The Undergraduate Program of Studies leads to a Batchelor's degree in Computer Science. The Department aspires to prepare graduates able to pursue careers in positions of responsibility in either academia or industry, where they will effectively drive the development and application of new methods and ideas. The Department gives particular importance to maintaining links and continuous dialogue with local industry, and we expect our graduates to play a significant role in this respect.
We hope that our graduates acquire a deep understanding of Computer Science, both as a science, and in terms of its more general applications and effects on society. The Curriculum covers the essential practical techniques, together with the deeper principles which underpin them. Our graduates will be well qualified to obtain immediate employment in Cyprus or abroad as IT professionals, or as teachers of Computer Science in secondary education; alternatively, they may choose to continue their studies to postgraduate level, and further pursue a career in either academia or research. Whichever career path they choose, their studies will have given them the necessary grounding to keep abreast of the incredibly rapid scientific and technological developments in Computer Science.
The expected time for the completion of the Undergraduate Program of Studies is eight semesters. This time can be extended up to twelve semesters. A student is required to complete 240 ECTS units in order to acquire a Batchelor degree in Computer Science at the Undergraduate Programme of Studies.
As from the academic year 2012-2013, the Computer Science Department is offering three directions:
In addition, it is anticipated that the Department will collaborate with other departments and faculties of the University in offering interdisciplinary programmes.
