The Department of Computer Science is part of the Faculty of Information Technology and Mathematics. It offers a rigorous undergraduate program for able and motivated students who are excited by the influence of computing in our lives and who want to tackle the challenges of tomorrow. Computer Science is a fast-changing field and our program aims to equip students with the fundamental knowledge that enables them to keep abreast of the latest developments and to contribute. The Department offers the degree of Bachelor of Computer Science (Honors) and MS Computer Science.

The BS (Hons) Computer Sciences degree is accredited by the National Computing Education Accreditation Council (NCEAC), which is the authority representing the Higher Education Commission (HEC).

BS (HONS) COMPUTER SCIENCE

The 4-year BCS degree program at Forman Christian College (A Chartered University) is accredited by NCEAC (National Computing Education Accreditation Council) of HEC with the highest ranking of ‘W’. 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. The curriculum offers a holistic view of the discipline. It emphasizes both the state of the art and the essential skills of modeling, abstraction and problem solving that open up a wide range of industries to the students. Our courses are a mix from various areas that reflect the excitement and joy of computing, e.g. physics, mathematics, electronics, algorithms, programming languages, theoretical CS, artificial intelligence, game development, software engineering, networks, operating systems, databases, computer vision, human-computer
interaction.

Learning Objectives:

  • Apply knowledge and skills to the real world
  • Engage in self-directed learning to update their own knowledge
