Bachelors of Science in Computer Science (BS-CS)
The curriculum for the BS-CS program is particularly designed and organized to achieve the program’s objectives and outcomes. Also the course objectives are in line with program outcomes. Curriculum standards are specified in terms of credit hours of study. Keeping in view strong practical component in the computer science education, work integrated learning is taken as the basic theme over which the Department erects all its programs. So the main theme on the faculty is to design a range of programs which provide students with a combination of workplace experience and formal learning. The common features of the entire programs the Department runs are:
Accordingly, the Department follows two step process while designing outline for the courses: following the NCRC course outline as a minimum standard, and availing the services of the subject specialists who have informed knowledge of current industry practice and an awareness of how different workplaces are structured and function, for adding further value to them. The Department is pulling back from courses that do not add value to the range industry or professional clusters. Thus, there seems to be an enthusiastic and growing willingness to share expertise in the hopes of grooming a more satisfactory workforce.
The curriculum for the BS-CS program is in line with Higher Education Commission (HEC) approved curricula and accredited by National Computing Education & Accreditation Council (NCEAC).
Teaching methodology of the program includes classroom sessions and lab sessions coupled with regular presentations and projects, which not only cultivate technical skills in students but also provide conceptual clarity. To improve the quality of teaching and overall efficiency, the latest instructional technologies are used:
The curriculum for the BS-CS program is particularly designed and organized to achieve the program’s objectives and outcomes. Also the course objectives are in line with program outcomes. As is given below, the entire curriculum divided into four following groups:
The core subjects of the program that relate to computing and software building, the subjects relating to math and basic science contribute to making the graduates able to utilize a balanced educational experience with an appropriate combination of theoretical knowledge and practical skills that will make their entrance and advancement in the profession of computer science and will enable them to design and implement solutions for rapidly changing computing problems and information system environments. These subjects also make the graduates able to apply their computer science knowledge and skills to develop a career in an information technology oriented business or industry, or for graduate study in computer science or other scientific or technical fields. These subjects also help the graduates for successful careers in software engineering and to foster among the students the need for professional development, and life-long learning.
