DESCRIPTION

The BSc (Hons) Computer Science aims to develop students the most essential skills required in software development and programming. Specifically, the course fully covers the specialised fields of application development, database development, software engineering, systems programming, mobile programming, graphical user interfaces (GUIs) and computer games, in order for students to be prepared for a successful professional career in the software industry. At the same time, students explore the practical and theoretical aspects as well as the methodologies of developing and maintaining distributed systems and networks, while developing the required technical and professional skills.

Throughout the programme students use all the latest programming tools, languages and industry methods being, thus, able to develop software independently, reliably and effectively, meeting today’s industry needs. Teaching staff are scientists and researchers, as well as professionals of the computer science industry.

This course comprises of 20-credits modules, except for the diploma thesis of the 3rd year that equals to 40 credits. Most of the modules are semester-based, while there are few yearlong ones. First year modules and 50% of the 2nd year modules are taught & assessed in Greek, while the remaining modules are taught & assessed in English. (Note: This programme is also delivered entirely in English).

The programme emphasises on new technologies, such as android, cloud computing, mobile computing and covers all modern programming languages. Its highlight is that students develop fundamental and in-depth knowledge of software engineering (irrespective of the programming languages they might learn to use) as they learn how to develop and apply algorithmic solutions to certain problems through engineering methodologies. Therefore, they are protected against changes in programming tools that inevitably occur over the years and possess the ability to comprehend any new language that emerges.

In the final year students are able to develop their own programming language and through designated modules they also become familiar with the IT industry world, since they design and implement integrated software applications for virtual businesses.
