Computer science professionals design, analyze and improve the quality of computer software and systems for a variety of applications, including: artificial intelligence computer vision graphics information management multimedia networking security
If you have studied computer sciences, you will have gained many technical and non-technical skills which are highly valued by employers, from leadership to programming. The increasing scope of computer science means you have plenty of choice in a wide variety of highly specialized areas. With computer technologies playing an ever growing role in all aspects of modern life, you re likely to find your computer science skills in high demand across many different industries. These include: financial organizations, management consultancy firms, software houses, communications companies, data warehouses, multinational companies (IT-related, financial services and others), governmental agencies, universities and hospitals. However, unsurprisingly, most graduates go into roles within the computer industry.
As always, it's extremely beneficial to have completed relevant work experience. You should also consider compiling a portfolio of your own independent projects outside of your degree, which could be in the form of programming, moderating online or even building an app. This will demonstrate to employers your interest in the subject and your problem-solving skills, creativity and initiative.
Examples of projects a computer scientist might work on include: computer networking database and information systems distribution processing systems gaming systems next-generation computing systems search engines software engineering web services The program focuses on the design of computers, computational processes for problem solving, and information transfer and transformation with an emphasis on improving software and system quality, security, performance and usability. The program supports the evolution of the computing and informatics disciplines, the integration of computer and information sciences with engineering, science and other disciplines.
Programme Structure Courses include: Principles of Programming with Java Introduction to Engineering Calculus for Engineers Natural Science - Quantitative Digital Design Fundamentals Introduction to Programming Languages Data Structures and Algorithms Principles of Programming Languages
