Aim of the Programme

The aim of this 4 year BSc Programme is to give high quality academic knowledge, in order to enable Students to be employed in the Computing industry or be prepared to further their studies in a postgraduate level. The general structure of the Programme teaches the fundamental concepts of computer science in a steady and progressive manner, through a variety of computer science compulsory and optional subjects, which encourage Students to explore the various fields of computing, and study some of its aspects in greater depth and scope. All subjects have been carefully selected to cover as many areas of computer science as possible, while the Programme structure gives Students the chance to study them in greater detail and focus, so as to be successful in any future professional position or in any possible more advanced MSc Programme.
