Department of Computer Science
In an IT-driven world, the knowledge of computer and its nUTMErous applications has become necessary in a developing country like Nigeria. A degree in Computer Science should equip the graduate with the necessary skills to function in the modern world.
The programme is designed to
The entry requirements shall be at least credit level passes in five subjects including English Language, Mathematics, Physics to form the core subjects with credit in any other two relevant science subjects, at the Senior Secondary School Certificate or its equivalent. In addition, an acceptable pass in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), with relevant subject combination is required for Admission into 100 Level.
Candidates with two A level passes (graded A-E) at the GCE Advanced Level in relevant subjects (Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics) may be admitted into 200-level.
To graduate, a student must pass a minimum of 120 units including all compulsory courses.
a) Regime of Subject Knowledge
Each institution providing degree programmes in Computer Science is free, within the context of university autonomy and academic freedom to decide on the content, nature and organization of its courses and modules. However, it is
expected that all programmes will ensure that students are conversant with the core areas of computer science:
b. Competencies and Skills
Students are expected to develop a wide range of different abilities, dynamism and skills. These may be divided into three categories, viz:
c. Behaviourial Attitudes
General skills relating to non-subject specific competencies, communication, interpersonal, organization skills.
Graduates of Computer Science are expected to have the ability to apply knowledge and skills to solving theoretical and practical problems in Computer Science, development of relevant ICT for national development and societal needs.
