The Bachelor of Computer Science aims at providing educational opportunities for students who are interested in and motivated 
to  work  as  Computer  Scientists,  Software  Developers,  Systems  Administrators  or  Communication  Networks  Specialists.  This 
programme is purposefully  designed  to provide  skillful, competent and motivated graduates  for  the increasing and numerous 
challenging tasks of Computing and Information Technology (CIT) in the country and the Khomas region at large. Students will have 
the opportunity to develop the required cognitive/intellectual skills, practical as well as key transferable skills, and apply these to 
address/solve  CIT  related  problems/  challenges  in  the  context  of  an  organisation,  or  the  community.  Overall,  this  degree 
specifically aims to:

o Provide students with a sound foundation in the fundamental concepts, theories, frameworks and problem‐solving techniques 
of CIT;
o Develop the ability of students to analyse information from a wide range of sources;
o Equip students with the requisite skills to work effectively as individuals and as members of a team;
o Enable students to communicate effectively in the workplace.

The  programme  intends  to  provide  a  diverse  range  of  skills  and  competencies  that  are  both  discipline‐specific  and job‐related. The 
curriculum  is structured to facilitate specialisation in the areas of Systems Administration, Communication Networks and Software 
Development. The programme also intends to facilitate the development of highly generic cognitive and intellectual skills that will 
enable graduates to apply their knowledge and learnt competencies to the practices of CIT taking into consideration international 
generally accepted practices.
