Programmes

The Department of Computing & Information Technology offers programs of study at the undergraduate and post graduate levels. At the undergraduate level we offer the following B.Sc. programs:

 

MSc/MPhil/PhD

The Department of Computing and Information Technology offers one taught Master's programme leading to the MSc in Computer Science, as well as MPhil and PhD degrees by research in the areas of Elearning Technologies, Mobile Learning, Distributed Computing, Networking, Artificial Intelligence, Neural Networks, Database Systems, Internet Technologies, Object-Oriented Systems, Information Visualization, Programming Aptitude, Advanced Learning Technologies.

The MPhil and PhD are research degrees awarded on the submission and successful defence of a thesis.  Each MPhil/ PhD student must do a minimum of 8/9 credits at graduate level. Interested applicants should consult the Head of the Department concerning available research facilities.

 

Students may register on a part-time or full-time basis. The Board for Graduate Studies and Research offers a limited number of scholarships to students of the highest academic standing registering for MPhil/PhD. Some departmental funding in the form of teaching assistantships and demonstratorships are available for registered MPhil/PhD students not on scholarship.

Most courses are delivered as technology-enhanced courses or through fully blended leaning delivery. The university has adopted Moodle Leaning Management System as its delivery platform and this is integrated with the Banner Student Information System. Teaching in the department is supported by state-of–the-art computer laboratories where students gain hands-on experience in the subject area.
