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
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.
