Computer Science is the subject of experimentation and engineering that form the foundation for the design and function of information processing systems. It is the scientific approach of computation and a systematic study of feasibility, structure, expression and mechanization that enables the efficient and effective access to information systems. To follow this vision, the undergraduate programs in Computer Science and Information Technology are being offered.
The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BSCS) and the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology(BSIT) programs are being offered at Muhammad Nawaz Shareef University of Agriculture since 2014. The department of Computer Science is dedicated to train and produce quality graduates who can utilize the comprehensive knowledge in various fields of Computer Science and Technology. These programs provide an in-depth theoretical as well as practical knowledge that will enable the students to apply their skills in the emerging areas of computer sciences.
The curriculum of BS(CS) and BS(IT) programs is designed to train the students with advanced knowledge, research and development skills in Software Engineering, Computer Programming, Computer Networks, Information and Network Security, DBMS and Operating System.
The goal of this department is to provide high quality education to develop human resource with sound knowledge in Computer Science and Information Technology. The department will enable the students to:
- Enlighten with innovative theoretical and practical computer science knowledge.
- Substantial exposure to modern themes in Software Technology, Computer Networks, Computer Architecture, Computer Vision, Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Data Sciences.
- Extend research in computer science and its allied fields.
- Provide skilled professionals to IT industry.
The mission of computer science degree programs is to prepare technically strong students in computing and capable of working both in core and interdisciplinary areas. Students will be trained to contribute effectively towards sustainable economic growth and community development. This can be witnessed by their career satisfaction, role in management and leadership level in respective professions.
