B.Sc Honors in Computer Science

Vision

To create computer scientists who can take on the complex technological problems of modern society by building robust software systems, develop efficient computing algorithms, and help machines think and see intelligently, fulfilling the demand for computer science researchers and software developers in Pakistan.

Mission

Provide a conducive learning environment to

  • Impart students with the knowledge and skills in both theoretical and applied foundations of computer science
  • Rigorously train students in understanding software systems, processes and state-of-the-art technologies.
  • Develop critical-thinkers and effective problem-solvers possessing the ability to program intelligent software using modern computing technologies.
  • Advance research by promoting innovative ideas in core computer science and multidisciplinary application areas.
  • Develop students’ interpersonal and team-work skills for continuing professional growth and instill a desire to pursue life-long learning.
  • Prepare students for productive careers in industry and academia to address a wide range of complex scientific, technological, and social problems through computing.

Overview

The number, size, and application domains of computer programs have grown dramatically; as a result, huge sums are being spent on software development. Most people’s lives and livelihoods depend on this development’s effectiveness. They provide information, make us more effective problem solvers, and provide us with safer, more flexible, and less confining work, entertainment, and recreation environments.

The program offers a wide matrix of interesting courses, to help students attain a broad understanding of the concepts, techniques and theory of Computer Science. This program aims at developing the student’s critical professional thinking and intuition. The curriculum provides a balanced mixture of theory and practical experiences at foundation and advance levels making the graduate capable of taking sound professional decisions in the field of Computer Science. After completing the degree, the graduate will be able to assume responsible position as software developers, testers and at the research, development, and planning levels in any organization. The program also provides an excellent foundation for further formal learning and training.

Admission Requirement

  • F.Sc Part I with Pre Engineering / Pre Medical / ICS Stats / ICS Physics with minimum 60% marks OR A-level in three main subjects (no subsidiary) with minimum Grade B (60%) with Equivalence Certificate and must have studied Mathematics.
