Detailed course information

  • Computer Systems and Design: The course explores the interfaces, modules and other intricacies of computer-based product development.
  • Programming: It outlines the kinds of programming languages used in the development of computer systems, including logic-based. object-oriented, web, concurrent and procedural programming languages.
  • Design and Analysis of Systems: It discusses quality control and optimisation processes often applied to computer systems.
  • Data Structures: It covers the data organization and storage format that enables efficient access and modification to information on computer systems,
  • Visual Programming: This involves a programming language that uses graphical elements and figures to develop a program rather than the use of text.
  • Computer Architecture: It details how a set of software and hardware technology standards interact to form a computer system.
  • Computation Theory:  The theory is the branch of computer science that defines how efficiently problems can be solved on a model of computation, using an algorithm.
  • Operating Systems: The base software that supports a computer's basic functions, such as scheduling tasks and controlling peripherals.
  • Artificial Intelligence: This explores the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.
  • Algorithms: Algorithms are step-by-step procedures for conducting specified actions by a computer.
