Welcome to the Department of Computer Science (CS) at the Nile University of Nigeria, Abuja established in 2009. At the undergraduate level, it currently offers program leading to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Computer Science. The program prepares students equally well for graduate work or professional positions in the computing and information technology fields and provides a concentrated approach to computer science, while encourages students to combine computer science with studies in another field. The CS program is oriented towards students with interest in applying computing concepts and information technology theories to practical applications in required fields.
Since Computer Science applies to so many facets of modern life, students in of the program are strongly encouraged to use their elective courses to pursue interests in other fields. So the CS Department also may offer joint courses or degree programs with various other departments.
The Master of Science program in Computer Science (CS) is designed to prepare students to be scholars, to develop the students’ capacities to understand issues and problems at the frontiers of knowledge and to make significant contributions to knowledge. The program’s overall educational goals are to provide advanced training in Computer Science research, to develop new knowledge in science, and to disseminate the knowledge gained through the appropriate channel. These educational objectives can be itemized as follows:
Computer Science as a field grew out of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computational sciences over 50 years ago. It synthesized aspects of these fields and grew exponentially and reached a level of diverse research disciplines joint with other fields while continues its exponential growth over the past half century, both in terms of the number of computer science practitioners and its economic and social impact on the world.
Since its inception, the Department of Computer Science has viewed its role as a model and impact — regionally, nationally, and internationally — in education, research, and technology transfer. We believe that the synergistic combination of these elements continues to be essential.
The mission of the Computer Science program at NUN is to educate majors in the principles and practices of computer science, preparing them for graduate school, for
Joining a student group is a great way to explore majors in the faculty. Whether you want to work hands on with and design project, or you just want to meet other students, it all starts with attending a meeting or contacting one of the faculty academic staff. Competitions offer opportunities to do hands-on work in a public forum.
Computer Science department students are encouraged for these events and are often sponsored by department or faculty or university and also professional organizations and corporations might support.
