Undergraduate General Information

Computer Science, Engineering and IT are dynamic and rapidly developing areas as a result of today’s heavy reliance on computer controlled applications. The vast advancement in the use of computer systems and applications has created demand for better services to store, process and exchange information. This has necessitated investing more and more in computer systems, both in terms of infrastructures and human resources. As such, courses have always been in great demand for skilled personnel to develop, manage, maintain and service these computer and IT systems. Our department endeavors to fill this gap by producing highly skilled graduates in the areas of computer science, engineering and IT.
