Computer is a study of the theorica foundations and computation and their implementation and application in computer systems. The major will be designed to produce graduates that ill respond to the information technology needs within the continent of Africa and abroad. There are several reasons why AIU students should be excited about majoring in Computer Science:
Programming and related skills are more in demand every year and the demand for skilled computer scientists far exceeds the supply. These skills are also becoming essential in a wide variety of other disciplines, including almost every area of science and engineering,
Computer science related jobs in Africa are still increasing,
Last and most importantly, computer science is fun. Programming is similar to solving a puzzle. Once you get the knack of doing it, the process becomes fun. However, computer science is far more than just programming.
Computer science is an exceptionally fast-moving field where knowledge is subject to rapid obsolescence and ideas progress swiftly from research to practice. AIU therefore will seek to offer technical instruction that stays on the cutting edge of new developments while simultaneously providing each student with a core of intellectual tools that will never become obsolete. AIU views skills in communication, mathematics, and algorithmic reasoning as central and the understanding of underlying principles as more important than familiarity with specific technical products. Still, direct hands-on experience is essential to mastering these skills and principles. If students are to be adequately prepared for careers in computer science, they should have extensive experience with machines and software that are state-of-the-art.
