Why Study our Programme?

Computer Science is vital to the economy, in the Sultanate of Oman, UK and worldwide. From online retailing and oil and gas sector to satellite navigation and computer games, intelligent computer systems affect every part of our lives.

BSc(Hons) Computer Science shows you how to analyse complex problems, design algorithms to solve them, and write programs that put these solutions into practice.

This future-facing programme enables you to combine analytical knowledge and technical skills, applying theory to practice. You’ll also develop computer systems and software solutions to tackle real-world industry problems.

What you will be studying?

On the course, you’ll choose to study one of three specialist pathways, in either AI, Smart Devices or Computer Science.

The AI pathway will give you the understanding to sort fact from fiction. All the modules share a perspective of AI as a practical subject. You’ll use problem-based learning, informed by collaborative research with governments and industry.

By the end of the level 1, you’ll be equipped with an understanding of the basic concepts, uses and processes of contemporary AI.

The Smart Devices pathway will show you how to integrate electronic appliances with computing. If you choose to specialise in Smart Devices, you’ll build a broad skillset, spanning various digital industries.

From level 2, you can tailor the content to reflect your interests and career plans.

Final year modules will give some of our graduates the opportunity to develop advanced skills in AI and Data Analytics.

Where can it take you?

On course completion, all specialist pathway students will graduate with a BSc (Hons) Computer Science/ BSc(Hons) Computer Science[Artificial Intelligence]/ BSc(Hons) Computer Science[Smart Devices] degree. So whichever pathway you choose, you’ll leave us prepared for a career in industry or research.

Depending on your specialist pathway, you’ll have the chance to develop advanced skills in AI and Data Analytics in your final year. These skills are highly sought after by employers. So you’ll be ready to meet the skills shortage and begin a satisfying career when you graduate.

You’ll also gain relevant experience in AI through year-long projects and advanced research modules. Learn to deliver solutions to practical and ethical issues when applying AI in the real world, transforming people’s lives.

We now use digital technologies in every area of life, so you’ll find digital jobs across all industries and sectors. Smart Devices also provide a foundation for students to be successful in these fields. Employers will expect future workforces to have a range of abilities across media, technology and digital marketing, to name a few. A successful graduate can start career as a software developer or engineer, depending on the sector. You could become a software engineer, web and software developer, business analyst, IT project manager or an IT consultant.
