BS (Hons) Computer Science

The 4-year BS (Hons) degree program at FCCU is duly accredited by NCEAC (National Computing Education Accreditation Council) of HEC and is complemented by the University’s liberal arts education system. The program provides a solid understanding of the theory and techniques of Computer Science so that upon graduation the students can enter various industries or pursue graduate studies. Our courses are a mix from various areas that reflect the excitement and joy of computing, e.g. mathematics, electronics, algorithms, programming, theoretical computer science, artificial intelligence, application development, software engineering, networks, operating systems, databases, computer vision, human-computer interaction and more.

  1. Academic Education: Completion of an accredited program of study designed to prepare graduates as computing professionals.
  2. Knowledge for Solving Computing Problems: Apply knowledge of computing fundamentals, knowledge of a computing specialization, and mathematics, science, and domain knowledge appropriate for the computing specialization to the abstraction and conceptualization of computing models from defined problems and requirements.
  3. Problem Analysis: Identify, formulate, research literature, and solve complex computing problems reaching substantiated conclusions using fundamental principles of mathematics, computing sciences, and relevant domain disciplines
  4. Design/ Development of Solutions: Design and evaluate solutions for complex computing problems, and design and evaluate systems, components, or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  5. Modern Tool Usage: Create, select, adapt, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern computing tools for complex computing activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. Individual and Team work: Function effectively as an individual and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi–disciplinary settings
  7. Communication: Communicate effectively with the computing community and with society at large about complex computing activities by being able to comprehend and write effective reports, design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and understand clear instructions
  8. Computing Professionalism and Society: Understand and assess societal, health, safety, legal, and cultural issues within local and global contexts, and the consequential responsibilities relevant to professional computing practice
  9. Ethics: Understand and commit to professional ethics, responsibilities, and norms of professional computing practice
  10. Life-long Learning: Recognize the need, and have the ability, to engage in independent learning for continual development as a computing professional
