ABOUT THE SCHOOL OF COMPUTING & INFORMATION SYSTEMS

The School of Computing & Information Systems seeks to educate graduates that will be both productive and creative in modern business and industry environments. Studies range from theory through experimental techniques to Engineering methodology. Research and laboratory work complement student class-room studies. These programmes prepare students to operate as professionals at the cutting edge of Information Technology.

The field of computer science can trace its foundation to both mathematics and engineering methodology with the emphasis on practical experience. Using this philosophy, the school has designed a unique curricular model that seeks to provide an increased relevance to the real world. The project in particular expands upon the experimental and design approach by introducing students to the creativity and productivity concerns required for business and industrial development.

The programmes offer majors in Computer Systems Engineering and Applied Business Computing, awarded by University of Sunderland, Mobile Technologies, Business Intelligence and Data analytics, Information Communication Technology and Network Systems awarded by BAC. For those awarded by University of Sunderland, BAC runs the first three years of the programmes and the fourth year is delivered in collaboration with University of Sunderland (UK), which confers the qualifications.

WHY CHOOSE THE PROGRAMMES

The aim of the programmes is to combine an in-depth coverage of computing and its applications to the business environment with a systematic approach to the design and construction of high quality software systems. By the end of the programme students should be able to:

  • 1. Analyze real world problems, design, develop and implement software solutions.
  • 2. Use a wide range of tools available to software engineers.
  • 3. Show knowledge of the current trends in technology across a wide spectrum.
