software for individuals and corporate entities for the progression and application of modern computing technology in the world of works.

It is the plan of the department to champion continuous efforts to run a broadly-based computing discipline networking in hardware, software development, computer programming, software engineering, software testing as well as installation, maintenance and repair of computer systems.

These areas provide our students with the technical skills required to solve emerging problems in industry as well as serving as the foundation for research and graduate studies. Upon completion of this programme, graduates are better equipped with high-quality real-world experience through applied tasks to prepare them with mid-level experience in the progression of computer technology in industry.
