Our Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Computer Science (CS) degree prepares students to be active participants in the information revolution. In an industry that's becoming increasingly driven by machine-based learning, the program provides students with a comprehensive understanding of how to analyse and build artificial intelligence and algorithms, and how this can help businesses to work more efficiently and generate better results.
The BSc Computer Science degree program provides an in-depth study of the theory, design and application of computer systems, Artificial Intelligence, and Cyber Security. Students develop the skills needed to design, create, administer, and apply such systems to any field.
Graduates are able to engage in careers in many sectors of the economy such as banking, FinTech, healthcare and Bio-informatics, education, game development, manufacturing, retail, advertising, government, and many others.
The Computer Science program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org.
The Computer Science program is also fully accredited by the National Commission for Academic Accreditation & Assessment (NCAAA).
The CS program has two concentrations: “Artificial Intelligence (AI)", “Cyber Security (CS)", in addition to a no concentration option.
The Artificial Intelligence (AI) concentration allows students to specialize in a scientific area of interest such as Internet of Things, Smart Cities, Big Data, Visualization of Scientific Data, and Robotics.
The Cyber Security (CS) concentration prepares the students with the skills to investigate the vulnerability of hardware and software as well as the measures for protecting against security threats.
In the early years of the BSc in Computer Science degree program, you will take General Education Program (GEP), attributed to the Liberal Arts, which reflects the American style education adopted by all Effat University programs. The (GEP) covers arts and humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and technological studies to help students gain insight into varied critical learning skills, investigate essential branches of knowledge, and develop appreciation of diversity and change across time, culture, and national boundaries.
