About the Department
The Department of Computer Science (DCS) is one of the degree-granting departments of the College of Arts and Sciences established in 1998. It is manned by 11 competent faculty members who specializes in: Agri-Tech Engineering; Health and Bioinformatics; eLearning and Instructional Systems; Network and Communications Engineering; and Service Science and Enterprise Systems. At present, the DCS offers 3 degree programs: Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BSCS), Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSInfoTech) and Master in Information Technology (MIT).
The BS Computer Science program includes the study of computing concepts and theories, algorithmic foundations and new developments in computing. The program prepares students to design and create algorithmically complex software and develop new and effective algorithms for solving computing problems.
The program also includes the study of the standards and practices in Software Engineering. It prepares students to acquire skills and disciplines required for designing, writing and modifying software components, modules and applications that comprise software solutions.
The BS in Information Technology program includes the study of the utilization of both hardware and software technologies involving planning, installing, customizing, operating, managing and administering, and maintaining information technology infrastructure that provides computing solutions to address the needs of an organization.
The program prepares graduates to address various user needs involving the selection, development, application, integration and management of computing technologies within an organization.
The Master in Information Technology (MIT) Program provides professionals with strong background in networking, systems development, and security management. It equips individuals with the necessary knowledge and technical skills to undertake positions in the academe, industry, and the community.
The Department of Computer Science aims to:
- Equip students with concepts, theories, models, and principles underlying the field of computing;
- Train students to design, implement, and test solutions in the field of computing sciences, information technology, and other fields;
- Enable students to engage in researches, projects, and community service;
- Develop students’ social, cultural, political, and environmental values to become better members of the society; and
- Provide students with the necessary skills and practical knowledge to enable them to assume relevant positions in the industry, business, government, and the academe.
