Computer Science

Computer Science is the field that studied the methods of collecting, processing, storing, transferring and analyzing information using computers and digital technologies, as well as studying the possibilities of their application. It is the scientific and practical access to calculation and its applications and the systematic study of the practicability, structure, expression and mechanization of the methodical algorithms that underlie the receiving, representation, processing, repository, communication of information. Computer Scientists work with software and software systems. Its fields can be divided into many types of theoretical and practical disciplines.

Who choose Computer Science?

There are some common characteristics that Computer Science students have. At first, they are good at programming and they truly enjoy doing it. At second, they enjoy solving real-time problems. Also, applicants are interested in reducing human effort by doing the same things with gadgets and reduce the cost of production.

Students of Computer Science programs need to think analytically to devise systems and programs, but must also be detail-oriented enough to fix problems. They must be able to communicate with non-technical people to assess their needs and transfer technical information in everyday language.

Creativity is essential for studying Computer Science, who hope to make with the latest apps or technology gadgets. Given the fast rate of change within technology, Computer Science students need to have a desire for learning to keep up with the modern technologies.

If you want to apply to Computer Science program, you must be inquisitive about the world around them since programs and systems are applied to every possible area of life and business.

Why choose Computer Science?

Having a diploma in Computer Science will provide you with a basis of knowledge, problem solving and logical thinking that will serve as a competitive benefit in your future career in any field.

Computer Science is the field that solves the most impressive of world problems, like creating clean energy or detecting cancer. Computer scientists are continually changing the world with inventions and solutions that affect everyone’s life.

Computer Science graduates theorise, design, develop and apply the software and hardware for the programs people use every day.

Computer scientists can work in any industry they want. Problems in science, engineering, health care and other areas can be solved by computers. It's up to the computer scientist to figure out how, and design the software to apply the solution.

Computers Science graduates can work all other the world. A year abroad will supply a student with a deeper understanding of how computers are used around the world, allowing them to experience other cultures and improve language in the process.

Entry requirements for Computer Science

If you wish to apply to Computer Science program, you must be fluent in English and pass proficient language exam (IELTS or TOEFL). Entry requirements for Computer Science programs usually accentuate knowledge in mathematics and physics. A background in natural sciences may also be beneficial.

Undergraduate applicants for Computer Science programs will not be expected to have formally studied Computer Science before university. On the other hand, some universities are against learning Computer Science before actual studying because students can learn wrong programming habits. Also, an applicant must pass one of the following exams: Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, Computing.

Structure of undergraduate study programs in Computer Science

Computer Science programs consist of core courses such as Algorithms, Compilers, Concurrent programming and Models of computation. There are also some current courses that student can choose: Computer architecture, Computer graphics, Computer networks, Databases, Intelligent systems and Logic and proof.

On Computer Science programs you will learn essential components of mathematics and computer science, in will give you a correct foundation for your future career. Students will have an opportunity improve mathematics and computer science skills, so graduates of Computer Science programs have a balance of theoretical and practical skills.

Computer Science programs may include a one-year internship, where students continue to develop important skills and build up a network of contacts. It can also give you commercial skills and show how your degree can be applied in practice.

Career options for Computer Science graduates

Computer Science students prepare for a beneficial careers in such fields as programming, systems analysis, the internet and database technologies, technical sales and consulting.

Most part of employers are IT consultancies and IT service providers. Nevertheless, as most companies use computers to work effectively, they started to employ computer scientists. Now Computer Science graduates can find a job in different fields such as aerospace and defence, agricultural, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, public and third sectors, retail, telecommunications.
