Information Technology is developing at an extraordinary speed. Through the application
of information and communication technology, its scope and influence now reaches
all the traditional areas of industry, commerce, government, education and emerging
new markets such as the entertainment and consumer electronic industries. The rapid
expansion of the development and applications of IT has led to a huge increase in
demand for computer professionals.
The course is broadly based, covering the areas of computer science, software development
and information systems, providing a good foundation for a rapidly changing industry.
The relatively open structure of the course makes it feasible to offer new option
modules as the need arises, while preserving the overall objectives of the course.
In addition to the core area of object oriented software development, one can study
a range of other approaches and paradigms, including the development of database
systems and Internet applications. The sessions are practice based and include a
substantial amount of programming work.
