Program Aims and Objectives
BSCS Program is committed to create, expand, disseminate, and teach the computer science body of knowledge through academics, applications and research which positively impact society locally, nationally, and internationally.
BSCS program aims to develop students’ critical professional thinking and intuition. The program ‘s curriculum provides a balanced mixture of learning experiences to make the graduates capable of sound professional decisions. As a result, the successful graduates will be able to assume responsible positions in business, government, and education at the research, development, and planning levels. The program also provides an excellent foundation for further formal learning and training. The program is also expected to provide environments to put into practice, the principles and techniques learnt during the course of implementation of the program curriculum. Some of the key objectives of the program are listed below:
- The program should provide a broad understanding of the field through introducing concepts, theory, techniques, and through intensive education/training in focused areas of Computer Science.
- The program should encourage students to develop and use abstract models in addition to apply respective technology in practical situations.
- The program should promote students’ special communication skills both orally and in writing.
- They must be able to produce well-organized reports/presentations/projects, which clearly delineate objectives, methods of solution, results, and conclusions for a complex task.
- The program should provide formal foundations for higher learning and education.
- The program should be dynamic and flexible enough to maintain its body of knowledge in line with the latest scientific and technological developments in the field.
- The program should provide professional orientation to prepare students for industry.
The BS in Computer Sciences Department of Computer Sciences is envisioned to equip students with the next generation ICT technologies, not only to provide widespread applications of modern ICT solutions, but also capable of developing new products and apps to address the local and global challenges prevalent as they emerge in diverse domains of life, businesses and industries.
KU Murree will impart and spread knowledge of Computers in the region to take full advantage of IT based economy in order to eliminate the poverty and elevate the living standard of the society. The students will be trained to develop software and tools/Apps and will be playing a pivotal role by interacting with all the multidisciplinary programs offered at University including Bioinformatics, Microbiology, Forestry, Tourism & Hospitality, Psychology, Sociology, Mathematics etc. This will further extend the scope and responsibility of Computer Science in terms of facilitating the R & D in various domains with effective utilization of computing power. The students will be equipped with Computer Languages, Programming, database development, website development, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, remote sensing and so on.
