Ghana Technology University College

BSc (Hons) Computer Science

Course Description

The BSc Computing Science course provides a focussed education for specific destinations in the computing industry. Graduates of the course will be computing specialists with skills in areas such as systems analysis and design, programming, web development, databases, mobile application development and user centred design. Good graduates will also be equipped to engage in research to take up higher degree study. The skills developed on the course are also applicable to a wider range of industries and destinations.

The skills base of these courses generally resides within the body of knowledge defined by the QAA Computing benchmark statement. As well as the technical focus, the course contains content that allows students to explore the social, ethical and professional aspects computing and its relationship to work and society.

In their final year, students are able to select two optional modules from a range of technical computing disciplines, giving them the opportunity to specialise in topics such as mobile application development, pervasive systems and open-source software development.
