Undergraduate Programs

Bachelor of Science in Computer Science

Computer science is a relatively new discipline. In general, it is a science of using computers to solve problems. It is not about using software. High Performance Computing is the main theme of this degree program. In addition to obtaining general computer science training, you will learn multi-core architectures and programming.
